Marie Louise ,Princess of Orange had a really long widowhood following the accidental drowning of her husband Prince Johan Willem Friso in 1711.The Princess outlived him by 54 years!

Its a shame that the name was Marie Louise was not used as a name for future Dutch Princesses in her honour ,perhaps it sounded too Catholic?

Marie X or Maria X is certainly more common among Catholic royals (and non royals). May certainly have been a consideration. You see a lot of the Marie/Maria X or X Maria among the Catholic royal houses like Belgium and Austria.

I suppose more important people had to be named first. Her granddaughters were named for the Princess of Wales (Caroline) and the Princess Royal (Anne) respectively. Of all the wives of the stadholders she had the least impressive background, being the daughter of a mere landgrave and married to a stadholder of just Frisia and Groningen.

Her grandson Willem V, to whom she served as a regent for several years, did name his daughter -the later H Pss of Brunswick- 'Louiza'. I am not sure if this was for Marie-Louise but it might have been. It does not seem to be a name that came from the Prussian family.

Note that in Frisia she was referred to as 'Marijke' or 'Maaike', a name later used for the 4th daughter of Queen Juliana. Later on Pss Marijke preferred to be known by her 2nd name, Christina.

That's what I was thinking there were quite a few Catholic Princess Marie X over the years!

March 10, 1966 wedding of Princess Beatrix and Clause.



The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Queen Beatrix's Gown

Beatrix was the 28 year old eldest daughter of Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld. Claus Felix von Amsberg was a 40 year old diplomat from Germany.

The couple had met on New Years eve 1962 at a dinner hosted by Count von Oeynhausen-Sierstorpff (a distant relative of them both). And in 1964 at the wedding of Princess Tatjana of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Moritz, Landgrave of Hesse.

There was opposition to their union as Claus had been a member of the Hitler Youth Movement. Juliana reluctantly agreed to the marriage, and the couple were granted state approval in 1965. Claus was given Dutch citizenship.

The day before the wedding there was a river cruise in Amsterdam and later a ball hosted for 400 guests. The day time event included a concert performed by children who came from each of the provinces.

The wedding was performed by the Mayor of Amsterdam, Gijsbert van Hall in the city hall. They had a blessing though in the Westekerkerk to follow.

There were protests and smoke bombs thrown during the wedding, with 1000 young protestors out. 8000 police and soldiers had to be sent out to bring it under control.

Beatrix wore the Wurtemberg pearl tiara, and a brooch on her gown, both that had belonged to Queen Sophie.


Her bridesmaids:

-Princess Christina: her younger sister
-Princess Christina of Sweden
-Christina von Amsberg: Claus' sister
-Lady Elizabeth Anson: cousin of Elizabeth II
-Joanna Roell: a daughter of one of Juliana's former ladies in waiting
-Eugenie Loudon: a good friend of Beatrix, Dutch noblewoman

Their witnesses for their civil wedding:

-Prince Aschwin of Lippe-Biesterfeld: the bride's paternal Uncle
-Baron Julius von dem Bussche-Haddenhausen: Claus' maternal Uncle
-William Drees: he was a former premier, and he served as leader of the Dutch resistance during WWII
-Princess Alexandra of Kent
-Count Ferdinand von Bismark:he would later serve as godfather to Willem Alexander


1600 guests attended. Of the crowned heads who attended, they were mainly younger monarchs. Older monarchs mainly sent their younger heirs.

some of the guests:
-Princess Marina with her son Michael (her daughter Alexandra was a witness in the civil ceremony). They were sent to represent Elizabeth II.
-CP Harald of Norway
-Jean and Josephine-Charlotte of Luxembourg (and Prince Charles)
-Baudouin and Fabiola of Belgium
-Constantine II and Anne-Marie
-Princess Juan Carlos and Princess Sofia of Spain
-Benedikte of Denmark
-Albert and Paola
-Infanta Pilar
-Prince Karim Aga Khan
-Princess Margaretha of Sweden (Christina as well but she was bridesmaid)
-Princess Irene of Greece



One important guest was Richard, 6th Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg. Richard was a friend of Claus and seemed to have acted as a decoy for the couple when they were courting to give them privacy. And in a sweet twist he would meet Princess Benedikte at the wedding and they would marry.


The couple honeymooned in Mexico.


The couple were married for 36 years before Claus died in 2002. They had 3 sons, and now have 8 grandchildren. Claus was only alive for the birth of one grandchild, Eloise who was born months before his death. His only grandson is named for him.

If there ever was a Royal lovematch,it was between Beatrix and Claus.

The Duchy is often over-looked in Dutch history books due to more obvious counties and duchies such as Brabant-Limbourg, Flanders and Holland-Zeeland-Hainaut, which all were inherited by the Valois-Burgundy dynasty and later by the Habsburgs.

Both of her sons died in 1371 without any descendants. This started the first war of succession for the Duchy with the Heeckerens and the Bronckhorsts in opposing factions, namely of the two steph-daughters of Eleanor: Css Marie of Blois and Dss Machteld of Jülich. In the end the war was won by the youngest daughter and her son Duke William of Jülich.

It was the last territory in the low countries to resist the rising power of the Bourgundians/Habsburgs (save perhaps the archbishopric of Liège). Two generations later there was another war of succession and the Habsburgs (Emp. Charles Quint) took the Duchy by force. There were plans to attach the Duchies of Berg and Jülich to the Bourgundian circle in the low countries too but they did not materialize.
