Beatrix (Wilhelmina Armgard)

Beatrix (Wilhelmina Armgard)
born Jan. 31, 1938, Soestdijk, Neth.

Queen of The Netherlands.

Beatrix went into exile with her family when the Germans invaded The Netherlands in World War II, and she spent the war years in Britain and Canada. In 1965 her betrothal to a German diplomat sparked controversy because of his past membership in the Hitler Youth and the German army. They were married in 1966, and the hostility waned with the births of the first male heirs in the house of Orange since 1890. Beatrix became queen in 1980 after the abdication of her mother, Juliana.
