This is Minerva Typ AC with the body of Limousine Landaulette built by the Dutch Van Rijswijk of Voorburg (Den Haag) in 1925 (chassis 54299, No. motor 54170) for the Dutch Prince Hendrik (the grandfather of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands).
Https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_He ... g-Schwerin
It was Van Rijswijk, so he was given the official status of "Hofleverancier" (Official supplier of the Royal Court of the Netherlands). The car had specially made royal touches, such as small silver-plated crowns on the headlights and a hand-painted emblem on the doors. The price paid for it was then 6,705 Dutch guilders.
The car was completely rebuilt in 1997 and is still in use as an exit parade for events and the Queen of the Netherlands Beatrix.

Now the car is exhibited in the Dutch National Museum "Paleis Het Loo". With which I had to cancel to clarify the chassis number. The information is taken directly from Koninklijk Autorijden by Frans Vrijaldenhoven)
