Leopold II - difficult issue to find in Unc. This issue came in two language legends, this is the Dutch (or Flemish?) version. Both versions saw 3 M struck.
It turns out that this King of Belgium is considered like the forth world mass people killer in history. Just behind Adolph Hitler (~17 Million total), Leopold II is responsible for something like 15 million dead in the Belgian Congo. To be fair though, he might not have known the full extent of the death count during his reign. His henchmen sent to control the natives, exploit their land (rubber, coffee, cocoa) and enslave them to work on these plantations knew full well the death they caused under the auspices of Leopold II.
