From 15 September until 29 October

Emma, mother of the modern monarchy

Every autumn, Escher in Het Paleis joins in with the festivities surrounding Prinsjesdag. This year the theme of the Prinsjesdag festival is 'Time to find common ground'. It's a good reason to raise the profile of Queen Mother Emma. We are doing this  in conjunction with the National Archive.
