Gelderland is the largest of the Netherlands' provinces. Its capital is Arnhem.

The province was formed in 1814 from parts of the former duchy of Gelre, excluding its German territories and what was to become the north of Limburg. It's divided in four distinct areas: the Veluwe in the north, the Achterhoek in the east, and a part in the south which name could be translated to riverland, as it's intersected by the rivers Maas, Waal and Rijn (Rhine). This part in itself is further divided in Betuwe, Bommelerwaard and Land van Maas en Waal. The fourth area is called Rijk van Nijmegen and surrounds the city of that name. Various different dialects are spoken in the province, and although many different protestant denominations dominate, especially in the Veluwe, the Land van Maas en Waal and Rijk van Nijmegen and part of the Achterhoek are predominantly catholic. The Betuwe is mainly protestant, with catholic communities mainly in the cities.
