Nu.nl has a funny anecdote about Queen WIlhelmina and the 1928 Olympics. The Olympic Comitee had decided on the opningsdate for these Olympics in Amsterdam without consulting the court. The Queen took it as an insult and consequently the court told them that HM could not attend the opening since she was on a travel to Norway. The NOC tried to persuade HM to return early, but she refused and came 3 back 3 days after the Olympics started.

Article in Dutch here.

Queen Wilhelmina inspecting the militairy and attending a militairy parade, flanked by general Henri Winkelman, just before WWII started here:



The army on horses and bicycle's, they had one tank which was on a militairy exposition in Berlin at the time of the invasion. Queen Wilhelmina was very frustrated by the state of the army, and for over a decade pressed for more budget for tthe defence department, in vain.

I am not Helena but I don't think that Queen Wilhelmina's reign anybody was ennobled. She did present orders, like knight of the Dutch Lion and such, but it will be hard to trace. Your best option might be to contact the ministery of general affairs.

Does anybody remember if prof. Fasseur is very detailed about how Wilhelmina reacted when kaiser Wilhelm II entered the Netherlands in 1918 and asked for asylum. I don't have the books with me, so I can't check but during a lecture my professor said that the Kaiser came here due to Queen Wilhelmina. I know that has been a popular opinion but isn't it a fasle one?

A clip of Omroep Zeeland about the Queen arriving back to The Netherlands at the end of the war. She spent 4 days in a ruined proince of Zeeland:



She mostly wanted to talk to members of the resistance and to people who lost their loved ones. Three people are sharing their personal stories about the meeting (& their war experiences)

This week a new book by Prof. Cees Fasseur about Queen Wilhelmina was published. The title is: 'A lady of Iron'. He mainly focusses on her political activities. The books title was chosen as 'Wilhelmina was known and respected among her ministers for her iron will and intellect'.

Nieuw boek Fasseur over Wilhelmina: Een dame van ijzer - Koninklijk huis - Reformatorisch Dagblad

Later this month the letters from Queen Wilhelmina to her former nanny Miss Saxon Winter will be published too.

In November also a specila exposition at palace 't Loo will be opened, showing the queen's dresses, pictures, film images etc.

On 28 November it will be 50 years since the Queen passed away.
