(Enkele dagen later op 23 december 1909 wordt Albert I koning der Belgen. Hij blijft aan de troon tot 17 februari 1934. Voor zijn troonsbestijging werd hij in het Nederlands veelal Albrecht genoemd.)

(Zes weken later op 26 januari 1910 treedt de Seine buiten haar oevers, waardoor de Parijse metro onder water loopt. Er is overal elektrisch licht en de hotels zijn op het electriciteitsnet aangesloten. Er is een ondergrondse, de Métro en een spoorwegsysteem dat het belangrijkste van Europa is. De Franse regering is zich er terdege van bewust dat de Seine waarschijnlijk buiten zijn oevers zal treden en richt een departement op om het probleem aan te pakken. Ze hebben de kades versterkt en hebben al het mogelijke geregeld. De Seine vaagt het in een klap allemaal weg. Na de grote overstroming wordt besloten om dammen te bouwen in de rivieren die in de Seine uitmonden, om zo het waterpeil te kunnen reguleren. De overstromingramp wordt ook wel de Titanic van Parijs genoemd.)
