Number 16 of the Wetstraat/Rue de la Loi in Brussels is famously the residence of the Belgian prime minister

This is a list of Prime Ministers of Belgium, known regionally as: Eerste Minister in Dutch, Premier Ministre in French, and Premierminister in German.

Although Leaders of Government (French: Chefs de Cabinet) had been appointed since the independence of the country, until 1918 the King often presided over the Council of Ministers, so the modern era of the "Premiership" started after WWI with Léon Delacroix.
