Queen Fabiola of the Belgians died on December 5, 2014, in Stuyvenberg Castle, in Brussels, aged 86. She was queen consort to King Baudouin who reigned from 1951 until his death in 1993. The queen, who along with her late husband, was noted for being a devout Roman Catholic, was born Fabiola de Mora y Aragon in Madrid, Spain, the daughter of the Marques de Casa Riera and Count of Mora. She married King Baudouin in December 1960. Sadly, the couple remained childless. Despite having suffered five miscarriages, Queen Fabiola admitted that, “I myself lost five children. You learn from that experience. . . but you know, in the end I think life is beautiful.” Photos by Getty Images.
