william I and belgium

Why did the South feel so differently about King William I from the North? How did William I come by nicknames like the Copper King and the Canal King? Why did the Belgians daub this slogan on street walls around 1830: “We want William out - should William grow wiser - we want William back”? What was the long-term significance of this period for Belgium?
