It was founded before stocks and shares existed, so was not strictly a stock exchange.
Early recorded versions of the name include Ando Verpia on Roman coins found in the city centre,  Germanic Andhunerbo from around the time Austrasia became a separate kingdom that is, about CE ,  and possibly originally Celtic Andoverpis in Dado 's Life of St. Eligius Vita Eligii from about CE. The form Antverpia is New Latin. A Germanic Frankish or Frisian origin could contain prefix anda "against" and a noun derived from the verb werpen "to throw" and denote, for example: land thrown up at the riverbank; an alluvial deposit ; a mound like a terp thrown up as a defence against something or someone ; or a wharf.
There is a folklore tradition that the name Antwerpen is from Dutch handwerpen "hand-throwing". A giant called Antigoon is said to have lived near the Scheldt river.
He extracted a toll from passing boatmen, severed the hand of anyone who did not pay, and threw it in the river. Eventually the giant was killed by a young hero named Silvius Brabo , who cut off the giant's own hand and flung it into the river. This is unlikely to be the true origin, but it is celebrated by a statue illustrated further below in the city's main market square, the Grote Markt.
Historical Antwerp allegedly had its origins in a Gallo-Roman vicus. Excavations carried out in the oldest section near the Scheldt, — ref. Princeton , produced pottery shards and fragments of glass from mid-2nd century to the end of the 3rd century. The earliest mention of Antwerp dates from the 4th century.
In the 4th century, Antwerp was first named, having been settled by the Germanic Franks. The Merovingian Antwerp was evangelized by Saint Amand in the 7th century.
At the end of the 10th century, the Scheldt became the boundary of the Holy Roman Empire. In the 11th century, the best-known leader of the First Crusade — , Godfrey of Bouillon , was originally Margrave of Antwerp , from until his death in , though he was later also Duke of Lower Lorraine — and Defender of the Holy Sepulchre — In the 12th century, Norbert of Xanten established a community of his Premonstratensian canons at St.
Michael's Abbey at Caloes. Antwerp was also the headquarters of Edward III during his early negotiations with Jacob van Artevelde , and his son Lionel , the Duke of Clarence , was born there in After the silting-up of the Zwin and the consequent decline of Bruges , the city of Antwerp, then part of the Duchy of Brabant , grew in importance.
At the end of the 15th century the foreign trading houses were transferred from Bruges to Antwerp, and the building assigned to the association of English merchants active in the city is specifically mentioned in London bankers were too small to operate on that scale, and Antwerp had a highly efficient bourse that itself attracted rich bankers from around Europe.
After the s, the city's banking business declined: England ended its borrowing in Antwerp in Fernand Braudel states that Antwerp became "the centre of the entire international economy, something Bruges had never been even at its height. During the first half of the 16th century Antwerp grew to become the second-largest European city north of the Alps. Many foreign merchants were resident in the city. Francesco Guicciardini , the Florentine envoy, stated that hundreds of ships would pass in a day, and 2, carts entered the city each week.
Portuguese ships laden with pepper and cinnamon would unload their cargo. According to Luc-Normand Tellier "It is estimated that the port of Antwerp was earning the Spanish crown seven times more revenues than the Spanish colonization of the Americas". Without a long-distance merchant fleet, and governed by an oligarchy of banker-aristocrats forbidden to engage in trade, the economy of Antwerp was foreigner-controlled, which made the city very cosmopolitan, with merchants and traders from Venetian Republic , Republic of Genoa , Republic of Ragusa , Spain and Portugal.
Antwerp had a policy of toleration, which attracted a large crypto- Jewish community composed of migrants from Spain and Portugal. By , the Portuguese had established Antwerp as one of their main shipping bases, bringing in spices from Asia and trading them for textiles and metal goods. The city's trade expanded to include cloth from England, Italy and Germany, wines from Germany, France and Spain, salt from France, and wheat from the Baltic.
The city's skilled workers processed soap, fish, sugar, and especially cloth. Banks helped finance the trade, the merchants, and the manufacturers. The city was a cosmopolitan center; its bourse opened in , "To the merchants of all nations. Antwerp experienced three booms during its golden age: the first based on the pepper market, a second launched by American silver coming from Seville ending with the bankruptcy of Spain in , and a third boom, after the stabilising Treaty of Cateau-Cambresis in , based on the textiles industry.
In the century after , the city's economy and population declined dramatically The Portuguese merchants left in , and there was much less trade in English cloth. Numerous financial bankruptcies began around Amsterdam replaced Antwerp as the major trading center for the region. The religious revolution of the Reformation erupted in violent riots in August , as in other parts of the Low Countries. When the Eighty Years' War broke out in , commercial trading between Antwerp and the Spanish port of Bilbao collapsed and became impossible.
Subsequently, the city joined the Union of Utrecht in and became the capital of the Dutch Revolt. In , Alessandro Farnese, Duke of Parma and Piacenza , captured it after a long siege and as part of the terms of surrender its Protestant citizens were given two years to settle their affairs before quitting the city. Antwerp's banking was controlled for a generation by Genoa , and Amsterdam became the new trading centre. This impediment remained in force until , although the provisions were relaxed during French rule from to , and also during the time Belgium formed part of the Kingdom of the United Netherlands to However, he was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo before he could see the plan through.
