Prince Consort of the Netherlands Hendrik (circa 1910s)


Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin by birth, and later prince consort of the Netherlands as the husband of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands. He was the longest serving consort of the Netherlands.

He was the youngest son of Friedrich Franz II, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, and his third wife, Princess Marie of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt.

He was created Prince of the Netherlands on 6 February 1901, and married Queen Wilhelmina on 7 February 1901, in The Hague. Although the queen was devoted to her spouse at the time of their marriage, it proved in the long run to be an unhappy union that did little more than meet its obligation by producing an heir. They had one child, Juliana, in whose favour her mother abdicated on 4 September 1948.

Prince Hendrik was known to have had numerous extra-marital affairs, at least one of which resulted in illegitimate offspring.

He died, at the age of 58, on 3 July 1934 in The Hague, Netherlands.
