The life of Wilhelmina van Oranje Nassau, Queen of the Netherlands during the second world war
10 October 2006 | by (Tilburg, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Wilhelmina Helena Pauline Maria (Anne Wil Blankers) was the Dutch queen during the first and the second world war. She had a tough life, being the first queen in Dutch history, not sure of being strong and dignified enough to face her ancestors who were all very dignified leaders and kings. Wilhelmina was a whimsical monarch, she was oversimplified, impatient and self-willed. But she was also combative and concerned. Her dominant character brought her frequently in conflict with the government. And also her personal life wasn't easy. Her husband, duke Hendrik van Mecklenburg-Schwerin (Vic de Wachter) committed adultery. Queen Mother Emma tells her daughter to accept her fate in favour of the monarchy. Wilhelmina doesn't want to reign anymore just before the second world war starts. Her personal secretary and confidant François van 't Sant, who has a intriguing role in all her decisions, can convince her to stay on the thrown. Wilhelmina becomes the Mother of the Nation during the war. She abdicates in 1948 when the nation chooses for the pre war politics in 1946 and not for a new modern polity; tired of the struggle and heavily disappointed.
