The Betuwe is an area in the Dutch province Gelderland. Tacitus knew it as Insula Batavorum . It could be considered a large river island, but nowadays it is not viewed as such when it became known as "Men's Island" or "Manneneiland" due to the evacuation of its entire civilian population during Operation Market Garden, leaving only soldiers behind). When the Pannerdens Kanaal was dug between 1701 and 1709, the easternmost tip of the Betuwe was cut off from the rest of the region.
The Betuwe is situated between the Waal and Rhine/Lek rivers, surrounding the Linge stream, and is famous for its fruit production. The largest and most important city in the area is Tiel, where a jam factory named De Betuwe exists.
