Category: History

Here you can find a number of articles on various historical topics. Heavily featured is the First World War and its impact on Belgium, such as How did it all begin, and What happened after the Armistice?

I also cover the rise and fall of the Flemish cloth industry, and various processions that commemorate historical events, such as the procession of the Holy Blood in Bruges.

Much more is covered, although Belgium has such a rich history that I would need a whole blog to even touch on it.
