The siege of Antwerp took place during the Eighty Years' War (July 1584 - August 1585).

After the devastation of the Spanish Fury in 1576, Antwerp was firmly engaged in the rebellion against the rule of Spain and joined the Union of Utrecht in 1579.

Philip II of Spain sent the Duke of Parma to regain control of the lost territories in the Low Countries. After succesfully recapturing the County of Flanders and the Duchy of Brabant, the Duke of Parma laid siege to the city of Antwerp in 1585 by closing off the city's waterways. In response, the surrounding lowlands were flooded, but the Spanish troops largely held firm.

On August 17, 1585 Antwerp finally surrendered and the Protestant population was allowed to leave. The blockage of the river Scheldt, combined with the massive migration of many skilled tradesmen effectively ended the golden age of the city of Antwerp. Most Protestants migrated to the northern United Provinces and were a contributing factor to the subsequent 'Dutch Golden Age'.
