Though I'm thinking that Prince Rainier III reigned 3 years longer?
Baudouin ascended his throne two years after Rainier. At the time of his death the current monarchs of Europe had started their reigns in the following order:
Rainier of Monaco 1949
Baudouin of Belgium 1951
Elizabeth of UK 1952
Jean of Luxembourg 1964
Margrethe of Denmark 1972
Carl Gustav of Sweden 1973
Juan Carlos of Spain 1975
Beatrix of the Netherlands 1980
Hans-Adam of Liechtenstein 1989
Harald of Norway 1991

That's a bit mind-blowing. I don't think anyone at the time would have imagined that abdication would become so frequent as we can see today.

The most impressive Picture to me is the one of the 9 Kings at the Funerals of King Edouard VIII. Our King Albert I was the one without the Sash of the Order of the Garter!

Beatrix of the Netherlands and Juan Carlos of Spain have abdicated,Rainier III and Grand Duke Jean have both passed.

It is coincidental that Marie Henriette has a grandfather who is Leopold II and her spouse is a Leopold II.

It wasn't entirely coincidental. King Leopold II was the son of King Leopold I, who in turn was named for his godfather, the grandfather of Marie-Henriette.

But Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II,. died in 1792 and Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld the later King Léopold I.of the Belgians was born 4 years later in 1796. so he can hardly have been his godfather.

The future King Leopold I was born in 1790 per the monarchy's website. It was said in Histoire de la maison de Saxe-Cobourg-Gotha that the Emperor was his godfather and namesake.

That's a very informative link on the Belgian Royal Site and gives the basic information without too much heavy information.

The Belgians have one of the 'better' official royal sites.

Then An Online Gotha is wrong as i looked there and they have him born in 1796.

But somehow it seems a bit strange that a Prince from a protestant Family got the Habsburg Emperor as godfather.

26th of August 1346 : Death of Louis I ,Count of Flanders, Nevers and Rethel.

Louis was Count of Flanders and Nevers from 1322 until his death and also Count of Rethel from 1328.
He was killed at the Battle of Crécy in 1346.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_...nt_of_Flanders

His remains were later buried in a splendid tomb at the now destroyed St. Donatian's Cathedral in Bruges.
The cathedral was pulled down by the French in 1799 and his tomb was not saved and was destroyed.

Would not the parents of Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld still be required to also obtain Protestant godparents for Leopold?

I would have thought so at that time but upon further reading I discovered that another Austrian Emperor,Francis II was one of the godfathers to Albert the future Prince Consort of the Untied Kingdom.

It is unusual , but not impossible for a Catholic to serve as a godparent in a Protestant baptism, or even vice-versa. Among royals, it might be more common. Queen Mathilde for example is the godmother of Princess Isabella of Denmark, who is Lutheran.

The only mandatory requirement, I think, is that the godparent must be baptized himself/herself and that his/her baptism must be considered valid. The Catholic Church for example recognizes baptisms performed in Anglican, Lutheran or Reformed churches. In fact, if a former member of those denominations ,is received in the Catholic Church, he or she does not need to ( in fact must not) be baptized again.

It was probably wasn't as common back in the 16th/17th/18th/19th when ecumenism among Roman Catholics and Protestants was virtually non existent
