Wilhelmina became Queen of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in 1890 and reigned from 1898 until 1948. She helped evacuate President Kruger from South Africa at the age of 20 and became a strong leader with a keen sense of business matters. She also wanted the Dutch society to change into a more modern society. The political connection between her and President Kruger is displayed at the Kruger Museum, with numerous artifacts from that era.
