Since the creation of the kingdom on February 25, 1831, Belgium has known seven queens of the Belgians.
It is said that one of these 7 queens, named Marie-Henriette d'Autriche, inaugurated the place of Agora, in the center of Brussels, a few meters from the Grand Place. It hosts a late twentieth century fountain celebrating the memory of the major Charles Buls, recognized for his defense of arts and heritage in Brussels. He is responsible for preserving much of the historic heritage of central Brussels, including the Grand Place, at a time when this concern is far from shared by the majority of his contemporaries.
It is on this place that will be born one century later "La Brasserie de la Reine".
