Patrick Paul François Marie Ghislain, Count d'Udekem d'Acoz (Uccle, 28 April 1936 - Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve, 25 September 2008) was a Belgian nobleman and father of Queen Mathilde of Belgium.[1] Queen Mathilde is the wife of Philippe, King of the Belgians.

He was a son of Charles Joseph Marie Ghislain, Baron d'Udekem d'Acoz (Ghent, 8 March 1885 - Proven, 7 December 1968), and his second wife, (m. Proven, 4 February 1933) Suzanne Marie Désirée Ghislaine Josephe van Outryve d'Ydewalle (Wingene, 22 June 1898 - Ypres, 6 April 1983). Upon the marriage of his daughter Princess Mathilde, he was created Count d'Udekem d'Acoz on 4 December 1999.

Count d'Udekem d'Acoz married Countess[2] Anna Maria Komorowska (b. Białogard, 23 September 1946) civilly in Forville on 1 September 1971 and religiously in Hannut on 11 September 1971.[1] She was a daughter of Count[2] Leon Michal Komorowski (Siedliska, 14 August 1907 - 1992) and his wife (m. Warszawa, 25 July 1942), Princess Zofia Sapieżanka (Bobrek, 10 October 1919 - Herstal, 14 August 1997). The couple had five children:[1]

Count Patrick d'Udekem d'Acoz became seriously ill beginning in January 2008.[1] His brother, Henri d'Udekem d'Acoz, revealed that Patrick had fallen into an irreversible coma and was dying of the progressive disease in March 2008.[1] The illness and coma caused Patrick to miss awareness of the birth of his granddaughter, Princess Eléonore of Belgium, April 2008.[1] Princess Eléonore, the fourth child of Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde, was born in the same hospital where Patrick was being treated for his illness.[1]

Count Patrick d'Udekem d'Acoz died on 25 September 2008, at a neurological center in Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, at the age of 72. He was survived by his wife and four children.[1]
