Collectors Focus Today: Queen Wilhemina of Netherlands Stamp

Queen Wilhelmina ruled the Netherlands from 1890 to 1948, 

for fifty-eight years, longer than any other Dutch monarch. 

Her reign saw World War I and World War II, the economic

crisis of 1933, and the decline of the Netherlands as a major 

colonial empire. Outside the Netherlands she is primarily 

remembered for her role in World War II, in which she 

proved to be a great inspiration to the Dutch resistance.
