Untitled[edit]

Has anyone noticed all of his children have the name Willem (males) and even his only daughter, bears the fiminization of Willem, thus Wilhelmina. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.208.59.224 (talk) 22:17, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Prince of Luxembourg[edit]

I have noticed that someone added at the pages about the children of William III to their names the title "Prince of Luxembourg". Is that correct? Demophon (talk) 07:41, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Monarchical Styles Infobox[edit]

This infobox, besides looking like a gaudy wine label, doesn't have any practical use in the biography. It's a bit silly (and not at all reverent) to address a King of the Netherlands in English, especially when he has been in his tomb for a long time. I'm going to remove it, as (for instance) happened on the King Christian VIII of Denmark page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Glatisant (talkcontribs) 13:00, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Birthdate[edit]

It is universally known that he celebrated official birthday two days after his real one If even the Dutch High Council of Nobility gives his birthdate as 19 february, I can hardly call this allegation "universally known". Please give a reliable source.
