Who is the other lady in this picture ?
Where is Wilhelmina's husband ? Prince Henrik ?

Also, was Juliana the only child ?

wilhelmina holds a speech in war time...her ministers often tried to persauade her not to use such strong words...but Wilhelmina did not listen and told the dutch nation all about the 'moffen'....she helped the moral of the dutch and became the symbol of resistance (and she was also called mother of the resistance-movement or mother of the fatherland during these years)

her husband (and her mother) died in 1933.....the other lady is bernhards mother...Princess Armgard (who went under the nickname 'Tolle Lola' as she was a party girl to put it nicely.....two total different personalities

in the US..during the war..she cared less and less for clothes (she did not care much for ythem before the war either...untill her marriagae for example Juliana was forbidden to wear make up...when she had to appear on television and somebody asked the princess if she would use some make-up,m the queen replied sharply: 'the princess will appear as God and I have made her!&#39 ..the queen wears a daisy....symbol of the resistance..and her grand daughter was named after this flower (Margriet)

an emotional moment...a frail Wilhelmina crosses the dutch/ belgian border in 1944.....with tears in her eyes..and in the eyes of most of the on-lookers as well...

in the US with the 'Roosevelts'..Wilhelmina was the first foreign head of state to speak to the parlaiment.....and FDR insisted that he should stand up, out of his wheelchair for 'his' queen

after the qqueen returned she refused to live in her palaces, because the germans had lived there as well, she renamed the japanese porcelain the chinese porcelain, she broke of contact with many german relations etc etc...and she wanted to break out of the 'golden cage'....so we see her on a bike......her ministers could persuade her that the people did not wwant her to live in a mere villa...so after a few months she returned to the palaces...

Queen Wilhelmina, though was not a beauty, but I think she was pleasant looking, natrually-poised and elegant when she was in her youth.

When she was 15 years of age, she visted Queen Victoria in London with her mother the Queen-Regeant, Queen Victoria wrote in her diary about how nice the young queen looked and how elegant she was. Queen Victoria wrote that the young queen also looked very dignified but not snobbish and she had very pleasant manners, very ladylike.


When I saw her picture taken when she was fifteen, I really thought she, though not infatuating, but was extremely charming. From her pictures when she was still young, it seems to me that she got good taste in clothing.


When she was fifteen.
