Hellinga/Aalders - History of Orange - Canon of our Royal House
All descendants of the Orange-Nassau dynasty will be listed in this book "History of Orange" all put against the timeline they lived in. Stadholders, kings, fortune-hunters, freedom-fighters and true statesmen. But also the muddlers, money wasters, conspirators and charlatans. They established the history of our country, and sometimes the whole of Europe as well, in times of war and peace, welfare and crisis. King William II and his wife Anna Pavlona lost their enormous fortune because of their way of spending money. Also William of Orange, once the richest nobleman of the lowlands, only had debts after he died. Stadholders Maurits, Frederik Hendrik and William II attempted a coup all in their own way. Stadholder William III was obsessed by his war against Louis XIV. And if William I have had more sense, perhaps, Belgium and The Netherlands would still be one state. Bribes, entanglements and complete illegitimate families. All in all an fascinating journey through time with more than 50 historical royalty portraits. From the parents of William of Orange to Amalia. Fully illustrated in colour, not to be missed by any royalty fan. Revised edition, hardback, 208 pages, in Dutch
