The city is located in the Denderstreek, which is part of Flanders. The Tournai–Ninove–Dendermonde road runs through the municipality. History [ edit ] In Roman times, Ninove was known as Nemetacum and was important because of its location on several commercial roads. In 1047, Baldwin V consolidated his victory over a revolt led by Godfrey III with a charter from Emperor Henry III confirming many privileges to the townspeople including exemption from all authority except that of their count and bishop. After this date it remained an independent county ruled by successive counts until 1795 when it was annexed under French rule during the Napoleonic Wars. It returned to Austrian rule after 1815 but became part of Belgium following its independence in 1830.
