Narrative

Fue explorada en 1898 por la Expedición Antártica Belga, al mando del teniente Adrien de Gerlache, quien le dio el nombre, debido probablemente, a la extensión histórica de éste, ya que forma parte de Francia, Bélgica y Holanda. Amplia bahía situada entre los cabos Renard y Willems, en la costa W de la península Tierra de O'Higgins. La bahía es profunda, limpia, de fondo irregular, presenta gran cantidad de hielos flotantes a la deriva que por lo general la cubren casi totalmente. Al interior de la bahía se forman numerosas ensenadas, en las cuales descargan glaciares, rodeados de elevadas montañas.
