Becoming a Queen in Europe ~ The Dutch "Enthrone" Queens, While the British "Crown" Queens



Did you know... 
The Dutch "Enthrone" Queens, but the British "Crown" their Queens?  

   An odd bit of trivia, to be sure. But as I have an affinity for Dutch silver designs, I thought I'd mention it after seeing this rare photo.  It was taken in 1895 of the young Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands and Queen Victoria of Great Britain. At the time, they were the only female monarchs in Europe.
