Princess Charlotte was believed to have died from an undetected post-partum haemorrhage a few hours after delivering a stillborn son.

Yes, they are, although rather distantly related. The Duke of Albany's grandfather, Duke Ernst I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, was the elder brother of King Leopold I of the Belgians.

Did Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld (the Duchess Victoria of Kent) and her daughter, Princess (Queen) Victoria visit Leopold I in Belgium quite a lot once he became King of the Belgians in 1831?

He went to GB to visit his Niece .
Queen Victoria wrote a lot of letters to her dear Uncle. He arranged her wedding with his nephew and it was a happy one !
The relationship between Leopold and his sister Victoria and other siblings were not close.

I did not know that Leopold I was not close to his sisters Juliane (Grand Duchess Anna Feodorovna of Russia) and Victoria (the Duchess of Kent) and his brothers Ernest I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Ferdinand and other siblings.

In 1835 the Brussels-Malines steam passenger line opened.
King Leopold I of the Belgians had been championing the project since 1832.
The Brussels-Malines line was the first steam passenger line in continental Europe.

In a strongly Roman Catholic country, King Leopold I of the Belgians was a Lutheran. Leopold was of the House of Saxe-Cobourg. In the days before German unification, Leopold's nephew was Ernest II, reigning Duke of Saxe-Cobourg. It was Ernest II who conferred Saxe-Cobourg titles on Leopold's children by Baroness von Eppinghoven; it would possibly be a moot point of constitutional law whether the fact that acknowledged children of a Belgian monarch received titles from a foreign power is something that must be 'marked' by a Belgian government minister. (The Belgian constitution indicates that significant actions of royalty must be 'marked' by a minister.) In the event, the conferrals do not seem to have been regarded as problematic.

King Leopold I died Lutheran , we still have a lutheran Church near our Place Royale
The Priest of the Church of Laeken did not want his late body entering is Church.
The Royal Crypt is therefore behind the Church.
The Children of his Mistress Arcadie Claret were titled von Eppinghoven, I did not know the title was conferred by Ernest II , I always thought it was from the King itself.
What are your sources ? Thanks

It was interesting to learn that Louise-Marie, the daughter of Arthur, received until her demise the financial support of several members of the royal family.

Belgium was the first Continental European country to become industrialized, and the railroad was an important part of this.

MarcosFenn, Thank you for pointing out that the railroad helped in the process of Belgium to become industrialized.

Okay...obvious; but Belgium's rapid industrialization before other Continental countries is an important part of its history. It's interesting that many railroad stations now operating were built before 1860, and were formally opened by Leopold I.

King Luis I of Portugal sent a letter to his uncle, King Leopold I of the Belgians.
Luis wanted to marry but he was not certain which young lady should be his wife,
He had selected a number of Princesses.
He also considered some Archduchesses of Austria.
King Luis asked King Leopold for advice.
Leopold I thought the best choice was Archduchess Maria Theresa of Austria, the daughter of Archduke Albert.
King Luis I did not marry Maria Theresa. Her father thought she was too young at the time.
