Princess Angela in 1975

Princess Angela (Angela Marie Van Draak, born 3 December 1927) is a Brunanter princess and sister to former King Marten II. She was born in the Realpaleis in Koningstad to King Johan II and Maria Benedita of Braganza and was their second child and only daughter.


Princess Angela' first marriage was to Prince Heinrich of Hesse-Kassel in 1949. Heinrich's family had been prosecuted by the Nazis and therefore was a suitable husband with no Nazi connections. The pair had a very unhappy marriage as they were both young and did not yet want to settle down. The marriage ended in divorce in 1952, but the pair remained lifelong friends. The princess was then married to distant family relation Albert Van Draak in 1955. He was a member of the Libertan branch of the Van Draak family, a son of Richard Van Draak. The couple would have two children: Hendrik and Henrietta.
