Belgium, Kingdom. An Order of Leopold II, V Knight, c.1935

(Dutch: Orde van Leopold II, French: Ordre de Léopold II). Instituted in 1900. Type II (1908-on). In silver with blue and black enamels, measuring 39.5 mm (w) x 62 mm (h) inclusive of its crown suspension, intact enamels, replacement ribbon, extremely fine.

 

Footnote: The Order of Leopold II is an order of Belgium and is named in honour of King Léopold II. The decoration was established on August 24, 1900 by Leopold II as king of the Congo Free State and was in 1908, upon Congo being handed over to Belgium, incorporated into the Belgian awards system. The order is awarded for meritorious service to the sovereign of Belgium, and as a token of his personal goodwill. It can be awarded to both Belgians and foreigners, and is seen as diplomatic gift of merit. The order has become a long service order for people in the civil service and is awarded alternatively with the Order of the Crown, as the Order of Leopold is awarded under rarer circumstances. The order currently stands third after the Order of Leopold (1st) and the Order of the Crown (2nd) in the Belgian honors hierarchy. The Order of Leopold II is awarded by royal decree, in five grades: Grand Cross, Grand Officer, Commander, Officer and Knight, along with three medals (Gold, Silver and Bronze).
