R.I.P. Roi Baudouin

Today in 1993 the late King Baudouin died, a very sad occasion for all the people of Belgium. The King had many misfortunes, his reign saw many setbacks for the country, division of the country, loss of the empire, growing internationalism, but he was a great man. To stop these things was not in his character (which I mean he would not lead a royal coup or something) but he made his positions known very well and warned at every step when bad decisions were being made by his government. He is still missed by many people.
