 > Congratulations! You live in the real and formal capital of the Netherlands.
 > The Dutch government has its seat in The Hague (Den Haag, 's-Gravenhage).

Which makes it the capital by both the English meaning of the word (Webster)
and the Dutch meaning of the word (van Dale).  Note that when I was at school
we were taught that The Hague was the capital, while the only claim to fame
of Amsterdam was that Kings and Queens would be crowned there.
