I thought this remarkable woman deserved her own thread. Feel free to add info, pics, anecdotes etc.

I shall begin by saying that Winston Churchill once confessed that Queen Wilhelima was the only woman he was a little afraid of!  ;D


I add a wonderfull picture of Queen Wilhelmina,aged 17,wearing a Frisian costume,

One of the first issues facing the young Queen was Nicky's(Tsar Nicholas II) proposal for a peace-conference,to be held in The Hague.The conference,after much deliberations,as "no government wished to be held responsible for the reckage of this conference",finally started
on May 18th 1899 the birthday of the Tsar,the conference was opened.Allthough initially in favour,Wilhelmina didn't attend herself.

But,to be honest I'm looking at such a large piece to translate,I'll have to save that for another time,sorry. :-/

Does anyone know if there any way to find names of courtiers or ladies in waiting to the Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, between 1890 and 1900. Also how is a person chosen for these positions and what are their responsiblities.
Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Mary

Picture of the state funeral of queen Emma in 1934. The procession is on the way to Delft the New Church. Here is the mausoleum for the Orange family. I will later on try to post a picture of the floorplan of the royal vault. The vault is private and not open for public. This was the last Dutch royal funeral in black. Since then the colours are white and or purple. Come to see the picture it looks a lot like the funeral processions of Juliana and Bernard.

Theprocession is leaving fro palace Noordeinde.  At the stairs behind the cofin ar standing the last two members of the Orange family in 1934, being queen Wilhelmina and princess Juliana, both in white.

The funeral procession of queen Wilhelmina in 1962, also in white, entering the rown of Delft. Wilhelmina talked in her last years about her last voyage to Delft, meaning her funeral procession.



The procession in front of the new church. The last resting place of the Orange family since William the Silent was burried here. The funeral coach can be seen at the stables of museum palace Het Loo. I wonder why this carriage was not used for the funeral procession of queen Juliana because her wish was to be burried also completely in white.
