Following the publication of , het verhaal van een huwelijk 1936-1956 (Balans: Amsterdam 2008) by the historian and lawyer Cees Fasseur the Tijdschrift voor Geschiedenis has invited critics to give their opinion about the book and, more broadly, about the historical study of the Dutch monarchy. Maria Grever examines the extend to which Queen Beatrix has influenced this book about the marriage of her parents. More so, can Juliana en Bernhard be considered an academic work, given the fact that only Fasseur was given access to the Royal Archives? Lambert Giebels argues that this collection should be made available to all historians. Coen Tamse and Carla Hoetink raise questions about the royal marriage itself and about the relationship between Juliana and Bernhard. In his reply Fasseur defends his position as an independent academic.
