I remember reading about the fact that this whole "Congo Free State" as it was called (insane name for a slave state!!) was the Personal Property of the Belgian King Leopold. Not the nation's property...his own, personal property. Think about that for a minute, how crazy that is..that's like what, bigger than all of france for sure and probably even bigger right? What a vicious psychopathic move. The climate of unreality the royals must have been living in...detachment from reality...I've heard some other bad things about the Belgian royals but I guess that's a different topic. Anyway, have they ever really admitted it or aplogized or anything?
