The Netherlands[]

The Kingdom of the Netherlands, often referred to simply as "Holland," has, under the influence of many ambitious empires, grown from a minor province of northern Europe into one of the world's premier trade centers. Beginning with the conquests of the Romans, the later rise of the Franks, and eventually the Holy Roman Empire, the Netherlands became a frequent target of expanding European kingdoms. However, none would leave a greater mark than the Spanish Habsburgs, whose persecution of Dutch Protestants under King Philip contributed directly to the outbreak of the Eighty Years' War. Pitting the Dutch citizenry against their Spanish masters in a near-century long conflict for independence, once free of Spanish rule, the people of the Netherlands worked tirelessly to establish their own national identity. As the new republic grew to become a leading economic power, many great cultural and scientific figures rose from the newly formed nation.


For as long as she could speak, Wilhelmina only ever knew a life where she was (or would become) Queen of the Netherlands. The longest reigning Dutch monarch led her people through tumultuous times—the dawn of the 20th Century, the economic collapse of the 1930s, and both World Wars. She did so with dignity and aplomb, unquestionably committed to the principles of Dutch sovereignty.

Dawn of Man[]

"Flags of orange wave to honour you, O' stalwart Queen Wilhelmina. Succeeding to the throne of your father in 1890, you would take upon the role of Dutch monarch with cunning and passion. Although negotiating Dutch neutrality in the face of World War One and overseeing the economic turmoils of the 1930s, it was your fiery resistance to the Nazi invasion of 1940 that would be your most enduring legacy. In exile, you took to the airwaves to rally your country's resistance, inspiring loyalty and hope in the face of evil. By the end of your impressive fifty-eight years on the throne, the national pride of the Dutch people would be cemented in history.

The Dutch people call upon you now, Queen Wilhelmina. The evils of the world once more instil in them a fear for the future. Can you give voice to a trodden nation? Can you rally the hearts of your people to resist hopelessness and defeat? Can you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Salutations, great and noble leader. I am queen Wilhelmina, of the Netherlands and the Dutch people. Welcome."

Defeat: "My people shall resist your tyranny, and I shall be there to raise their voice across the airwaves."
