(De ministerraad besluit op 10 mei 1932 dat het Wilhelmus bij alle officiële gelegenheden ten gehore zal worden gebracht. Voor die tijd werd het lied ook al regelmatig gespeeld bij officiële gelegenheden, zoals de inhuldiging van koningin Wilhelmina in 1898. Tot 1932 was Wien Neerlands Bloed het officiële volkslied. Dit lied was speciaal geschreven voor de stichting van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden in 1815. Het Wilhelmus is geschreven tussen 1568 en 1572 en is daarmee het oudste volkslied ter wereld. De auteur is waarschijnlijk Marnix van St. Allegonde, alhoewel sommigen beweren dat het Coornhert is geweest. Het Wilhelmus is een ode aan Willem van Oranje en dateert uit de zestiende eeuw.)
