Marriages of the Kings

King Leopold I and Queen Louise-Marie, origin of the Belgian royal house. Cross of Laeken writes of this historic event for the country.
King Leopold II and Queen Marie Henriette
King Albert I and Queen Elisabeth (sorry no picture!)

King Leopold III and Queen Astrid (no photo of second marriage)

King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola

King Albert II and Queen Paola


  1. I have a photograph of the wedding breakfast of Leopold and Lilian, I will try to post it sometime.

  2. Belgium has been fortunate I think (though not everyone appreciates this) to have had good marriages and good relationships with the royal family. Leopold I, Albert I, Leopold III, Baudouin all had happy marriages. Albert II has not been free of trouble but he also has made his marriage work and it is something people should appreciate that, unlike other monarchies, strong lasting marriages are the rule and not the exception.
