Historical Origin And Design Inspiration for this one of a kind entry door

The Royal Castle of Laken is the official residence of the King of the Belgians. The castle at Laken was built between 1782-1784 after the plans of the French architect Charles de Wailly under supervision of Louis Montoyer as a summer residence for the Governors of the Habsburg Netherlands, Archduchess Maria Christina of Austria and her husband Albert of Saxe-Teschen.


On 21 July 1803, Nicolas-Jean Rouppe, as commissioner of the department of the Dijle, received Napoleon at the Castle of Laken. Napoleon stayed here with his Empress in August 1804 on his way from awarding the first Legion d'Honneur to his invasion troops at Boulogne to his progress along the Rhine, and later (on invading Belgium during the Hundred Days in 1815) dated this proclamation prematurely from the palace.


"To the Belgians and the inhabitants of the left bank of the Rhine. - The ephemeral success of my enemies detached you for a moment from my empire. In my exile, upon a rock in the sea, I heard your complaint; the God of Battles has decided the fate of your beautiful provinces; Napoleon is among you; you are worthy to be Frenchmen. Rise in a body; join my invincible phalanxes to exterminate the remainder of these barbarians, who are your enemies and mine: they fly with rage and despair in their hearts. - The Imperial Palace of Lacken, 17 June 1815. (Signed) NAPOLEON, The Imperial Palace of Lacken, 17 June 1815. By the Emperor, The Major-General of the Army, Count Bertrand."


Nicolas-Jean Rouppe, as burgomaster of Brussels, received the new king Leopold I of Belgium also at the Castle of Laken on 21 July 1831, the day when Leopold swore allegiance to the Belgian constitution. The French architect Charles Girault gave it its present outline in 1902. It has been the royal residence since the accession to the throne of king Leopold I in 1831. The domain also contains the magnificent Royal Greenhouses of Laeken, a set of monumental dome-shaped constructions. They were designed as well by Alphonse Balat, with the cooperation of the young Victor Horta.
