Belloc was also a soldier, an orator, a poet, a sailor, a satirist, and a writer of letters, a sailor, and a poet. His Catholic beliefs had a big impact on what he wrote. Belloc became a British citizen by naturalization in 1902, but he kept his French citizenship. He was President of the Oxford Union while he was at Oxford. From 1906 to 1910, he was one of the few people in the British Parliament who said they were Catholic. Belloc was known for getting into fights, and he had a few that went on for a long time. He was also close with G. K. Chesterton and worked with him. George Bernard Shaw, who was friends with both Belloc and Chesterton and often argued with them, called them "Chesterbelloc" because they often argued with each other. Belloc wrote everything from religious poetry to funny verses for kids. His Cautionary Tales for Children were very popular.
