1950s

The first Bilderberg Meeting was held in the Netherlands in 1954. The group has had 168 Dutch members[1] over the years, more than other similarly sized European states.[2] (By way of comparison, there have only been two documented Dutch visitors to the Pinay Cercle: Cornelis Bossers & Frans Alphons Maria Alting von Geusau).[3]

1970s

The Dutch Prince Bernhard and Queen Juliana returning from Italy because of developments in the Lockheed scandal. In the back seat Juliana with her dog Sara. The Netherlands, August 26, 1976.

Prince Bernhard played a major role until his exposure by the Lockheed/Bribery scandals, which caused the cancellation of the [[1976 Bilderberg. When Dutch Prime Minister Joop den Uyl ordered an inquiry Bernhard refused to answer reporters' questions, stating: "I am above such things".[4] The results of the inquiry led to a constitutional crisis in which Queen Juliana threatened to abdicate if Bernhard was prosecuted. Bernhard was spared, but stepped down from several public positions and from chairing the Bilderberg. Victor Halberstadt is an economist who has maintained a low public profile in spite of attending all Bilderberg meetings since 1975, and being honorary Secretary General of the group from 1980-2000.[5]
