Wilhelmina of the Netherlands
(Wilhelmina Helena Pauline Maria; 31 August 1880 in Hague– 28 November 1962 in Apeldoorn) was Queen of the Kingdom of the Netherlands from 1890 to 1948. She reigned for nearly 58 years, longer than any other Dutch monarch. Her reign saw World War I and World War II, the economic crisis of 1933, and the decline of the Netherlands as a major colonial power. Outside the Netherlands she is primarily remembered for her role in World War II, in which she proved to be a great inspiration to the Dutch resistance.
