I am new to this site, and would like any information about Prince Baudouin, elder brother of Albert, and the mystery surrounding his premature death. Also the rumours that he was having an affair with a Royal governess, and that he may possibly have died as a result of injuries sustained during a duel with his lovers husband
Thanks in advance

This are rumors.
He died from pneumonia as his grand mother Queen Louise Marie and his cousin Prince Leopold (10 years old).
