Liszt entertained over the years a special relationship with Belgium.
In February 1841, Liszt first toured Belgium where he again met the piano virtuoso Marie Pleyel to whom Chopin had dedicated Nocturnes Op. 9. She became in 1848 professor of piano at the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles (today with a Flemish counterpart). Liszt returned to Belgium in 1842 and 1854. He developed close relations with the family of the Belgian cellist François Servais. In 1861, he met Comtesse de Mercy-Argenteau, daughter of Prince de Chimay.
