Prince Consort of the Netherlands Claus

German-Dutch aristocrat and consort to Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands from Beatrix's ascension in 1980 until his death in 2002. When they married on 10 March 1966, people were shocked because he was a German who had been a young boy in the Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth). There were demonstrations and smoke bombs, though he was only 19 when the war ended and had done no more than any teenage boy. As a Dutch citizen he gained respect for his kindness and social consciousness and for organizing aid to the needy. He and Beatrix made a respectable couple as national rulers; they had three sons. Since the mid-1980s, he had Parkinson's, the "stiff" version, from which he died, also from heart and respiratory ailments, on 6 October 2002 at age 76 in Amsterdam.
