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.
