Comments: The nominations in favour of AlbertI were the result of the initiative taken in 1915 by Sacerdoti and possibly the lawyer Clunet from Paris. At first they had suggested the Belgian people, but the Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee told them that this nomination would not likely be taken into consideration. They then nominated the Belgian King Albert I.
