Beautiful plaster portrait bust of Wilhelmina.
Marble sculpture with a decorated marble base and bronze pearls.
Wilhelmina Helena Pauline Maria (The Hague, 31st August 1880 - Apeldoorn, 28th November 1962), Princess of the Netherlands (1880-1890, 1948-1962), Princess of Orange-Nassau and Duchess of Mecklenburg (1901-1962), was Queen of the Netherlands from 23rd November 1890 till 4th September 1948 and ruled under the name Wilhelmina. She married her second cousin Henry van Mecklenburg-Schwerin. One daughter was born from this marriage: Juliana.
Wilhelmina was the only child of King Willem III of the Netherlands and Queen Emma. From 1890 until her eighteenth birthday in 1898 her mother was Regent. During WWII she fled to England. Due to health problems of Wilhelmina, crown princess Juliana was regent for a total of 157 days in 1947 and 1948. Wilhelmina officially resigned her kingship in her 58th year on the throne; she actually reigned a little short of 50 years. Despite this, she is by far the longest serving Dutch head of State ever.
