The results of the new study might help put to bed some conspiracy theories that claim Albert was the victim of murder, not a climbing accident. Albert, who ruled from 1909 until his death, was celebrated for his role in World War I, as he refused to let German troops through Belgium to attack France.</p><br clear="all"/>
