Badouin is my favorite king the same that king Olav and Harald V. I read that when he visited my country (México) in 1965, with the queen, they visited Teotihuacan, here is a historic place azteca, and a journalist ask him "what do you think about this place?" and the king answered the same, he wanted to know about Teotihuacan. The journalist didnt know and all the journalist and the king smiled. The king is, now, of course, a person that I respect. I think that he is a example for much of our. I dont belive the rumors that say that he was loved of the second wife of his father. I belive that it is'nt true. I wait that the king will be beatificated. I am sorry for my bad English.

Thank you for your interesting insights, Marengo. I didn't know that this painting would represent the first Queen of Belgium.

I visited belgium some years ago, and I just loved this beatiful country. I wish I could return there some day of my life.

Vanesa.

Marengo, I am an American and I have recently "discovered" and become enchanted by the love story and reign of his late Majesty Baudouin I and his wonderful consort Queen Fabiola.

My question is, was there ever any pressure from either the Government or the people of Belgium on the King to put aside his wife and have his marriaged annulled, due to her inability to produce an heir? Or did the people of Belgium always remain as devoted and loyal to the Queen as they seem to be today?

Thanks in advance to all the posters who have contributed these beautiful photos and stories!

I don´t think he was ever pushed to do as the Sjah of Persia. I have read that Fabiola did offer to get their marriage annuled, for the sake of the dynasty but Baudouin of course didn´t agree to that. I think that the Belgians were always devoted to Fabiola, and maybe her tragedy of not having kids even made people sympathise more.

Oh, how sad for them. They would have been wonderful parents, I am sure.

I can't find any books about them here in the U.S. Any suggestions? I can read French, but not Dutch.

Paty-

Thank you for the pictures. I always love to see my favorite Queen out and about and looking so well.

Her Majesty always wears that heart shaped medal with the image of her much loved late husband inside....how beautiful.

I wonder who gave it to her?

It was a "flowerconcert" specially for the 200th anniversary of the "Gentse Floraliën". A concert where they only played pieces who reffered to flowers. King Albert and queen Paola will attend the 'flowerparade' in the summer!

I was wondering, is there any controversy about the amount of money that Fabiola receives in the Belgian press? Point de Vue run an article about it, even placing Fabiola on the cover (apart from Carla Bruni of course).
