Nieuw Helmond is a large town on Central Island and the capital of Helmond Parish. It is the second city in the parish, after Roodstad

HistoryEdit

Nieuw Helmond was originally founded around 950-960 by Arabian settlers from the Brezonde area and was known as Mazir. The settlement was one of the largest in the medieval Taifa of Burzand.

In 1244, Mazir was the site of the landing of King Jaime of Aragon and site of first battle in the Aragonese Conquest of Brunant. Mazir was destroyed and abandoned. In the 1450s, 46 settlers led by Pieter de Jong and founding father Lodewijk Steen rebuilt and resettled the town, naming it Nieuw Helmond.
