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:

Could someone explain me this? Was he known for being violent or did the French caricaturist thought domestic violence is funny???

To my (limited) knowledge he was not abusive.

No he wasn't. It seems like anti-German WWI propaganda to me; displaying the German prince as a brute.

I have the idea it had to do with the clashing idea of the Duke being the future Pater Familias vs the Queen being the Mater Patriae. In the double biography on the Queen (Part I - Wilhelmina, The Young Queen) one can read how the Government and Prime Minister Kuyper (a man with conservative norms, standards and values) apparently had problems with the intended union of Queen Wilhelmina and Duke Heinrich and how to fit this in a male-dominated way of thinking.

Queen Wilhelmina was the last male agnate of the House Orange-Nassau (like her contemporary, the later Grand-Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg, would be the last male agnate of the House Nassau). There were ideas in renaming the Royal House in that of Mecklenburg, Orange-Nassau-Mecklenburg, etc. because the Duke could not be denied planting his ancient royal tree firmly in Dutch soil... Prime Minister Kuyper, a very educated and smart man by the way, had remarkable oldfashioned ideas about the role of the man as head of the family, Heinrich as head of the Royal House, etc.

I have the idea this cartoon was about this theoretic conflict. I agree with the previous posters. If anyone was possibly ever abusive in this marriage, then it was Queen Wilhelmina, a very, very demanding lady and not at all the goodnatured, laid-back Duke Heinrich, who was in no any way an equal to the Queen. His famous quote "Ich bin nur das Gepäck" says it all. ("I am just the luggage").
