Friday evening the Dutch TV showed a program on the State Visit to Luxembourg (as is the custom with every outgoing State Visit). In the Castle of Vianden (one of the King's titles is Count of Vianden) the Dutch Royal House showed some items from their collection.

"Ah, there it is: how it al started, in 1255" the King said. There was a display with the original Act of division between the brothers Walram and Otto of Nassau, dividing the House in two branches.

And indeed, a perchment with two seals. Almost 800 years old. The Grand-Duke wondered where his part of the document was. "Your copy went lost" said the King "so we take all yours back because we do have the document!" he joked, to hilarity of the Grand-Duke.

Queen Máxima did not want to answer on questions about the diadem with the House Diamonds. Did she choose these because of the two Houses of the same dynasty? I am not sure id she refused because the question was impertinent or that she was not aware of that Luxembourg has another branch of the same House. Her spouse, a historian, probably will have whispered to her: use the diadem with the House diamonds.

But it is interesting that the diadem was never used before at a dutch luxemburgian State Visit. Also not by Queen Julian who used it quiet often.

According to Blauw Bloed the scions of Otto (Willem-Alexander) and Walram (Henri) used the exhibition at Burg Vianden for a flash-course "History of the House Nassau" to their interested spouses.

The fact that the Orange-Nassaus got the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg after the Congress of Vienna in 1815 was mainly based on their widespread territories as Counts of Vianden.

The Orange-Nassaus were Counts of Vianden. But when King/Grand-Duke Willem III died in 1890, not his daughter Princess Wilhelmina but the head of the other Nassau branch became Grand-Duke of Luxembourg and Count of Vianden.

It seems that it is agreed that bot the Grand-Duke as well the King keep using the title Count of Vianden in the so-called intitulé (the Etc. Etc. Etc. in the titulature).

I am thinking Maria Teresa and Maxima spoke Spanish in between them. How tall is Maria Teresa, she looks very short. I love all the dresses from the state dinner, all they look beautiful
