Belgium: William Tell, Küssnacht and Queen Fabiola.

Born on 11 June 1928, Queen consort of the Belgians, Fabiola, Fernanda Maria de las Victorias Antonia Adelaida de Mora y-Aragon, widow of King Baudouin of Belgium (1930-1993) received twice a letter of threat during the parade of 21 July 2009 addressed to the newspaper "last hour".
         The man "who never misses its target with a super drive Dixmude for three months"
had threatened to kill the queen recovering with a crossbow.
         The Mysterious Belgian William Tell lies beneath the letters EDH accused including Queen Fabiola's special love for dictators (Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire, Augusto Pinochet of Chile, Muhamed Palhavi Reza, 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? Instead of Walter, son of the Swiss rebel or that of the Habsburgs who have had marital relations with the Belgian royal family since Leopold II, husband of the Archduchess Marie Henriette of Austria?
         As a reminder, Queen Astrid of Belgium, Princess of Sweden, wife of Leopold of Saxe-Coburg Gotha, mother of Kings Baudouin I and Albert II, thus stepmother of Queen Fabiola died in a car accident in Küssnacht (Switzerland) 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 condemned to shoot a crossbow bolt into an apple on the head of his son, Walter, on pain of death for both. He managed his feat and cut the fruit in its first shot without touching the child.
         But Gessler saw that Tell had a second arrow 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 condemn William Tell him to board the prison of his castle Küssnacht. The Swiss turned the boat and killed the bailiff 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 Unterwalden), and further the independence of Switzerland.
