1968

Today in Royal History is the 51st birthday of Prince Friso of Orange-Nassau born Prince Johan-Friso Bernhard Christiaan David van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg of the Netherlands, Prince of Orange-Nassau, Jonkheer van Amsberg. He was the second child of Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands and Claus von Amsberg. He was a member of the Dutch Royal Family but because of his marriage without an Act of Consent in 2004 to Mabel Wisse Smit, he lost his membership of the Dutch Royal House, was stripped of his 'Prince of the Netherlands' title and was barred from the line of succession to the throne. This marriage brought the couple two children namely Countesses Luana and Zaria.

I recall the day vividly as we were off from school.

Pieter was,as we know,the first `commoner ` to get married into the Duch RF.
No titles granted,as Juliana wished a normal situation.But now,after so many years if there would be one person who would deserve a title it would be Pieter van Vollenhoven.So truly respected and loved,wise and a humour that leaves all in stitches.A dear father,uncle and husband and a confidant of the King with whom he has a very special relationship.They still,after all these years celebrate their wedding day with their best men and closest friends,Margriet wearing her wedding dress every time...One doesn´t hear that often of Ladies who wear let alone fit in their wedding dress 53 years after the ceremony...

At the time of his birth he was the grandson of the 1st King of the Netherlands,and his mother Anna Pavlovna of Russia was a daughter of Paul I of Russia .

Here's a painting from 1817 of Prince Willem Alexander Paul Frederik Lodewijk Nassau van Oranje as a child.

His mother was Anne, Princess Royal and Princess of Orange who herself was a daughter of George II of and Caroline of Ansbach.The Princess at one stage was a potential bride for King Louis XV of France but the French insistence that Anne must convert to Roman Catholicism caused the negotiations to fall apart.

March 16, 1815 the Kingdom of the Netherlands is created at the urging of the powers of the Congress of Vienna. William IV, Prince of Orange was named king of the new kingdom and Luxembourg. He took the name William I.

William had been forced into exile during the Napoleonic wars. He was in Prussia and met with Alexander I of Russia. Alexander promised his aid in returning the Netherlands to an independent state, with the aid of Prussia.

William I was married to Wilhemine of Prussia, a cousin. Her father was Frederick William II of Prussia, and she had been raised at the court of her great Uncle Frederick the Great. While their marriage was a political one, it was also a great love match.

The couple had four children (and 2 miscarriages). Their son William II would serve as an aid de camp of the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo. William II married Anna Pavlovna of Russia, a younger sister of Alexander I who had helped William I reclaim his country.

Their son Frederik married his cousin Louise of Prussia. Louise's father was Queen Wilhemine's older brother Frederick William III of Prussia. One of their daughters married Charles XV of Sweden.


William I and his wife had 2 daughters. Pauline died at age 6 after getting ill when the family had to flee from French troops in 1806. Like her brother Frederik, the second Marianne married a child of their maternal uncle Frederick William III. In her case she married his youngest son Albert. Marianne bore her husband five children. But she left her unfaithful husband 3 years after the birth of her youngest, to live with her lover and former coachman, Johannes von Rossum. Seven months after her husband divorced her she bore a son to Johannes, also named Johannes. Not welcome in Prussia or home in the Hague, she lived her life in Italy. She and Johannes were together for 30 years before he died. Their son died in 1861, and Johannes died in 1873. Marianne died ten years later, and was buried next to the love of her life and their son.

Thanks for that reminder. The country only lasted for a short time, until that fateful night in a Brussels theatre on July 21st 1830. The King had even bigger hopes originally as he dreamed of having the entire area from the Dutch border to & including the Duchy of Nassau under the rule of his younger son Prince Frederik. Sadly the Prussians got it, which eventually plunged Europe in disaster.

Wilhelmine of Prussia was the 1st Queen consort of the Netherlands and died at Noordeinde Palace in The Hague in 1837.

Hortense de Beauharnais was styled Queen consort of Holland from 1806 - 1810.
