Duke Hendrik Wladimir Albrecht Ernst of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (April 19, 1876 – July 3, 1934), Prince of the Netherlands, was the husband of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands.
He was born in Schwerin, the youngest son of Friedrich Franz II, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, and his third wife, Princess Marie of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt. Heinrich was created Prince Hendrik of the Netherlands on February 6, 1901, and married Queen Wilhelmina on February 7, 1901, at The Hague.
The marriage was an unhappy one that did little more than meet its obligation by producing an heir. They had one child, Princess Juliana, in whose favor her mother abdicated on September 4, 1948.

Prince Hendrik received some popularity in The Netherlands because of his role with the ferry ´SS Berlin´ in 1907. More on that can be found on this page (in Dutch).

He was the first member of the Dutch RF who wanted a white funeral as he saw his death as the birth of a new life:
