The line of succession to the Dutch throne is the list of people who may become King or Queen of the Netherlands.[1]

History[change | edit source]

Since 1983, Dutch law identifies the eldest child of a Dutch monarch as the royal heir. The first-born child follows his or her parent on the throne.[2] This is known as full or equal primogeniture.
