Dance Information

The title "Prince of Orange" historically refers to a hereditary title associated with the heir apparent to the Dutch throne.

Originally established in the 14th century, the title signifies a close connection to the House of Orange-Nassau. Notable historical figures, such as William the Silent, held the title, contributing significantly to the establishment of the Dutch Republic. Over time, the title has been passed down through generations within the House of Orange-Nassau.

In the modern context, the current holder of the title is Willem-Alexander, who became King of the Netherlands in 2013.
