I Didn’t Realize…

It was the first time a King rode in the Gouden Koets [Golden Carriage]. This carriage was built for the inauguration of Queen Wilhelmina in 1898, and after her we had Queen Juliana [since 1948] and Queen Beatrix since 1980.

King William I, II and III rode on a horse towards the houses of Parliament. kng William III died in November 1890 when his only living child, Wilhelmina, was just 10 years old. Her mother, queen Emma, ruled as regent until her daughter was 18.
