Marriage Juliana and Bernard
In the 1930s, Queen Wilhelmina began a search for a suitable husband for her daughter. At the time, the House of Orange-Nassau was one of the most strictly religious royal families in the world, and it was very difficult to find a Protestant prince who suited their standards. Princes from the United Kingdom and Sweden were "vetted" but either declined or were rejected by the princess.

At the 1936 Winter Olympics in Bavaria, she met Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld, a young German aristocrat. His rank and religion were suitable; so Princess Juliana's royal engagement was arranged by her mother. Princess Juliana fell deeply in love with her fiancé, a love that was to last a lifetime and that withstood separation during the war and Bernhard's extramarital affairs and illegitimate children. The astute Queen Wilhelmina, by then the richest woman in the world, left nothing to chance. Wilhelmina had her lawyers draw up a prenuptial agreement that specified exactly what the German-born prince could and could not do, and what money he would receive from the royal estate. The couple's engagement was announced on 8 September 1936.

Je maintiendrai (Dutch: I will maintain) has been the Dutch motto since 1815.

The spell is actually the weapon spell of the house of Orange-Nassau, which William of Orange inherited with the principality of Orange through the legacy of René van Chalon.

Originally the spell was Je maintiendrai Chalon, but Willem changed her to Je maintiendrai Nassau. After a while he left Nassau out and this simply became Je maintiendrai.
