Luxembourg grand duchy in Western Europe

Luxembourg, officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is a small landlocked country in western Europe. It is bordered by Belgium to the west and north, Germany to the east, and France to the south. Its capital, Luxembourg City, is one of the three official capitals of the European Union and the seat of the European Court of Justice, the highest judicial authority in the EU. Its culture, people, and languages are highly intertwined with its neighbours, making it essentially a mixture of French and German cultures, as evident by the nation's three official languages: French, German, and the national language, Luxembourgish. The repeated invasions by Germany, especially in World War II, resulted in the country's strong will for mediation between France and Germany and, among other things, led to the foundation of the European Union.



Eberhard was born in Luxembourg City.

He was a member of the Chamber of Deputies from 1851 to 1854 and of the Assemblée des États from 1857 to 1866. [2] He served as an échevin of Luxembourg City from 1850 to 1854 and from 1859 to 1865, then as mayor of the city between 1865 and 1869.

Chamber of Deputies (Luxembourg) parliament of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg

The Chamber of Deputies, abbreviated to the Chamber, is the unicameral national legislature of Luxembourg. Krautmaart is sometimes used as a metonym for the Chamber, after the square on which the Hôtel de la Chambre is located.

An échevin, sometimes translated as alderman, is a member of the administration of a Luxembourgian commune. Together, they form the collège échevinal, which helps the mayor run the administration. In most communes, échevins have designated roles within the administration, adopting separate briefs as in a cabinet.

Eberhard died in Luxembourg City on May 12, 1874 at the age of 61.

A street in the Belair district of Luxembourg City is named after him.

Architecture of Luxembourg

The architecture of Luxembourg probably extends back to the Treveri, a Celtic tribe who prospered in the 1st century BC. A few ruins remain from the Roman occupation but the most significant contributions over the centuries have been the country's castles and churches. Today there is a veritable architectural boom as Luxembourg's economic prosperity provides a basis for developments in the financial, EU and cultural sectors with a number of world-class buildings.
