Royal Belgian Monograms

Hi there,

I wonder if anyone can help me to find information about the Belgian Royal Monograms. I am in particular looking for the monograms picture and general information about them.

Thanks in advance,

Belgian monograms

King Albert II 's monogram is on the Belgian euro coins (A with a crown above). Albert I's monogram was probably the same as Albert II's.

If I am not mistaken,the Leopolds' monogram was an L, mirrored to the left side, with a crown above (so two L's, the first mirrored).
Boudewijn's monogram was probably just a B with a crown above. Maybe mirrored as well, can't remember, I was only a child when he died.

I hope this helps you somewhat. Haven't found pictures, but euro-coins you can find on Wiki. Maybe pictures of royal buildings can help, I distinctly remember seeing a Leopold monogram in greyish stone one day.

You can find the mirrored L on the building of the central station in Antwerp. [next to the Zoo] People told me that it is the monogram of Leopold II, I don't know if it is also the monogram of the others Kings Leopold.

Maybe you can also look and ask your questions about this subject here

There are the treads about this subject in general.
