Albert I (1875-1934)Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Albert I (1875-1934)

Description: Albert I (April 8, 1875-February 17, 1934), King of the Belgians (1909-1934), left, speaks with a French officer during World War I. When German officials contacted Albert I to tell him they expected to move their troops through his country to attack France, he refused permission, stating “I rule a nation, not a road.” He further reminded Germany that the 1839 Treaty of London guaranteed his country’s neutrality, which Prussia had signed. Germany ignored their own agreement and invaded Belgium, and the small Belgian army fought back, but it was overwhelmed and Belgium was occupied by German troops, except for a tiny strip of the country at the River Yser, which was held by Belgian troops led by Albert I, and who remained in that position, fighting off all German attacks until the end of the war when Belgium was again free.
