Is this the same King Billy who caused all the problems between Celtic and Rangers?  ;D

I don't think so, most if not all of our kings bear the name "Willem" or some variation on that.. Wilhelm, Willie, William, etc.

I cut out the queens, since they're not named willem or variation  :8)

    Willem Frederik, Koning (1772-1843)
    Willem II, Koning (1840-1849)
    Willem III, Koning (1849-1890)
    Willem-Alexander, Koning (2013) - Present.

It was William III, Prince of Orange or King Billy as he's known in our parts, who left a very sectarian footprint in our society. The Battle of the Boyne 1690 is a landmark for unionists and Rangers fans alike. A famous Protestant fighting wars against Catholics and upsetting Celtic fans in their droves......

And we ask ourselves how we cant all just move on and get along together!!  :scared0005:
