Regarding most of these titles, the land ownership that was attached to the title was forfeited by the French in 1795 after the invasion of the Netherlands. The House of Orange-Nassau, however, continued to use the titles.

The Queen signs official documents "Beatrix" and is addressed as "Your Majesty" (Dutch: "Uwe Majesteit"). Queen Beatrix's mother, Queen Juliana, frowned upon this title. She preferred to be addressed as "Mevrouw", Dutch for "Madam". Queen Beatrix re-introduced the Royal Style of Majesty when addressing her.
