King of Saxony in Brussels

December 9, 1914

King Friedrich August III of Saxony has arrived in Brussels, according to a Central News dispatch from Amsterdam via the Belgian capital.

This dispatch confirms an earlier report from Copenhagen that the king of Saxony would travel to Belgium to "encourage the troops" and to represent Kaiser Wilhelm II during "His Majesty's absence in the eastern arena of the war."
