Queen Elisabeth of Belgium statue, born Elisabeth of Bavaria. Her ascension from Duchess to Queen came in 1900 when she married Prince Albert who later became King of Belgium and reigned from 1909 to 1934. She became popular among the Belgians during WWI for her visits on the front lines to wounded soldiers and being a sponsor of a nursing unit. She founded in 1937 a musical festival that was renamed later in her honor the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition that is world famous to this day.

The Queen Elisabeth statue Above was made by René Cliquet in 1980
