Leopold I advised Queen Victoria to marry his nephew Albert and it was a good Choice.

Maria-Olivia, I agree. King Leopold gave excellent advice to Victoria.

Good gracious can we all agree that that was one good looking man. Rarely do you find dead historical figures who are that handsome.

At the Chapel of the Compiègne Castle i visited. Much smaller than on the Painting.
Kins Leopold I ,last word was Nein, because his daughter in law Princess Marie Henriette wanted him to die Catholic.

A Walloon animation studio is raising money to start an animation series about Leopold I. A trailer:

The film will be 29 minutes and they need 120.000 euros for that. They hope to raise 50.000 euros by crowd funding.

I suppose that the lady telling Leopold to get a job is his mother? I recognise King Louis-Philippe, King Willem I, Queen Louise-Marie and the lady on the large painting must be Pss Charlotte of Wales.
