A Belgian artist who says she is the daughter of Belgium’s former King Albert II has asked a court to establish the identity of her biological father. 

Delphine Boel, 46, has been fighting for more than a decade to gain acceptance by the royal family.

Boel’s lawyer, Alain De Jonge, has previously said that the court would initially examine whether her legal father, Jacques Boel, is a biological parent. De Jonge said a recently conducted paternity test showed that he was not.

Albert abdicated last year to be succeeded by his son Philippe.
