Leuvis II signature

Leuvis II, born Leuvis Van Damme (5 May 1470 - 11 October 1533), was the second King of Brunant from 1503-1533. He was the son of Leuvis Van Damme and Caroline Koch. He had seven daughters and three sons of which the eldest, Anders I, became king upon his death.

Leuvis was the first Brunanter monarch to marry into nobility, and the first to be recognized in Europe.

In the 1520s, Leuvis began planning an invasion of Rose Island. In 1533, after months of planning, he led a force of 2,800 soldiers to invade Rose Island. He met heavy resistance from the Spanish soldiers and during battle, the king was mortally wounded. Taken to a nearby farmhouse, Leuvis II spent the night in great pain and died the following morning. He was buried in the churchyard at the Spanish Church in order to prevent the Spanish from capturing his body. Later, his body was exhumed and reburied at the Grijzestad Cathedral.
