In this article I compare the new Dutch inheritance law of 2003 with other jurisdictions on the international scene. The paper is divided in three parts. Intestate succession law for blood relatives, and for surviving spouse and imperative or forced succession law. For each topic I comment on the new Dutch rules and then put them on the international scene to conclude that the new Dutch law has been germanified for its intestate law and anglo-americanized for its imperative law.
