What was day-to-day life like on the Amerois Estate, the holiday home of the Counts of Flanders? The Chronique des Amerois, the journal kept year after year from the summer of 1894 by Princess Henriette, niece of Leopold II, sheds some light on events. Apart from Henriette’s personal notes and drawings, the chronicle also contains contributions from other members of the royal family and its guests, with amusing anecdotes and experiences, fun little poems and even literary exercises, all of which serve to bring the period to life.

In 1869, Europe had lost all trace of David Livingstone, the Scottish doctor and missionary. Livingstone’s explorations on the African continent made him one of the most celebrated figures in the scientific world, notably revealing to Europe the existence of the Victoria Falls and mapping out the course of the Zambezi River. The American journalist Henry M Stanley was commissioned to find Livingstone. He undertook a large-scale expedition as far as Lake Tanganyika, with the firm intention of returning to Europe with both Livingstone and a multitude of discoveries.
