In the new biography by Dr. Koch it is revealed that also Willem I had extramarital childrne. The first one was in 1806, at a tragic point in his life. His daughter Pauline just died and he lost his principality of Fulda. He found comfort int he arms of the governess of Pauline, and a son was born in October 1807. Willem and the governess, Julie von der Goltz, would get 4 children together.The archives in The Hague show an allowance for the youngest one, Wilhelmina von Dietz. Willem's mother, Princess Wilhelmina, TOLD THE King to take financial care for his children.

When Willem's wife Queen Wilhelmina Frederika (Mimi) dies, it is surprising that he does not choose for Julie, but pushes her aside and marries countess Henriette d'Oultremont de Wegimont de Warfusée.

Queen Wilhelmina Frederika was a student of art and regarded as a talented dilettante.
She was inducted as an honorary member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts.

Belgian Catholics objected to the interference of the Protestant King Willem I in the training of novice priests.
