Name: Albert I
Year, Birth:1875
Year, Death:1934
Profession:King of Belgium (1909-34).

Comments: The nominations in favour of King Albert I seemed to spring from an initiative taken by Sacerdoti, professor and member of the Institute of International Law (and by the lawyer Clunet in Paris?). At first they suggested the Belgian people, but the Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee told them that this nomination would not likely be taken into consideration. Then they nominated King Albert I.
