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.
