Cartoons, Paintings, Parodies etc. of the RF

I found some nice (and old) cartoons, mainly about Queen Wilhelmina, so I wanted to make a new thread here we can post more things like that.

The first cartoon was made upon her golden jubilee. The dutch virgin is holding a laurel crown above Wilhelmina while William the Silent (father of the fatherland) stands next to her. References like these were very popular, especially with Wilhelmina (who, not coinsidently was named mother of the fatherland later on). In her biography she makes a lot of remarks about Willem of Orange, and about his last father-in-law, Gaspard de Coligny (leader of the french Hugenots). In the televisionseries on Wilhelmina, which was made a couple of years ago we could see Wilhelmina in the Orange Hall in Palace Huis ten Bosch, talking to her anscestors and how she wants to be worthy of them. She had a portrait of William of Orange in her office (as does the present Queen), and a buste of Stadholder Willem III, King William III of GB, which was another rolemodel. She wasn't blind for faults of her anscestors either. When stadholder Willem V was reburried she refused to attend the reburial of 'that idiot'.

Picture (and the following ones) all from www.hetgeheugenvannederland.nl

This second cartoon was made after the failed socialist revolution of 1918. The men repesenting anarchy, bolsjewism etc are walking away, while Wilhelmina stands firmly on the dunes (also popular in these things, bcause of our struggle against the water), congratulated by a woman in traditional fisherladies (?) costume, representing the people.

This one was made during the 2nd world war, about the flight of Queen Wilhelmina. A german officer tries to catch her and use her for Nazi-purposes, but he cannot catch the royal mantle (note the dunes again).

A socialist cartoon, showing the Queen, disguised as a poor lady, begging for money. This cartoon came after the Court asked the gouverment for more money to restore a palace.

Another socialist cartoon. Wilhelmina is watching a group of socialist protesters while a minister is commenting, 'don't be afraid, they are only beggars'. This comment was famously made to Margaretha of Parma, who ruled the Netherlands during the times of Phillip II of Spain as well, when dutch representives came asking for independance. After this the french word for beggars was 'dutchified' and used by a group of dutch men who liberated our cities (Geuzen).

Queen Emma telling positive things about the movement of ladies rights to her daughter. Ironically Wilhelmina never was a big fan of this movement, contrairy to what the cartoon implies.

Wilhelmina: 'they are asking women suffrage'.
Emma: 'Right (as in a right to vote), my daughter, look here and see in what a smaal country can be grand'.

Well Sara, I googled but there wasn't much:

Here a cartoon of Peter van Straaten, for 'Vrij Nederland'. It shows a naked woman )Mabel, trying to cover up everything )as was the impression during the whole Bruinsma-thing:



this picture is from the same cartoonist and for the same magazine. In honour of the engagement of The Prince of Orange:



Clothing chain C&A had this campaign, after Catharina-Amalia was born (source: C&A):

Two more from the site www.hetgeheugenvannederland:

The first cartoon is of a socialist newspaper. The Queen, her husband Duke Hendrik of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and Princess Juliana. Outside are socialist protesters. The Queen looks at her husband and says 'O Meckelburg, you wonderful country (implying that in Mecklenburg socialists weren't as active).



The 2nd one on the occassion of Juliana's state visit to the US (she got a ticker-tape -?- parade btw):
