Late evening: King Albert calls a Crown Council

Posted on August 2nd, 1914 by admin

Late evening: King Albert calls a Crown Council with his ministers. It goes on through the night. There is heated argument but not on whether or not to accept the German ultimatum. They are all agreed it should be rejected. The argument is over how best to resist the Germans. Should they fight near the border or withdraw into the interior of Belgium.
They decide to immediately ask the Guaranteeing Powers for diplomatic support but not to ask for military support until an invasion begins.
