When you see the beautiful cover of Orange Princess Adrift by Maarten-Jan Dongelmans, you want to know who the woman on the cover is, although many people will immediately know who the woman on the cover is.

Towards the end of the book, the title becomes clear and you can only conclude that it is a very well-chosen title. The subtitle speaks for itself, you immediately know who the book is about, but it can be imagined that when reading the name, there will be people who will think of Princess Beatrix's grandmother when reading the name.

Orange princess adrift by Maarten-Jan Dongelmans tells Wilhelmina of Prussia's life story.
