Louise-Marie, Queen of the Belgians (Louise-Marie Thrse Charlotte Isabelle d'Orlans) - fille de France, and Queen of the Belgians as the wife of King Leopold I. Born in Palermo, Sicily on April 3, 1812, she was the eldest daughter of the future King Louis-Phillippe of the French and his wife Maria Amalia of the Two Sicilies. On August 9, 1832, Louise-Marie married King Leopold I of the Belgians in Compigne, France. She and Leopold had four children, including Leopold II of Belgium and Empress Carlota of Mexico.

Leopold met Louise Marie for the first time when she was about 9 years old. His first impression was that she was "too silent".

She was, in fact, a very shy girl, and she only appeared in public when her husband forced her.

Their marriage was purely political and ensured the political support for Belgium's independence of one of it's most powerful neighbour, as well as its allegiance.

Since Leopold was a protestant, they had both a Catholic and a Calvinist ceremony.
