Guillaume Tell, Küssnacht and Queen Fabiola.


Aged 82 years, Queen Fabiola, Fernanda Maria de las Victorias Antonia Adelaida de Mora y-Aragon, widow of King Baudouin of Belgium (1930-1993) received twice a threatening letter from during the parade of 21 July 2009 addressed to the newspaper "Latest News".
The man "who never misses its target with a super drive in Diksmuide for three months" had threatened to kill the queen recovering with a crossbow.
        
The Mysterious William Tell Belgian lies beneath the letters "EDH" reproached including Queen Fabiola's special love for dictators (Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire, Augusto Pinochet of Chile, Muhammed Reza Palhavi, Shah of Iran), she shook hands full of blood, poisoning the King Baudouin (who died in Spain July 31, 1993), etc..
        
During the parade of July 21, 2009 which took place Place Royale, Queen Fabiola pulled an apple from his bag in reference to William Tell and has exhibited with humor, as if to show she was not afraid of threats.

        
Where is she? In place of Walter, son of the rebel Swiss or that of the Habsburgs who have had marital relations with the Belgian royal family since Leopold II, husband of Archduchess Marie Henriette of Austria?
        
As a reminder, Queen Astrid of Belgium, Princess of Sweden, wife of Leopold of Saxe-Coburg Gotha, mother of the Kings Baudouin I and Albert II, so step-mother of Queen Fabiola died in a car accident in Küssnacht August 29, 1935!

        
Here's to the attention of young Belgians, the legend of William Tell and Küssnacht:
        
William Tell of Bürglen, the Swiss legendary hero of the thirteenth century, living in the mountains of the Canton of Uri was an expert in the use of the crossbow.
        
To prove their loyalty, the people of Altdorf had to bow to the hat of Hermann Gessler, the new Austrian bailiff, capping a post planted in the village of Altdorf.
        
Charged with refusing to bow to an ordinary hat, William Tell was ordered to shoot a crossbow bolt in an apple on the head of his son, Walter, on pain of death for both. He managed his feat and cut the fruit in his first shot without touching the child.
        
But Gessler had seen a second arrow Tell concealed under his shirt and asked him the reason. Tell answered that if the first stroke had missed its target, the second would have been right in the heart of the bailiff.
         Gessler was embarking William Tell to the prison of his castle Küssnacht. The Swiss turned the boat and killed the sheriff in a coup d'Axen crossbow.
        
This heroic episode was the cause of the rebellion of the Swiss against the Habsburgs, which led to the unification of the original cantons (Uri, Schwyz and Nidwalden), and the federal pact on 1 August 1291 and the independence of Switzerland at 24th October 1648.
