The Lagerhuis (Lower House of the Kingdom) is the House of Commons of Batavian Parliament. It was established in 1524 AN after the end of the Davignonrepublic and establishment the Second Kingdom of Batavia. It replaced the unicameral parliament of the First Kingdom of Batavia, which mainly consisted of a small group of land owners. It acts as the primary legislature of the nation, and is responsible for passing laws. The Lagerhuis holds its meetings in the Huys van het Bataafsche Volck, in 's Koningenwaarde.

Traditionally, the Lagerhuis is dominated by a majority of conservative moderates and pro-monarchist parties.
