King of Belgium Albert I born as Albert Léopold Clément Marie Meinrad dies in a mountaineering accident while climbing alone at the age of 59 in Rocher du Vieux Bon Dieu, Marche-les-Dames, Namur, Belgium.

Because King Albert I was an expert climber some questioned the official version of his death and suggested that the King was murdered (or even committed suicide) somewhere else and that his body had never been at Marche-les-Dames, or that it was deposited there. In 2016 DNA testing on bloodstained leaves collected from Marche-les-Dames concluded that King Albert I died at that location.
