Quote from: Figleaf on January 28, 2017, 11:34:20 AMThis coin has the titles of William-Henri of the house of Nassau: GVILLH.HENR.D.G.PRIN DO - William-Henri by the grace of god prince of Orange. Bd.1014, PA.4649, Vôute and Van der Wiel 134. However, that is indeed the same person as the king of England and (later) the head of state of the Netherlands. He died without children in 1702, giving the French king an excuse to annex Orange to the French throne, so he was the last prince of Orange who actually held the territory.Peter
