Belgian royalty, the son of Leopold III and Queen Astrid. He became king upon the death of his brother, King Baudouin, who died childless on 7/31/93 after a reign of 42 years. Though his son, Philippe, was rather expected to succeed Baudouin, the succession went to him due to his extensive experience in leading Belgian trade relations. He assumed the throne at a time of economic recession and a currency under pressure plus problems between his country's six million Dutch speakers and four million French speakers.
Married, he has three kids. In 1993 he was reported to have Parkinson's Disease.
He abdicated on 21 July 2013, in favour of his son Philippe.
