Princess Elisabeth of Belgium (Élisabeth Thérèse Marie Hélène, born 25 October 2001 in Anderlechtmarker) is the eldest daughter of Prince Philippe, Duke of Brabant, the heir apparent to the throne of Belgium, and his wife Princess Mathilde. She is a granddaughter of Albert II, King of the Belgians and Queen Paola.


She was born in Anderlechtmarker, Brusselsmarker. Ten years prior to her birth, a new act of succession was put into effect which created full lineal primogeniture. If she ascends the throne, she will be Belgium's first queen regnant.

Elisabeth's godparents are Prince Amedeo of Belgium, her cousin, and Countess Hélène d'Udekem d'Acoz, her aunt.

The eldest son of the heir apparent was traditionally titled 'Count of Hainautmarker ' (Dutch: Graaf van Henegouwen). It was therefore expected that a new royal decree would be issued, granting the title of Countess of Hainaut to Princess Elisabeth. A royal decree was indeed issued, but, despite all predictions, it didn't grant her the title but abolished the title, because it was not linguistically neutral.


  • Elisabeth is for her great-great-grandmother Elisabeth of Bavaria.
  • Thérèse is for
  • Marie is for the Virgin Mary as per tradition with Catholic Royalty.
  • Hélène is for her maternal aunt and godmother Countess Hélène d'Udekem d'Acoz.

As a descendant of the Czartoryski and Sanguszko princes, she is related to the Gediminids, has connections to the Jagiellon royal dynasty, (which reigned in Poland, Lithuania, Hungary and Bohemia) as well as connections to various Russian princely families, such as Galitzines and Trubetskoy.

She has two younger brothers, Prince Gabriel and Prince Emmanuel, and a younger sister, Princess Eléonore.
