Farmer expands Belgium's territory by accident

The boundary between France and Belgium is believed to have been inadvertently redrawn by a farmer who found the 200-year-old border stone marking the divide in an inconvenient location for his tractor.

The Belgian farmer could theoretically face criminal charges after making Belgium bigger by moving the stone that has marked the border since after the defeat of Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo.

A local amateur historian taking a walk in forest near to the Belgian village of Erquelinnes discovered two weeks ago that the stone dating back to 1819 had been moved 2.29 metres (7.5ft). The farmer’s perimeter fence had also been shifted.

While amused by the enlargement of his town, David Lavaux, the mayor of Erquelinnes, gently pointed out that the farmer was legally obliged to move the border stone back – and that it would be best not “to create a diplomatic incident”.

Maybe it's lost in translation, but neither of the two mayors seemed to think it was very funny even though they kept saying it was very funny. Weird

Btw, last time this happened was when Poland ''invaded'' Czechia last year. :deadbanana:

In late May 2020, Polish Military troops arriving from Pielgrzymów crossed the Hrozová stream marking the border with Czechia, and unintentionally occupied a few dozen meters of Czech territory in the former village of Pelhřimovy, near the town of Slezské Rudoltice.
