Re: Queen Wilhelmina
Wilhelmina became queen on the death of her father in 1890, when she was just 10 years old. Had she reigned until her own death in 1962, she would have had the throne for 58 years, years shorter than queen Elizabeth II...
How long would her reign have been, had she not abdicated the Dutch throne in favor of her daughter, Queen Juliana? Would it have been longer or shorter than that of the famous "Sun" King Louis XIV of France? I heard that Her Majesty the British queen has recently surpassed the record of the late King Bhumidol of Thailand, for the second longest-reign in world royal history.
