National Anthem of the Netherlands - "Het Wilhelmus" (The William)
Includes lyrics in both Dutch and English.
Viewers please note that some of the Dutch language is from an older dialect, and that the vocals are of a slightly older version of the current anthem. The word "Duitsen" has been translated to "Dutch" because at the time of the composition of the lyrics "Germany" did not exist. As well as this, the anthem is Dutch and therefore the translation was most likely intended to be "Dutch". In addition to this, only in the modern Dutch language has "Duits" come to mean "German". Therefore, this video translates "Duitsen" as "Dutch". Any cultural offence caused by this translation is unintended and thoroughly apologised for.
