Hi, I’ve just come across the following sentence and I wonder if has been could or should be replaced by had been:
Amsterdam has been the seat of government for only a short period. From 1808 to 1810, during the Kingdom of Holland, Louis Bonaparte resided in Amsterdam and declared the city capital of his kingdom. The former town hall was made the Royal Palace.
Thanks in advance,
