The Dutch queen Wilhelmina was born on this day, April 27, back in the year 1885 and it was in her honor that the day was named, ‘koninginnedag’ or ‘queen’s day’. Now, things changed a bit in the year 1949 following the ascendancy to the throne of Juliana, who was her daughter, who also wanted to have the day reflect her birthday and as such she changed the date to the 30th day of April. When the princess Beatrix later on became queen, she kept the tradition ongoing as it was set by the queen Juliana before her. However in the year 2014, there was seen yet one latest change that came to the honor of the day in which it was then changed and referred to as King’s Day. Some of the other changes that were effected in the marking of the day saw the date as well restored to the date 27th of April which as well happens to be the king’s birthday.
Orange is the color of the day and it is the one that is considered the theme color for all attending the festivity. Looking at the color choice, you need to know of the fact that this is as well settled for as an expression or show of honor to the heritage of the Dutch Royalty.
These festivities are marked even to the Nightclubs in Amsterdam and as a matter of fact, you may consider checking them out. Consider buying your Amsterdam Nightlife tickets at prices as low as $10 and get access to some of the greatest of the party clubs in the city.
