A new king for Belgium?

December 18, 1914

The Germans are "doing their utmost to force upon the Belgians the conviction" that their country is conquered, and will soon become a German state, according to a dispatch from the London Daily News, and reported by the New York Times.

Authorities are hinting that the future ruler will be Prince Otto of Windisch-Graetz, who is married to Archduchess Elisabeth of Austria, daughter of the late Archduke Rudolf, only son of Emperor Franz Joseph, and Princess Stephanie of Belgium, daughter of the late King Leopold II.
