    or Den Haag.

    s' gravenhage is the official name, but usually people refer to it as den haag.
    den is old dutch for 'the' hence the hague in english.

    Somewhere I read that it was that damned Napoleon who judged 's-Gravenhage and 's-Hertogenbosch (resp.: the count's hague and the duce's forest) too ancien régime and ordered Den Bosch / Den Haag to be used. AFAIK the 'official version' in the NL ought to be the long-unpronounceble-way to long for road signs-one.
