Of the handful of European countries still retaining a monarchy, only one of them is ruled by someone other than a King or Queen, and that is Luxembourg. This small country, which is below 1,000 square miles in size, has a Duke and his Duchess at the head of the family. The Luxembourg royal family is unconventional in both rule and history.

Ruled by a Grand Duke

Luxembourg is headed by a Grand Duke and a Grand Duchess, not a King or Queen. In 1815, Luxembourg was formed following the defeat of Napoléon. At that point, the Grand Duchy was created. Because of the existing union with the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the King of that country also ruled Luxembourg. When the King died, he left only a daughter to succeed him. Luxembourg law didn't allow a female to rule, so the country was left without a head. Adolphe of Nassau then took over as Grand Duke, and his lineage continues to rule in modern times.

Grand Duke Henri

Grand Duke Henri has been the head of Luxembourg for 20+ years. He was born in 1955 to Hereditary Grand Duke Jean and Hereditary Grand Joséphine-Charlotte. He was educated in both France and Luxembourg and later underwent military officer training at Sandhurst. Duke Henri attended the University of Geneva, where he studied political science.

It was during his university years where he met his future bride, Maria Teresa Mestre y Batista. The couple married in 1981 and have five children together. As a member of the royal family, the Grand Duke doesn't draw a salary for his duties. However, this isn't much of a concern because the Duke's net worth hovers in the $4 billion range.

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa was born on Cuban soil. She and her family fled the island nation during the Cuban revolution. They first settled in New York and then later lived overseas in Spain and Geneva, Switzerland. She studied at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, earning a degree in political science. However, the greater prize was that it was during her studies that she met her future husband, the Grand Duke.

As Grand Duchess, Maria Teresa has done much to aid her people. Both the Duke and the Duchess have set up foundations to help those with special needs integrate into society. She has worked closely with UNESCO, helping young women work battle poverty, and has been appointed as the UNICEF Eminent Advocate for Children.

Recent allegations have clouded the reputation of Grand Duchess Maria Teresa. In 2020, the Prime Minister of Luxembourg looked into the Cour le Grand Ducal regarding reported misdeeds. It was noted that nearly 1/3 of the ducal staff had left and that there was a culture of fear regarding the Duchess. The accusations went as far as to allege abuse on behalf of the Duchess. She was further accused of using public funds for her personal website.

Guillaume, Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg

Following Duke Henri's seat as head of Luxembourg, his son Guillaume will someday take his place. Guillaume, born in 1981, is the first son of the Grand Duke and Duchess. He studied at University College, Durham, and Brunel University and later received a bachelor's degree from The University of Angers. He received his military education at Sandhurst and joined the Luxembourg army as a colonel.

He wed Belgian Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy in 2012, and the couple gave birth to their first child, Prince Charles, in May of 2020. When he is not busy being a new father, the Hereditary Duke devotes his time to causes dear to his heart through charity work.

Prince Félix of Luxembourg

Prince Félix is the second-born child in the royal family. Born in 1984, he completed his primary educational studies and went on to join the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. A sudden injury forced him out of the program early, and he continued learning and studying at various institutes across the globe, including England, Belgium, and Rome.

In 2013, Prince Félix wed German bioethics researcher, Claire Lademacher. The pair live in the south of France along with their young children, Princess Amalia, Gabriela Maria Theresa, and Prince Liam Henri Hartmut.

Prince Louis of Luxembourg

Prince Louis is the third child born to the Grand Duke and Duchess. Following his studies, he became very involved in humanitarian work and causes, working with impoverished populations in India. Upon his return to his homeland, he continued his calling at Red Cross in Geneva. He later studied at Richmond, The American International University in London, earning a degree in Art in Communications. Then, he at Birkbeck College in London, where he received a master's degree in psychosocial studies.

Prince Louis and Tessy Antony met during their time in the army. They welcomed their first child, and the Duke and Duchess's first grandchild, into the world in 2006. Following the birth of their child, the couple wed and went on to have a second son. Upon his marriage to Tessy, Prince Louis gave up all of his ducal rights and the rights of any descendants. The couple divorced in 2019, and she has since remarried.

Recently, Prince Louis announced that he is engaged to be wed for a second time to Scarlett-Lauren Sirgue.

Prince Sébastien of Luxembourg

Prince Sébastien is the fifth child in the family. Following his younger years, the prince attended Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio, where he majored in marketing and international business. Following his college education, he went on to do a 44-month military program at Sandhurst, as his brothers and father before him did. He serves his military as a platoon commander in the Irish Guards. He is sixth in line for the throne.

Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg

Of the five children born to the Grand Duke and Duchess, Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg is the only daughter. Forth born, she is a well-studied lady who focused on learning psychology and social sciences in the United States before earning a degree in Paris focused on philosophy. She also holds a master's degree in interreligious studies with an emphasis on conflict resolution.

Princess Alexandra worked in the Middle East in journalism and has devoted much energy to helping refugees who have been displaced from their homes.

Rulers of the Greatest Country on Earth?

All rulers likely think that their country is the very best one out there, but in the case of Luxembourg, it might actually be the best of the best. There is a lot to love about the tiny country. It has the highest minimum wage in Europe and the second-highest in the world. It also has the second-highest GDP in the world and the unemployment rates in Luxembourg are the lowest in all of Europe. Economically, this place really is knocking it out of the ballpark.

They are a progressive nation as well. The country's prime minister, Xavier Bettel, was the first European Union leader to wed someone of the same sex. Over 80% of the people in this nation supported the notion of same-sex marriage. The country also opens its door wide to people from other parts of the world. An astounding 43% of the nation's population are considered immigrants.

Duke and Duchess

While the country doesn't have a flashy King and Queen making headlines, they are doing a whole lot right. maybe every country should be run by a Duke and a Duchess?

Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg

The Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg constitutes the House of Luxembourg-Nassau,[1] headed by the sovereign Grand Duke, and in which the throne of the grand duchy is hereditary. It consists of heirs and descendants of the House of Nassau-Weilburg, whose sovereign territories passed cognatically from the House of Nassau to a cadet branch of the House of Bourbon-Parma, itself a branch of the Spanish Royal House which is agnatically a cadet branch of the House of Capet that originated in France. This is descended from the Capetian dynasty – itself a derivative dynasty from the Robertians.

History[edit]

In 1443 the last member of the senior branch of the House of Luxemburg, Duchess Elisabeth, sold the Duchy of Luxembourg to Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy, a prince of the French House of Valois. In 1477 the duchy passed by marriage of Philip's granddaughter, Mary of Burgundy, to Archduke Maximilian I of Austria of the House of Habsburg. Luxembourg was one of the fiefdoms in the former Burgundian Netherlands which Maximilian and Mary's grandson, Emperor Charles V, combined into an integral union, the Seventeen Provinces, by issuing the Pragmatic Sanction of 1549. The southern Netherlands remained part of the Habsburg Empire, first held by the Spanish branch and then by the Austrian line, until 1794 when French revolutionaries replaced Habsburg rule with French hegemony until the defeat of Napoleon.

Luxembourg's territories, centering on the ancestral castle, were taken[by whom?] from occupying French forces in the first stages of the fall of Napoleon. Some were eventually ceded to William VI of Nassau, Prince of Orange, who had been declared Sovereign Prince of the Netherlands in 1813, by his cousin King Frederick William III of Prussia who annexed other territories which had been held by princes of the various branches of the House of Nassau.[2] The Great Powers agreed at the Congress of Vienna in 1815 to re-constitute and elevate Luxembourg into a grand duchy, to be hereditary in the male line of the entire House of Nassau, beginning with the Prince of Orange, who was simultaneously but separately recognised as King of the Netherlands.

Thus William I of the Netherlands ascended the grand ducal throne as the first Grand Duke of Luxemburg. When the male line of the House of Orange-Nassau became extinct in 1890, the crown of the Netherlands went to his descendant, Wilhelmina of Orange-Nassau, but the crown of Luxembourg continued in the male line, devolving upon the head of the only surviving branch of the House of Nassau, ex-Duke Adolf of Nassau-Weilburg. His son, Guillaume IV (reigned 1905–1912), left no sons and was succeeded by his daughters, Marie-Adélaïde and then by Charlotte (reigned 1919–1964). Her descendants (from her marriage to Prince Felix of Bourbon-Parma) comprise the Grand Ducal House in the 21st century.

Titulature[edit]

The monarch bears the style of Royal Highness (subsumed in the higher style of Majesty that was borne by its sovereigns during the personal union of the Grand Duchy with the Kingdom of the Netherlands until 1890), to which the heir apparent is also entitled.[3] The other male-line descendants of Grand Duke Adolphe held the titles "Prince/Princess of Luxembourg" and "Prince/Princess of Nassau", with the style of Grand Ducal Highness.[3] Until 1995, the daughters and male-line issue of Grand Duchess Charlotte also bore the title of "Prince/Princess of Bourbon-Parma" and were addressed as Royal Highness, in right of their descent from her consort, Prince Felix of Bourbon-Parma.[3]

On 28 July 1987, by grand ducal decree, members of the dynasty assumed the surname "de Nassau" and discontinued use of the princely title and inescutcheon of the House of Bourbon-Parma (the Dukes of which had not consented to the marriages to commoners of the dynasts of their Luxembourg cadet branch, Prince Charles in 1967 and Hereditary Grand Duke Henri in 1981),[4] while retaining the style of Royal Highness.[3]

Since the grand ducal decree of 21 September 1995, dynasts who are the children of a Grand Duke or Hereditary Grand Duke hold the titles "Prince/Princess of Luxembourg" and "Prince/Princess of Nassau" with the style of Royal Highness.[3] Shortly after his accession to the throne in October 2000, Grand Duke Henri issued a grand ducal decree conferring upon his eldest son and heir, Prince Guillaume, the title of "Hereditary Grand Duke" and restoring to him the title "Prince of Bourbon-Parma".[5] Male line descendants of Grand Duchess Charlotte who are not the children of a Grand Duke or Hereditary Grand Duke are "Prince/Princess of Nassau" with the style of His/Her Royal Highness.[3]

A grand ducal decree in 2012, concerning the family pact, further defined the rules of titles borne.[6]

The wives, children and male-line descendants of a prince of the dynasty whose marriage has not received grand ducal consent are "Count/Countess de Nassau".[3]

Religion[edit]

Grand Dukes Adolphe (1817–1905) and William IV (1852–1912) were Evangelical Christians. William married the Roman Catholic Marie Anne of Portugal, believing that a country in which the great majority of people were Roman Catholic should also have a Roman Catholic monarch. In 1907, William declared the Evangelical Counts of Merenberg to be non-dynastic and named his own Roman Catholic daughter, Marie-Adélaïde (1894–1924), heiress to the grand ducal throne; she in 1919 abdicated in favour of her sister, Charlotte (1896–1985), who was also Roman Catholic, and Charlotte's Roman Catholic descendants have reigned in Luxembourg ever since.

However, although Roman Catholicism is the claimed faith of the overwhelming majority of the Luxembourgish people (ca. 90-93%), it does not have the status of a State religion, nor is there any legal or constitutional obligation for the Grand Duke (as head of state) to be Roman Catholic.

Succession to the throne[edit]

Main article: Line of succession to the throne of Luxembourg

The preference for men over women in succession to Luxembourg's throne was abandoned in favour of absolute primogeniture on 20 June 2011 by decree of Grand Duke Henri.[10] Henceforth, any legitimate female descendant of the House of Luxembourg-Nassau born of authorized marriage shall inherit the throne by order of seniority of line of descent and of birth as stipulated in Article 3 of the Constitution and the Nassau Family Pact without regard to gender, applicable first to succession by the descendants of Grand Duke Henri.[11] The Grand Duke's Marshal issued an addendum to the decree explaining the context of the change: pursuant to the United Nation's 1979 call for nations to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women, in 2008 the Grand Duchy dropped the exception to gender non-discrimination it had declared in the matter of the grand ducal succession.[12]
