The Council of Europe principally aims to defend human rights and parliamentary democracy. The organization is composed of two bodies : the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly, as well as three institutions: the European Court of Human Rights, the Commissioner for Human Rights and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities. The Secretary General of the Council of Europe has the overall responsibility for the activities of the organization.

      The following year, 1831, Leopold of Saxe-Gotha-Coborg became the first King of Belgium under the name of Leopold I.
