Frederick, Prince of Orange
- (1797-1881)Born in Berlin on 28 February 1797, Frederick was the son of King William I, who ruled the united kingdom of the Netherlands and Belgium after 1815. Frederick was particularly fond of Brussels, spending much time at his residence at the Palais des Académies, and his sentiment was reciprocated by city residents. He clashed with his aristocratic father in espousing liberal attitudes and evinced much sympathy for discontented Belgians. Following the outbreak of the Belgian Revolution in August 1830, several members of the Commission of Security, including Nicolas Rouppe, advocated a dual kingdom of monarchs sitting separately in Belgium and the Netherlands. Frederick arrived in Brussels on 1 September and promised to promote the plan to his father. However, extremism prevailed, and Frederick led a Dutch army corps against Belgian revolutionaries in the city later that month. He died at Wassenaar, the Netherlands, on 8 September 1881.
