History Talk: The Early Years of Luxembourg
Free – $15.00
Learn about Luxembourg’s early history, long before it became an independent country.
The name/word ‘Luxembourg’ can be found in texts as early as 963AD. In the modern age, we typically look to the last 200 years of Luxembourg’s history. But, Luxembourg has a rich history that goes beyond just 200 years ago.
Board Member Marc Klein will discuss the history of Luxembourg from 963 to 1443 when the Duchy passed control to The Duke of Burgundy, Philip the Good. Marc will talk about the first sovereigns from the House of Luxembourg, the four emperors from the House of Luxembourg, and the last years before the Duchy became part of Burgund.
