Association Égyptologique Reine Élisabeth
Egyptologisch Genootschap Koningin Elisabeth
The Association Égyptologique Reine Élisabeth was founded by Jean Capart in memory of Queen Élisabeth's visit to the tomb of Tutankhamun, on February 18, 1923. Its main purpose was to stimulate egyptological and papyrological research in Belgium.
Over the years the association has become a scholarly institution, which promotes the study of the history and civilisation of Pharaonic, Graeco-Roman, Christian and Arabic Egypt.
