Tribute to King Albert I

On the occasion of the anniversary of the brave soldier-King Albert I, who saved his country from invasion in the Great War and led the resurgence of Belgium afterwards, there is this tribute from The Cross of Laeken.


  1. Thank you for the link. Albert's death was so sad. For some reason, it always seems even more awful to me than Astrid's death.

  2. He was a great man, faced with historic obstacles he showed himself able to be all that was required in those times. Possibly the greatest but that is hard decision to make.
