"What happens with an abdication?"

Translation:Wat gebeurt er met een abdicatie?

November 15, 2014



Nobody uses abdicatie. "Troonsafstand" would be most commonly used.


I don't agree, abdicatie is used, but an abdication in itself is quite a rare occasion, which means you will rarely hear the words describing it. However around the abdication of Queen Beatrix in 2013 both abdicatie and troonsafstand were used, I think the latter was indeed used more frequently.
