If you would have told me I lived in such a way that I could post this, 20 years ago, I would have laughed....

Queen Beatrix will abdicate in April...we will now have a King for the first time since 1890!


Kingdom of the Netherlands (King/Queen):
1813 – 1840 William I (as Sovereign Prince 1813 – 15, abdicated)
1840 – 1849 William II
1849 – 1890 William III
1890 – 1948 Wilhelmina (abdicated)
1948 – 1980 Juliana (abdicated)
1980 - Beatrix

So, the crown prince, William Alexander, will be crowned King of The Netherlands....

 

Hugs, Kathi

That's a lot of years for women to be in power!  (They must be doing something right!)

Hugs,
