The Kingdom of the Netherlands was ruled by Queen Wilhelmina I from 1890-1948. Wilhelmina became Queen of the Netherlands after the King's death in 1890. Queen Wilhelmina ruled the Netherlands for over fifty years, longer than any other Dutch monarch.
Her reign saw many turning points in both Dutch and world history: World War I, and World War II, and the Great Crisis of 1933. She is mostly remembered for her role in the Second World War, in which she would prove to be a great inspiration to the Dutch resistance, as well as a prominent leader of the Dutch government, which was in exile.
