      Belgium's National Holiday

    • The oath of Leopold Saxe-Gotha-Coborg is celebrated on the Belgian National Holiday, which occurred on 21 July 1831. In this oath Leopold swore to remain faithful to the Constitution.
      Immediately after the Napoleonic Wars, modern-day Belgium was part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands, but the Dutch Army was defeated during the Belgian Revolution of 1830, after which Belgium declared its independence.
      The following year, 1831, Leopold of Saxe-Gotha-Coborg became the first King of Belgium under the name of Leopold I.
