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.

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.

Altough evereybody know about Arcadie , his morganitic wedding in Germany (1929) is 99% unkown. He has children with Arcadie , they are unknown yet.
Alleged children, as Arcadie was married and promiscuous. Per members of her own family - neither child looked anything like the other so it was suspected she had other lovers.

Well, she wasn't an official anything, as she was dismissed just after the Queen died. It's been documented by many historians, it's just recent "historians" who make her into something she wasn't. She was very much disliked as she was an arrogant, stupid woman. She treated her husband badly and her own mother got her to marry in order to stay close to and entrap the King. Per many historians, she started as a mistress yet became more a friend, if EVEN that. She only came around to get favours for her family.

He was close to some and not close to others. He was indeed fond of Juliane.

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
She bought it for her illegitimate children. Unlike a couple of recent authors who manufacture information about AC, she bought the titles because she believed the King was dying and didn't want the gravy train to end. He had next to nothing to do with her at this point - she was nothing but a "friend" at this point.

This is a terrible "source". It's just repeating bad information from bad sources.

MAfan you are speaking about a german lady and a morganatic wedding before he was King of the Belgians. This was an officially unknown and strange story ..
No, this is not true, sorry. She was dismissed as a mistress VERY early after the death of Queen Louise. It's only a few authors who claim she was until his death, but that is not the least bit true.

There is a author or two who made up information about her for their own reasons - THAT is what is strange. She was very unpopular, her entire family was. Not a good or accomplished woman.

King Leopold I was offered to make the sacrifice of his crown in the Revolution of 1848.

Correspondence between King Leopold I and Queen Victoria (see the online Letters from the Queen) shows that Leopold was afraid of losing his crown in 1848 (especially after the monarchy had fallen in France) and appealed for British protection should republican France try to invade and occupy Belgium.


Having said that, the Revolution of 1848 ultimately did not spill over to Belgium, in part due to Leopold's political skill and sound government, so I don't quite understand what episode the picture is representing exactly.
