Amsterdam, Netherlands

In the Netherlands, today is Konigsdag, or King's Day. The tradition of giving the Dutch people a holiday on a royal birthday began in 1885 when Princess Wilhelmina, seen here as Queen Wilhelmina, celebrated her 5th birthday (though not on April 27). Wilhelmina is especially remembered for her inspiration during World War II. [2015]
