List of members of the National Congress of Belgium

This is a list of members of the National Congress of Belgium. The National Congress was the constituent assembly of Belgium, sitting from 1830 to 1831. It had 200 members, elected on 3 November 1830 to represent modern Belgium, Luxembourg, and Limburg. When those elected died or resigned from the Congress, substitutes took their places, meaning that a total of 236 people sat in the Congress.

These people represented a range of political opinions. Orangists favoured reconciliation with the Netherlands, whilst Unionists favoured secession and union with France.
