The flood of 1809 was a flood during which large parts of the centre of the Netherlands in the area of the Maas, Waal, IJssel, and Merwede flooded. The flood resulted in an estimated two hundred victims.
Due to a very harsh winter, the kills in the Biesbosch were frozen. This resulted in the water in the river being led to sea via Dordrecht. This caused large ice dams behind which the water level quickly rose with dike breaches as a result. Large parts along Maas, Waal and Merwede thus flooded in January 1809. It is one of the biggest disasters in the river area in history. Like he did during the Leiden gunpowder disaster in 1807 and the flood of the Zeeland Wolphaartsdijk in 1808, Lodewijk Napoleon also visited this disaster area in 1809.
