Wikipedia, February 6, 2014 (Sylvain Van de Weyer; Jean-Sylvain Van de Weyer was a Belgian politician and the Belgian Minister at the Court of St. James (effectively the ambassador to the United Kingdom); Van de Weyer was born in Louvain (Leuven) on January 19, 1802; he studied law at the State University of Louvain and set up as a lawyer in Brussels in 1823; he frequently defended newspapers and journalists which fell foul of the government of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands; during the Belgian Revolution in 1830 he became a member of the central committee of the Provisional Government of Belgium; his command of the English language resulted in him serving as a diplomatic representative of the revolutionaries; King Leopold I appointed Van de Weyer his special representative in London; Van de Weyer later served as the eighth Prime Minister of Belgium (July 30, 1845-March 31, 1846); he was Vice-President of the London Library from 1848 until his death in London on May 23, 1874
