Queen Wilhelmina (1880-1962)

One of the most extraordinairy dutch women ever is Queen Wilhelmina, grand mother of Queen Beatrix......in 1888, after the death of her father, half-brothers and uncles the hope of the dutch nation rested on this 8 yo queen...after 58 years she abdicated in 1948, and was populairy known as 'mother of the fatherland' (The famous William the Silent -who was her example- was called Father of the fatherland...so a very special name&#33 I shall post some pics of her life, I try to do that in chronological order & I hope that you are also interested in this very special lady (and not ponly in the red suits of Maxima ;-) ...I shall not name the sources of theese pictures as I performed a search in google..and later in Corbis & I could not save the captions...so here we go...the first one, Wilhelmina (or 'Wimpie'as her parents affectionately called her, with a pony
