'koningsdag' or kings day is always celibated on the birthday of the present monarch. King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands didn't change the day to his birthday. It's tradition that the day changes when a new monarch comes to power to the birthday of that presiding monarch.

Joanna (Juana la Loca) did not exactly refuse to bury her husband, she just did not want to do it right away: she toured around Castille to find the most beautiful and special place in the kingdom and then bury him there. The problem was that it took her several months, and also that it happened during the summer, and maybe that she made the body travel along with her... that woman was great.
