Former king is refusing to undergo DNA test to disprove womans claims he is her father
King Albert II, who abdicated from the Belgian throne six years ago, is to be fined 5,000 (4,370) for every day that he refuses to undergo a DNA test to disprove claims he fathered a child during an extramarital affair in the 1960s.
An appeals court made the order after rejecting Alberts attempts to delay giving a saliva sample, in the latest twist of a long-running paternity claim by a 50-year-old artist, Delphine Bol.
Bol has been fighting in the courts for six years to get proof that Albert, 84, is her biological father. If she is able to prove paternity she could take the name Delphine Van Belgi and, by royal decree, the title of princess. She would also be entitled to one-eighth of Alberts estate, half of which is reserved for his children.
