Wilhelmina (Wilhelmina Helena Pauline Maria)(31 August 1880 – 28 November 1962) was Queen of the Netherlands from 1890 until her abdication in 1948. She reigned for nearly 58 years, longer than any other Dutch monarch.The only child of King William III of the Netherlands and Emma of Waldeck and Pyrmont, Wilhelmina ascended to the throne at the age of 10 after her father's death in 1890, under her mother's regency.On 7 February 1901 in The Hague, Queen Wilhelmina married Duke Heinrich of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (whose name would be Dutchified to Prins Hendrik. Although she was devoted to her spouse at the time of their wedding, it proved in the long run to be an unhappy marriage that did little more than meet its obligation by producing an heir. Besides several miscarriages the couple had 1 surviving child: Princess Juliana, who would succeed her mother

Willem I (Willem Frederik, Prince of Orange-Nassau)(24 August 1772 – 12 December 1843) was a Prince of Orange and the third King of the Netherlands and Grand Duke of Luxembourg. He was the ruler of the Principality of Nassau-Orange-Fulda from 1803 until 1806 and of the Principality of Orange-Nassau in the year 1806 and from 1813 until 1815. In 1813 he proclaimed himself Sovereign Prince of the United Netherlands. He proclaimed himself King of the Netherlands and Duke of Luxembourg on 16 March 1815. In the same year on 9 June Willem I became also the Grand Duke of Luxembourg and after 1839 he was furthermore the Duke of Limburg. After his abdication in 1840 he styled himself King William Frederick, Count of Nassau. On 1 October 1791, he married his cousin princess Wilhelmine of Prussia, with whom he had 6 children. Later in life Willem I wanted to marry  the Catholic Countess Henriëtte, who had been a lady-in-waiting to his first wife, the late Queen consort Wilhelmine (1774-1837). The resistance was so great—Henriëtte was Catholic and a native of Belgium, which had seceded from the Netherlands—that William decided to abdicate in favour of his son Willem II on 7 October 1840. After abdication, he styled himself King Willem Frederick , Count of Nassau. He married Henriëtte on 17 February 1841; he was 71 years old at the time, she was 47, and the couple would have no children.She had received the Dutch title, Countess of Nassau on 7 February 1841.

Willem I, Prince of Orange (24 April 1533 – 10 July 1584), also known as Willem the Silent or Willem the Taciturn (translated from Dutch: Willem de Zwijger), or more commonly known as Willem of Orange (Dutch: Willem van Oranje), was the main leader of the Dutch Revolt against the Spanish Habsburgs that set off the Eighty Years' War (1568–1648) and resulted in the formal independence of the United Provinces in 1581. He was born into the House of Nassau as Count of Nassau-Dillenburg. He became Prince of Orange in 1544 and is thereby the founder of the Orange-Nassau branch and the ancestor of the monarchy of the Netherlands. In the Netherlands, he is also known as Father of the Fatherland (Dutch: Vader des Vaderlands).On 6 July 1551, the 18-year-old Willem  married Anna van Egmond en Buren, aged 18 and the wealthy heiress to the lands of her father. Willem thus gained the titles Lord of Egmond and Count of Buren. The couple had a happy marriage and became the parents of three children together. On 25 August 1561, Willem of Orange married for the second time. His new wife, Anna of Saxony, was tumultuous, and it is generally assumed that William married her to gain more influence in Saxony, Hesse and the Palatinate. The couple had two sons and three daughters.Anna died after Willem renounced her and her own family imprisoned her in one of their castles. The cause was due to the accusation that she committed adultery with the lawyer Jan Rubens, and became pregnant by him, giving birth to a daughter. Before her death Willem had already announced his third marriage, which drew the disapproval of her family who argued that, despite the adultery, the two were still married. Willem married for the third time on 24 April 1575 to Charlotte de Bourbon-Monpensier, a former French nun, who was also popular with the public. They had six daughters. The marriage, which seems to have been a love match on both sides, was happy. Charlotte allegedly died from exhaustion while trying to nurse her husband after an assassination attempt in 1582. Willem married for the fourth and final time on 12 April 1583 to Louise de Coligny, a French Huguenot and daughter of Gaspard de Coligny. She was to be the mother of Frederik Hendrik (1584–1647), Willem's fourth legitimate son and fifteenth legitimate child. This youngest of Willem's children, who was born only a few months before Willem's death, was to be the only one of his sons to bear children and carry the dynasty forward. Willem was assassinated by the Burgundian Catholic Balthasar Gérard

The suggestion was made to give these manhole covers a place "in the village or town square". Almost all municipalities have received the manhole cover and given it a place near their town hall, so that the cover vane can be found in a central location.

William III (William Henry; Dutch: Willem Hendrik)(4 November 1650 – 8 March 1702), also widely known as William of Orange, was sovereign Prince of Orange from birth, Stadtholder of Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Guelders (Gelderland) and Overijssel in the Dutch Republic from the 1670s and King of England, Ireland and Scotland from 1689 until his death. Popular histories usually refer to his joint reign with his wife, Queen Mary II, as that of William and Mary. As King of Scotland, he is known as William II.[3] He is sometimes informally known as "King Billy" in Ireland and Scotland. William was the only child of Willem II, Prince of Orange, who died a week before his birth, and Mary, Princess of Orange, the daughter of King Charles I of England. In 1677, during the reign of his uncle King Charles II of England, he married his cousin Mary, the fifteen-year-old daughter of Charles II's brother James, Duke of York. The couple had no children. He was the last patrilineal descendant of William I to be named stadtholder for the majority of the provinces.Under William III's will, John William Friso stood to inherit the Principality of Orange as well as several lordships in the Netherlands. He was William's closest agnatic relative, as well as grandson of William's aunt Henriette Catherine. However, King Frederick I of Prussia also claimed the Principality as the senior cognatic heir, his mother Louise Henriette being Henriette Catherine's older sister. Under the Treaty of Utrecht (1713), Frederick I's successor, Frederick William I of Prussia, ceded his territorial claim to King Louis XIV of France, keeping only a claim to the title. Friso's posthumous son, Willem IV, succeeded to the title at his birth in 1711; in the Treaty of Partition (1732) he agreed to share the title "Prince of Orange" with Frederick William.

Wow Principessa!  You have been busy  Star

That was a fascinating trip through Dutch royal history. Random thoughts:

I see a lot of Emma in Wax. I guess those genes are strong!

The statue at Epe really looked like heads on a pike to me, although I do love the sentiment

Where are all of these people resting?  Are they in one place or all over?

Thank you so much for all this!

Willem of Orange, who was assassinated in Delft has a large monument. The others are burried in the royal crypt. But not every Dutch royal wants / decides to be burried here.

The royal crypt in the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft:


A scale model of the crypt:

Wikiwand page about the crypt: https://www.wikiwand.com/...fkelder_van_Oranje-Nassau


monument Willem of Orange in the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft:



In the same church you will also find some other royal memorials, a.o.:
- cenotaph  of Princess Pauline of Orange-Nassau (Wilhelmina Frederika Louise Pauline Charlotte)(1 March 1800 – 22 December 1806). Pauline was born in Berlin while her parents were living in exile during the time the Low Countries were occupied by France. She was the third child and first-born daughter of the later King William I of the Netherlands and his wife, Wilhelmine of Prussia. Her two older brothers were the future King William II and Prince Frederick of the Netherlands. Her parents had another, stillborn, child in 1795. Her younger sister, Marianne, was born four years after her death.  From birth, she had poor health, probably due to the difficult circumstances during her mother's pregnancy. According to doctors, she suffered from some kind of nervous fever. Due to bad weather while fleeing Berlin (to escape French troops) , Pauline's health quickly declined. On 15 December 1806 her condition became alarming; she died a week later, on 22 December. Her mother could hardly be separated from her deathbed and there were fears for her sanity. Pauline was  buried on the Freienwalde estate  in Brandenburg, Germany. A monument by sculptor Johann Gottfried Schadow was put in place only in 1813. The neglected grave was rediscovered by the new owner of Freienwalde, Walther Rathenau in 1909. He discovered a weathered gravestone on the estate, inscribed with Pauline's name. The news was immediately reported to Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, who had the remains exhumed. Without much pomp Pauline's remains were brought to the Netherlands by the Dutch ambassador in Berlin, Baron Gevers, and the chamberlain Van den Bosch in March 1911. During this trip, the bronze casket was placed with the luggage. On 7 April 1911 Pauline's remains finally were interred in the Royal Crypt in the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft. The text of her gravestone reads: "Grabmal of Friderike Louise Pauline Charlotte Wilhelmine Prinzessin von Nassau und Oranien - Born zu Berlin den 1 Maerz 1800 - died zu Freienwalde 22d Dezember 1806"

- Cenotaph of Frederik, Prince of Orange (Willem George Frederik) (15 February 1774 – 6 January 1799) He was the youngest son of Willem V, Prince of Orange and Stadtholder of the Dutch Republic and Princess Wilhelmina of Prussia.  Commonly called Fritz inside the family, he chose a military career with the Holy Roman Empire, he died of a fever while serving in Padua, Italy.
