Every Country has leaders who are remembered by their strong leadership and impact on the region. It may be a President, a monarch, King, Prince or Queen, or a leader who is commemorated by their strong influence and voice that made change happen. This holiday is all about celebrating these leaders.
King's Day (Koningsdag) celebrates the birthday of the reigning monarch in the Kingdom of Netherlands.
In 2013, Willem-Alexander succeeded his mother and became the first King of the Netherlands in 123 years. Queen's Day was changed to King's Day in 2014 as a public holiday to celebrate the current King.
