On the Dutch language Wikipedia about Prince Charles of Belgium, Count of Flanders (brother of King Leopold III of the Belgians and of Queen Maria José of Italy) is to read:

In zijn testament liet hij het diamanten diadeem van keizerin Joséphine na aan zijn zus Marie-José.

Translation:
In his testament he bequeathed Empress Joséphine's diamond diadem to his sister Marie-José.

Two questions:
- which diadem is meant ?
- how came a diadem from Joséphine Bonaparte (formerly De Beauharnais) into Prince Charles' ownership?

The tiara you write about was made from diamonds gifted by Emperor Alexander I to Empress Josephine and then left to her son Prince Eugene. His Leuchtenberg descendants had a tiara made from the diamonds in the 1890s which was sold by them to King Albert after WWI.

Oooow it is that diadem. Yes I remember it. What a fabulous effect this diadem must have had, with free hanging bricolette cut diamonds glittering in the lights of chandeliers and candelabras. The Swedish Connaught on steroïds, so to say.

It is a shame it left the Belgian and Italian royal families but okay. Now I can place this diadem the Wikipedia article mentioned.
