In Belgium she has respect! Nowadays she comes less in the media than when she was princess! the King and princess Mathilde are more poulair, she doens't like to be in the spotlights and prefers to work at the background where she does a lot of work especially for "Child focus"

I have seen the book in the bookshop and I find it fantastic, with beautifull pictures!

Books on the Royal Family of Belgium?

Hello,

Are there any books out on the Royal Family of Belgium that might be recommended?

I have been perusing the threads on this family and find them of great interest.

Best,

NAP

I have about five, but all of them are in French. It's a shame because I agree with you, they are a fascinating read! I can read French fairly well but I do wish I could get something good in English.

The only one I know of( inEnglish) is "A Throne In Brussels" by Paul Belien but I warn you that it is written from the perspective of very anti-Belgium, pro-separatist writer. Mr Belien has NO use for the dynasty at all, and everyone comes off very badly, with the possible exception of Baudouin and even he takes some hits for his handling of the Congo crisis, and for his near fanatical(in Mr Belien's view) Catholicism.

Belien is brutal with the other members of the family, namely Leopold II, Leopold III, and Albert and Paola.

Can you give me titles?

If you could present the titles of those books, I would appreciate it. My spoken French would cause me to be murdered, but I can usually get through written French with a healthy assist from a good translation dictionary for the first few hours until I "lever up."

I'll check into the "A Throne in Brussels." I appreciate the heads-up on the axe being ground!

No problem...I'll get all five of them and post them on Monday for you!
Also, DO check out the thread on pg #3 of this topic entitled "Royal Belgian Books"...it's where I got most of the info on how to find books on the BRF...I particularly recommend "Queen Fabiola-La Reine Blanche" (The White Queen) very moving, it turned me into a lifelong fan of Her Majesty...she and her late husband King Baudouin had the most beautiful love story and inspiring marriage I have ever read about.

Hi all,
I have put some books about Belgian royalty up for sale on ebay. I will put up more later. It are books that aren't available in libraries anymore. I thought I would share this with you, since there probably are some fans on the look-out for nice editions related to their royal hobby.

The first book is "Laurent. Prins op overschot". It's a book in Dutch on prince Laurent. A biography from 2003, with over 40 pictures. It describes his difficult youth, his rebellious teens, the affairs he had before meeting Claire, his depression en lots of anecdotes. It gives a good insight in how he became the person he is. Written by the editor of VTM program "Royalty".

--> Search for "Royalty: Laurent" on ebay

The second book is "Philippe, Mathilde et Elisabeth", written in French by royal reporter Anne Quevrin, in 2001. It informs about Philippe and Mathilde's family backgrounds, about their engagement, wedding, early professional years, and Mathilde's first pregnancy. Especially nice if you want to learn more about the d'Udekem d'Acoz family and the upbringing of crownprinces/princesses in Belgium. It contains many photos, some very rare ones of Mathilde's pre-engagement days.

--> Search for "Anne Quevrin" on ebay

It is a nice book, it has some very nice pictures and paintings of unknown pieces but the most interesting thing are not the pictures but the stories. So if you can not read dutch it might be better to get the French version.

Albert II Of Belgium biography

The sixth king of the Belgians, Albert II (born 1934), succeeded to the throne upon the death of his brother, Baudoin, July 31, 1993. He was formally sworn in August 9, 1993.
Belgium found itself unexpectedly with a new king when King Baudoin died on July 31, 1993. Baudoin had no children, and nine days later his younger brother, Albert, took the oath as king of the Belgians (the constitutional title of the Belgian monarch). Albert, born in Brussels on June 6, 1934, to King Leopold III and Queen Astrid, was only three years younger than Baudoin. He did not step aside in favor of his son, Philippe, as had been anticipated; at 33 years of age Philippe was rumored to be still unready for the responsibilities of the monarch.
The throne of Belgium was no longer itself in peril, as it had been under Leopold III because of his disputed role in the surrender of Belgium to the Germans in World War II. After Leopold's abdication in 1950, Baudoin had brought stability but not harmony to a country gripped by a struggle between Dutch-speaking Flanders and French-speaking Wallonia. At the time of his death Belgium had begun a far-reaching federalization that made the maintenance of Belgian unity as a country questionable. The wave of mourning over Baudoin's passing brought Flemings and Walloons together in support of the monarchy, and there was no support for an anarchist deputy who shouted in favor of a European republic before Albert took his oath. It was thought by some that the rush to full separation into independent states, anticipated for early in the next century, would be halted by the new king's influence and the resurgent commitment to the dynasty.
