Of the past , my favourite is Queen Astrid:)

Lila Rose, thank you for all the time and effort you have put into this. :)

Cathérine Bergeyck 03-25-2006 04:18 PM

I don't know why all spouses of crownprinces are suddenly called crownprincess. At least for Belgium this isn't correct. Crownprince is the one who inherits the throne, so Philippe in this case. Mathilde will never be on the throne. The first Belgian crownprincess will be princess Elisabeth, because she'll be a reigning queen.

Charlotte is also one of my favorites! More than an eccentric she was a woman who tried very hard to become a good empress for Mexico, but had a husband who wasn't up to the task and foreign aid that just abandoned her when they could no longer benefit from it themselves. I believe she went "mad" from despair.

Which book have you read on her? I've read one written by Mia Kerckvoorde, a very good one!

I didn't realize that. Except for the English and Spanish that use titles P/Pcess of Wales and P/Pcess of Asturias -- I thought all of those that were to become the King/Queen were "technically" (even as in the aforementioned they use different titles) Crown Prince and Crown Princess. I will have to change my comments some. Glad to have this information, Catherine.

The Complete Belgian Royal Family
 
I'm currently working on a project on the Belgian Royal Family, and I have decided to include children born out of wedlock and even adopted children.
It's known that king Leopold I had two children out of wedlock, Leopold II also had two children out of wedlock, Charlotte and Maximilian seem to have adopted two children. King Albert II also had a child born out of wedlock (Delphine) and the Prince-Regent Charles (or Karel in Dutch) also had a child out of wedlock. Some sources state that king Leopold III also had a child born out of wedlock but other sources mention that child but aren't really sure. So what's true and what's false?

I'm interested in all information you guys might have.

Thanks a lot

I believe Empress Charlotte of Mexico also adopted a son, Agustin de Iturbide y Green (purely out of political reasons). When she arrived back form Mexico she was also pregnant and t5he child was adopted. Some say the child was of her and Maximilian, others say that it was hers and of a lover. The son grew up to be one of the most important French generals in the first World War. I forgot his name (and do not remember in which of my books I found this info, but I will check it) but he was referred to as cousin by King Albert I. His last name started with a W. so maybe other posters know.

Marengo 11-04-2006 02:33 PM

Found it, the name was Maxime Weygand:

Hannelore 11-04-2006 03:48 PM

Maxime Weygand was certainly not a child of Charlotte, she was unable to have children.

An intresting theorie on Weygand can be found in Mia Kerckvoorde's book on Charlotte: http://www.lannoo.be/content/lannoo/...titelcode=2218

Marengo 11-04-2006 04:08 PM

Thanks, but I still have an unread book on Maximilian and Charlotte in English at home, will finish that one first.

The people who believe in the theory claim that Charlotte was able to give children. Some say that Maximilian was the father, other say that she had a lover. Several authors and other royalty experts think the claim is right, or at least possible. It is curious that he was referred to as 'cousin' by King Albert I.
Another theory (less supported) was that he was a son of Leopold II btw.
