Leopold had been offered the Greek throne in 1830 but declined.

How history could have changed!

On this day, Saturday August 7th in 1993, King Baudouin was buried. The splendor of this moving ceremony was the thing that got me interested in royalty.

That was one of the most impressivest royal funrals. Not only because it was attended by so many royal and also Presidents (like President Mitterrand, the then german president von Weizsäcker to name a few) but also because of the new widowed Queen Fabiola.

Wouldn't king Baudouin have been the longest reigning (or near enough) European monarch at that time?

Though I'm thinking that Prince Rainier III reigned 3 years longer?

In Europe Prince Rainier was 2 years longer on the Throne then Bauoduin and worldwide of course King Bhumibol. Not sure if there were more.
And this was till now the last funeral of an european King/Queen who had been reigning at the time of his death.
