The Belgica is the name of two Belgian research vessels, with a name derived from the Latin Gallia Belgica. The ship and her crew became the first to spend winter on the Antarctic when she became stuck in the ice on 28 February 1898. Only 13 months later, after clearing a canal, did the crew manage to free the ship and return to Antwerp, Belgium on 5 November 1899. The ship was later bought by the Duc d'Orléans who sailed with Adrien de Gerlache on several other expeditions. The Belgica remained in service until 1913.
