The Children of Leopold I of Belgium

Leopold I with Louise and children

Leopold I of Belgium was born Leopold Georg Christian Friedrich to Francis, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld and Augusta Reuss-Ebersdorf. He married Princess Charlotte of Wales, who was born Charlotte Augusta, and after her death he married Louise of Orléans, who was born Louise Marie Thérèse Charlotte Isabelle. Princess Charlotte suffered a miscarriage, and then gave birth to a stillborn boy, and died from complications surrounding it. She was twenty-one.
His children with Louise were:

After the death of Louise of Orléans at the age of thirty-eight, Leopold took up a mistress, Arcadie Meyer, with whom he had two sons, George and Arthur.
