Church of Our Lady of Laeken

Local nameÉglise Notre-Dame de Laeken - Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk van Laken
LocationBrussels, België - Belgique - Belgien

The Church of Our Lady of Laeken is a neo-Gothic Roman Catholic church in Laeken, Brussels, Belgium. It was originally built in memory of Queen Louise-Marie, wife of King Leopold I to the design of architect Joseph Poelaert.

Louise-Marie died in Ostend in 1850 and wished to be buried in Laeken. The nearby Royal Castle of Laeken was, and still is, the royal residence. Leopold I wished the church to be constructed in her memory and as a mausoleum for her. The architect Joseph Poelaert was chosen to design the new church.

Pope Pius XI crowned the venerated Marian image within on 17 May 1936 in the presence of the King Leopold III of Belgium and his royal heirs.
