Incan... Incan... really? Queen Maxima is argentinian, i do know her ancestry but it just feels weird calling her that (may as well call her Portuguese Queen)
Now, we have a new monarch, so respects are in order.


Hey, she's a descendant of King Afonso III of Portugal and most probably from Sapa Inca Tupac Huallpa, Atahualpa's brother. (Wikipedia's finally providing sources to back that up, how wonderful!)

And I just felt like promoting the highest rank in Maxima's bloodline. Isn't it cool that the next Dutch monarch will most probably be the first royal of Inca blood to sit on a throne since the 16th century!?

An excellent, if not somewhat understated investiture in my view. Then again when your yardstick of what it takes to signify a change of monarch is the Commonwealth one then just about every present one pales in comparison. The former Queen looked radiant and finally relaxed, the new King (boy "King of The Netherlands" is still going to take some getting used to!) looked every inch a sovereign, the new Crown Princess and her Sisters looked a treat, such a responsibility at such a young age, ah the magic of monarchy that other forms of governance can't provide. The people voted with their feet and voice in vast numbers, an endorsement that no parliament can ever enjoy. A truly colourful spectacle, and a stark contrast to that in 1980, which was saddled with protest and tear gas. Long live the New King and Queens old and new.

With the accession of the new King and Queen of the Netherlands, there are now three European consorts with Amerindian blood. Besides Queen Maxima, they are the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg and Queen Silvia of Sweden.

Isn't that neat, especially since now the Netherlands, Sweden, and Luxembourg all have partially Amerindian heirs?!?!?!?! Woohoo!!!!!!!

Well, yeah, that's neat.

At least they have some proof to the claim, unlike so many who claim 'I've got Indian blood' in North America.

I tried to watch this streaming, but they kept talking and I got too sleepy so I turned it off.
Anyway though, long live the king!
