Belgian Monarch. Known as the youngest sovereign of his time, he ascended the throne in 1951 after the abdication of his father, King Leopold III. In 1959 he gave independence to the Congo because of continuous revolts against the power of Belgium. During his reign, Belgium became a federal state, and he played an effective role in coordinating between the various parliamentary factions. Considered a deeply religious man, he has also dedicated his time to philanthropic and charitable works. The Roman Catholic Church has begun to his name a Process of Beatification.
