Dutch monarchs family tree
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a family tree for the Princes of Orange, a line which culminated in the Dutch monarchy with the accession of Prince William VI to the newly created throne of the Netherlands in 1815. Dates given are those of birth and death; for Princes of Orange (shown in bold), the intermediate date is the date of accession to the Princedom. By virtue of his marriage to Mary II of England, Prince William III, himself a grandson of Charles I of England, became King of England 1689–1702 (jointly with Mary II until her death in 1694) following the overthrow of his uncle and father-in-law James II of England in the Glorious Revolution. The family lineage is of note as John William Friso is the most recent common ancestor of all the current monarchs of Europe.

Commissioned work of my queen, the queen of Holland.
Painted in order of a German politician and art collector of royalties.
I had to do it in classic realism. The classic Dutch masters are long gone
and i cannot compete with them on their specialism of course.
The format had to be 50 x 60 cm. Not my favorite dimensions. ( glasses and little brushes )
I did the best i could. i hope you love it.

His Royal Highness Friso van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg, Prince of Orange-Nassau, Count of Orange-Nassau, Jonkheer van Amsberg (Johan Friso Bernhard Christiaan David van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg; born 25 September 1968) is the second son of Queen Beatrix and the late Prince Claus of the Netherlands. Prince Friso is a member of the Dutch Royal Family, but because of his marriage in 2004 he is no longer a member of the Dutch Royal House nor in line of succession to the Dutch throne. He is still in the line of succession to the thrones of the Commonwealth realms.
On 17 February 2012, Prince Friso was buried under an avalanche in Lech, Austria, while skiing off piste. He was taken to a hospital in Innsbruck where he was in critical but stable condition. According to his doctor, Dr. Wolfgang Koller, even though he was trapped for a relatively short time and hopes had originally been higher, subsequent neurological tests showed that after fifty minutes of reanimation in moderate hypothermia he suffered massive brain damage due to oxygen shortage. It remains unclear whether he will ever regain consciousness and come out of his deeply comatose state, and even if he does, he could still be in a (perhaps permanent) vegetative state.

 Early life, education and workPrince Friso was born in Utrecht as the second son of Queen Beatrix and the late Prince Claus of the Netherlands. His godparents are King Harald V of Norway, Johan Christian Baron von Jenisch, J.H. van Roijen, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands and Christina von Amsberg. He has one elder brother, Willem-Alexander, Prince of Orange and one younger brother, Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands.
In 1988, he studied mechanical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, where he joined Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. From 1988 to 1994 he studied at Delft University of Technology, where he obtained an engineer’s degree in aeronautical engineering. Additionally, he has an MSc degree in economics from Erasmus University Rotterdam. To prepare himself for the possibility of succession to the throne, he took courses in Dutch law and parliamentary history.
Prince Friso worked from 1995 until 1996 at the Amsterdam branch of the international management consultancy McKinsey. After completing an MBA-programme at INSEAD, Prince Friso worked as vice president from 1998 till 2003 for Goldman Sachs International in London. Since 2004 he is part-time co-president of TNO Space in Delft. As of October 2006, Prince Friso is Managing Director in the London office of the private investment and advisory firm Wolfensohn & Co (founded by James Wolfensohn, former President of the World Bank).
Prince Friso is a co-founder of the MRI Centre in Amsterdam and is also a founding shareholder of Wizzair, the largest low-cost airline in Eastern Europe. Prince Friso is honorary chairman of the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development (a position he holds together with his younger brother Prince Constantijn). The Prince also serves as a director and supervisory director of various companies.
Prior to his accident, Prince Friso was working as a Chief Financial Officer for URENCO, a uranium enrichment company that has its main offices in Stoke Poges, Berkshire, UK, and plants in the Netherlands, Germany, Capenhurst, UK, and New Mexico in the US. Prince Friso was taking care of all four plants.
 Marriage and children
Prince Friso with his wife Mabel and daughters (2010)On 30 June 2003, it was announced that Prince Friso was to marry Mabel Wisse Smit. The Dutch cabinet, however, did not seek the permission of parliament for this marriage; constitutionally necessary if Prince Friso was to remain a member of the Dutch Royal House and in line of the hereditary succession for the throne (he had been second in this line of succession, after his older brother, Crown Prince Willem Alexander).
The Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende explained that this was due to discussions with Mabel Wisse Smit in October 2003 where she had admitted that her previous statements about an alleged relationship with Klaas Bruinsma (1953–1991), known as a Godfather of the Dutch drug trade, had not been complete and accurate. She had previously stated that she had contact for a few months with Bruinsma, but in a casual context, not intimate or relating to business and that she had broken the contact on learning of Bruinsma’s occupation.
This “breach of trust” was the reason the government did not seek parliament’s permission, respecting the wishes of the couple. They nevertheless married in Delft on 24 April 2004, and Mabel Wisse Smit became a member of the Dutch Royal Family but not a member of the Dutch Royal House.
Considering that his elder brother, Prince Willem-Alexander is heir apparent to the Dutch throne, and has three children, Prince Friso’s exclusion from the succession is unlikely to have an effect on the monarchy in the Netherlands.
Prince Friso and his wife Princess Mabel have two daughters:
Countess Emma Luana Ninette Sophie, Jonkvrouwe van Amsberg (born 26 March 2005 in London)
Countess Joanna Zaria Nicoline Milou, Jonkvrouwe van Amsberg (born 18 June 2006 in London)
 Avalanche accidentOn 17 February 2012, Prince Friso was buried under an avalanche in Lech, Austria, and he was taken to a hospital in Innsbruck. According to a formal statement of the Netherlands Government Information Service (RVD), a prognosis can only be given after some days. The prince’s condition was described as “stable, but critical”.
The Dutch royal family issued a statement on 19 February saying “The Royal Family is very grateful and deeply touched by all expressions of support and sympathy after the ski accident of His Royal Highness Prince Friso. It was a great support for them during this difficult time.”
A prognosis on his health situation was expected within a few days, but this was pushed back to Friday 24 February, a week after his accident. The RVD’s comment remained the same: stable, but critical. On 24 February, an Innsbruck medical team announced that the prince had been buried for 25 minutes, followed by a 50-minute CPR to treat his cardiac arrest. Dr. Wolfgang Koller stated that an MRI was performed a day earlier revealing little change, however other neurological tests indicated significant damage due to oxygen shortage. It remains unclear whether the prince will ever regain consciousness. Koller said that the prince’s family may now look for a rehabilitation institution. On the same day the Dutch royal family issued a statement requesting that the privacy of the prince’s family be respected to enable them to come to terms with his condition.
On 1 March 2012, Prince Friso was transferred to the Wellington Hospital in London, the city where he and his wife have lived for many years.
On 19 November 2012 it was announced that the prince has started to show some signs of consciousness but it is still not certain whether he will wake up, and if so, in what kind of state.

Royal MonogramHis Royal Highness Prince Johan-Friso of the Netherlands, Prince of Orange-Nassau, Jonkheer van Amsberg (1968–2004)
His Royal Highness Prince Friso of Orange-Nassau, Count of Orange-Nassau, Jonkheer van Amsberg (2004–present)
Under the Act on the Membership of the Royal House (2002), Prince Friso lost the title ‘Prince of the Netherlands’ and the hereditary title ‘Prince of Orange-Nassau’ by entering into a marriage without an Act of Consent.
By Royal Decree of 19 March 2004, nr. 126 the Prince was granted the surname ‘Van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg’ and the hereditary title ‘Count of Orange-Nassau’ to take effect upon his marriage.
By the same Royal Decree the Prince was allowed to continue his title ‘Prince of Orange-Nassau’ as a personal and non-hereditary title and the style of Royal Highness. Any children born to the couple will receive the surname ‘Van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg’ and become a ‘Count (Countess) of Orange-Nassau’ and also have the noble predicate ‘Jonkheer (Jonkvrouw) van Amsberg’. His wife will acquire the feminine form of his husband style and titles as courtesy title, since it is customary for wives of members of the royal family to take the titles of their husbands.
Albeit losing the title “Prince of the Netherlands” and the accompanying royal style, Prince Friso will continue to be styled His Royal Highness.
Referred to from birth as Prince Johan-Friso, in 2004 the royal court announced that he requested his first name to be simply “Friso” without the prefix “Johan”.

“Heilwig van Rode ?” The Niece of Godfrey de Bouillon
(Images: Scotish Princess, Oda of Rodes. Godfrey de Bouillon. Arnold
of Cleves. Swan Knight. Flag of Odenrode)
Ida of Boulogne was the sister of Godfrey de Boulogne. She married
Herman of Malsen van Cuijk/Cuyck. Their daughter, Heilwig, married
Arnold van Rode, thus the niece of Godfrey Bouillon was a van
Rode/Roesmont. Ida’s mother was Ida of Lorraine. The name Ida may
have come from Saint Oda a Scotish Princess who came to Holland. The
Rode family appear to have taken their name from the town and church
they built for this princess, Saint Odenrode. Rode means clearing in
a forest. An elevated place within this glade would be a mound, thus
the name, Rodemound.
“huwelijk (van Rode-van Cuijk):”
Godfrey de Bouillon was titled `Duke of Lorraine’. The Dukes of
Lorraine descend from Ragnar the Viking and are close kin to the
Dukes of Brabant, if not the same family, thus the crossbeams in the
Cross of Lorraine?
There are about a dozen Ida or Oda names that may have been taken
from Saint Oda of Scotland. Robert de Bruce descends from Ida of
Louvain. Maud of Louvain married Count Eustace of Bouillon, and thus
is the great grandmother of Heilwig Roesmont.whose Roesmont
descendant may have carried on her name and that of her husband,
Arnold van Rode.
“Heilwigis Arnoldi Danielis ROESMONT [Parents] married Arnoldus
VAN DER POIRTEN, Arnoldus Rover “
There is a line of Arnold van Kleef (Cleves). Were they the
progenitors the Countess of Cleves throws in the face of Elsa of
Brabant the wife of Hylas, the Swan Knight, only to have him reveal
his own Arnolds? Could they be the same?
Beatrice de Bar married Geofrey the Duke of Lorraine. Beatrice if a
Ferrette who owned Rougemont castle. Here is where the genealogical
search for the source of the Rosamond name, ends, for they belong to
the same family that begot Godfrey de Bouillon, a co-founder of the
Knight Templars, and perhaps the first king of Jerusalem whose large
portrait hung over my late sister’s mantle, she the world famous
I suspect Saint Oda may have originally been a Queen of the Frisians
who born a liniage of Roses, and the Lords of Rode. That Godfrey’s
sister, Ida, is disappeared from most geneaologies, along with his
niece Heilwig van Rode, tells me there is a REAL ROSE LINE that could
have been revelead by the Swan Knight.
“The Swan Knight’s adventures bring him to the defense of the
dispossessed Duchess of Bouillon, whose land has been seized by
Regnier (Ragnar) of Saxony, whom he challenges to a duel. The Swan
Knight defeats Regnier and wins the daughter of the Duchess in
marriage. They have a daughter, Ida, who can see the future and knows
that she is destined to be the mother of Eustace, Godfrey, and
On May 9, 2006 I posted on Atland, the Frisian Atlantis. The Frisians
were ruled by Rosamond, the Earth Goddess Mother. Was her mythical
being based on Saint Odarode?
This post is my capstone. Like a blind man I have been groping in the
dark, moving forward, and never wavering. I came to touch the statue
of Oda the blind saint, and all is revealed, all I have written made
clear in what can surely be titled `The Prophecy of Rhodemond’.
Consider the name of Rhodos’s father and the name of the Swan Knight,
RHODOS (Rhodos), was, according to Diodorus (v. 55), a daughter of
Poseidon and Halia, and sometimes called Rhode.
Now, with sword in hand, and the flag of Oedenrode, I come to Carmel.
And kick down the door of the Rosamond gallery, and claim it in the
name of my Rode family; for no sooner was my artistic sister dead,
did the parasites get rid of the surviving artist in the family.
Within twenty four hours, we were gone, and the feeding frenzy of the
un-gifted ones began.
As the Red Knight of the Lords of Rode, who were close kin to
Godfrey, I challenge my powerfyll foes, bid them to come out of their
dark hiding place, and face me like a man.
I have recovered my child and grandchild in my recent trip to Santa
Rosa. “All’s well, that ends well.”

The Claddagh Ring: Symbol of the Ten Sefirot of the Kabbalah
The original origin of the Swan Knights go back to the descendants of Mar St Joseph of Arimathea in Ireland and Scotland and the legend of the four children of King Raphael Lear (Lir) the Rosh Galuta Scotia (a descendant of Joseph’s grandson Nathan the Red), who were turned into swans by their stepmother Aoife (Eva). The grandfather of the four swans is called Barbur (Swan in Hebrew) the Red and one variant is Bodb Dearg. Barbur the Red (Solomon Barbur ha Katzin) was the brother of Angus (also called Eochaidh and Eoghan) who in one tale also becomes a swan. This family were Guardians of the Grail (called the magic Cauldron in the paganised version) and the Spear of Longinus. Barbur the Red is the original founder of the order of the Swan Knights. The mother of Barbur was Boann wife of Nathan (Nectan/ Nuada) from which the surname Bohon (Bohun) originates. The name Boann then became associated as a title connected with the Swan Knights and their descendants and was interpreted as master or captain and thus became Katzin in the Jewish descendants of the Swan Knights (Barbur ha Katzin). The Bohun family claimed descent from the Swan Knight called Lohengrin in Germany. Lohen grin or Bohen Garin (Warin/Aaron) was a Davidic Royal Prince (Mar Aaron Hen Tzvi Barzillai ben Mar Eliyahu) whose family came from the Exilarch Family of Babylon to Spain. His son Solomon Barbur bar Hen Tzvi (Humphrey cum Barba) was the founder of the Bohun family of England who came with his relative William the Conqueror to England. The title of Barbur (swan) became confused with ‘barba’ for beard as Humphrey retained his Jewish beard in a time when many were clean shaven. Hen Tzvi means a graceful deer or antelope which along with the Swan became the chief heraldic emblems of the Bohun family. The genealogies and histories refer to Humphrey’s father as Henry or Humphrey Mari (Mar Aaron Hen Tzvi) son of Richard Mari (Mar Eliyahu). This is a normanisation of their Davidic title of Mar as descendants of the Babylonian Exilarchs. The Kassin family descend from Lohengrin’s son called Solomon Barbur ha Katzin who is the ancestor of the Kassin family of France and Spain. Barbur ha Katzin is the title translated as Swan Knight. He was the brother of Elias (Mar Eliyahu) Count of Maine also called Helias the Swan Knight the grandfather of Geoffrey Plantagenet

The Rose Amongst Thorns
The Rose Line of the Swan Brotherhood
(Images: Swan House. Swan Brethren emblem showing rose amongst
thorns. Virgin Mary as Rose of the Canticle of Canticals. Beakers on
Swan coat of arms. Swan Brethren plates with rose and thorns coat of
The emblem worn by the Swan Brethren depicts a a rose, or lily,
amongst thorns. At the root of the rose is the Latin word SICUT which
is the first word from a line from Song of Songs.
2:2. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
Sicut lilium inter spinas sic amica mea inter filias
On the façade of the Swan Brethren House are four statues, effigies
of Prince William 1 of Orange, Ghisbertus van der Poorten, Gerardus
of Uden, and Earl Floris van Egmond van Buren. Gerardus is the knight
with the shield. Ghisbertus may be second from the right. I have
every reason to believe Ghisbertus is Ghisbertus Roesmont son of
Danielis Roesmont, a Swan Brethren, and Adriana Theodorici Rover.
Heilwigis Arnoldi Danielis Roesmont married Arnoldus Rover Van der
Poirten, or Poorten, meaning “of the port”. Ghisbertus sat in
the “ships chair” which I assume means he was `Captain of the Port’.
Because he was the Master of Janskerk Church, which was allied with
the Swan Brethren, I believe it was Gisbertus Roesmont who gifted the
house of the brotherhood in 1483, and thus is one of the four statues
put on the Zwanenbroedershuis.
The Swan Brotherhood dined once a year on roasted swan. They ate from
plates with their coat of arms upon them, and the word “Sicut” The
Swan Brotherhood commissioned one of their members, Hieronymus Bosch,
to depict the Wedding at Cana where Jesus and his mother were
present. The words “Sicut lilium inter spinas ” are associated with
the Virgin Mother and the Canticle of Canticles. It appears that the
Swan Brethren have created a Last Supper worship around Mary, who is
titled the Rose of the World, or, Rosa Mundi. The Brotherhood
incorporated the Genealogy of Jesse of the House of David in their
worship which suggests they may be honoring a Davidic lineage that
was present at the wedding in Cana, and perhaps managed to stay
together after the fall of the temple. Did they migrate to Holland?
There is a Jewish line of the Van der Poorten family.
The Swan Brotherhood also drank from a cup, or beaker, called
a “drinkkannen” or “drinkbeker” These beakers were owned by the
members and had their coat of arms upon them. Ghisbertus and Danielis
Roesmont were Swan Brethren, thus these beakers are the Rosemont
families Holy Grail, the third one I have found. It appears these
beakers enjoined the owner with the cup that Jesus drank from at the
wedding of one of his kinfolk. Here is a supper where a Holy Bond is
made between members of the Holy Family. This Holy Family associates
itself with a Lily, or Rose, and thus to wear the emblem of Swan
Brethren is to be joined to the Holy Rose Tree where you are seen as
a budding rose amongst the thorns. Here is where my genealogical
search for my Rose liniage ends, where it began. In the images above
we see the symbols and Biblical passages that were applied to the
Virgin Mary that come from the Canticle of Canticles.
Today, Good Friday, I drink from my Rosamond families lost cup. I put
down this cup and name the man who betrayed me and his family. My
older brother, Mark Broderick Presco hated me from the very day he
first lay eyes on me. He corrupted my sisters, and in a dark covert
manner rested the artistic legacy of Christine Rosamond from the
adult Heir because he feared the truth would come out that he did not
pay his taxes, encouraged Christine not to pay taxes, and used
Rosamond’s beautiful images of women as a illegal tax right-off. This
dark hateful misogynist disowned his son, his only child, and kept
from me the whereabout of my minor child when she disappeared. No
brother has ever known such a brother who spat on the words and very
meaning of Loyalty and Trust. Always lurking in the back ground, he
smirked as he undermined all the members of his family because he is
a Narcsistic psychopath who loathes women, his only child, his father
and mother, God, and his only brother.
It is time to cross the River and awaken the sleeping Kingdom of
Roermond, and all the forsaken memory stored within.
Prince Willem-Alexander, Prince of Orange is a member of the Swan
Brethren, as was his mother, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. Prince
Willem is kin to Floris Egmond van Buren one of the statues of Swan
House, and the 8th. President of the United States, Martin van Buren.
Willem ran the New York Marithon using the name of his van Buren
ancestors who knew, or knew of, the Roesmonts.
Willem forfeited by law his succession to the British throne when he
married a Catholic. Did he marry a Catholic in order to end the split
between the Protestant and Catholics who had members amongst the Swan
Brethren? The Protestants hated the worship of Mary, born of the lily
and rose. However, with new information about Mary being Sophia, the
Goddess of Knowledge, there might be newfound Unity, a mending of a
great religious rent. With the rise of the Roza Mira Prophecy in
Russia, and my theory that King Cyrus wrote Song of Songs, one can
begin to see the world religions are Rosebuds on the same Divine Tree.
Canticle of Canticles Chapter
2Christ caresses his spouse: he invites her to him.
2:1. I am the flower of the field, and the lily of the valleys.* Ego

my love among the daughters. Sicut lilium inter spinas sic amica mea
