Thank you An Ard Ri for sharing the very interesting video of the Queen's funeral.
I saw her in the Salon des Penseurs at the Royal Palace , on the little table next to her I saw her violin.
The Queen has asked the the surviving Nurses of the Ocean Hospital at la Panne , spend the night next to her dead body. So did my grandmother .
At the end of my grandmother's funerals I heard the Brabançonne , our National Hymn !

In Long to Reign, A. W. Purdue wrote:

Another queen with artistic and bohemian inclinations, Queen Elisabeth of the Belgians. rose to the challenge of war and became a national heroine. Based with her husband on the last strip of Belgian soil, she devoted herself to nursing the wounded and becoming a saintly figure to Belgian soldiers.

Maria-Olivia, During the 1950s, Elisabeth evoked controversy abroad by visiting the Soviet Union, Poland, and China.
These trips prompted some people to label Elisabeth as the "RED QUEEN."

This was just at the end.
What we remember for ever is her attitude during the first War and the "Concours de Musique Reine Elisabeth".

I wonder what tiara Elisabeth of Bavaria is wearing in this portrait which I've never seen before?
