An absolutely beautiful Belgian Order of Leopold II here. Commander's grade of the order, complete with it's original award box. Maker marked by Fonson. This is the bilingual version of the order, featuring a center medallion that reads "Unity Is Strength" in French (L'union fait la force) and in Dutch (Eendracht maakt macht). In excellent condition overall with the only real wear being to the box, visible in photos. 


The Order of Leopold II is an order of Belgium and is named in honor of King Léopold II. The decoration was established on 24 August 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 personal goodwill. It can be awarded to both Belgians and foreigners.
