The first 'full-fledged country' that became a republic was the Dutch Republic (the Netherlands), that declared its independence from King Philip II of Spain on 26 July 1581. The Dutch Act of Abjuration was probably influenced by the Magna Carta, an English charter from 1215. In turn, the Act of Abjuration arguably influenced the United States Declaration of Independence, making it (the first modern?) republic on July 4, 1776.

When did Netherlands gain independence?

1648 is when The Netherlands won independence. I don't know where people are getting the "1609", but that's B.S. I'm a student doing a project on The Netherlands, and I know for a fact, it's 1648... So there yuh go! (: Actually the Netherlands have a longer history than that. Its true that peace of Munster you revered to was signed in 1648. Witch consisted of a merger between the northern netherlands and the southern netherlands. But these netherlands were already there and therefor the origins of the dutch independence has to be sought before the 80 year war. I believe the "independence" has its origins in the "Plakkaat van Verlatinghe" which was signed on 7-26-1581. It stated that: "The throne of Filips II was abandoned." And was signed by multiple provinces that make up the Netherlands today.
