The genealogy of our Royal family ( van Oranje -Nassau ) is quite complicated. The Netherlands form a Kingdom since 1815. Before 1795 it used to be a republic, since the country became independent from Spain. The stadhouderlijk hof in Leeuwarden has never been used as a Royal Palace, but it was the residence of the stadhouder ( provincial gouvernor ) The first stadhouder van Friesland ( 1584-1620 ) was Willem Lodewijk van Nassau-Dillenburg.
