With roots stretching back to the 10th century, Luxembourg was officially declared independent as the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg on March 15, 1815 upon the demise of Napoleonic France. |
Luxembourg developed as a world-renowned steel manufacturing center, later diversifying itself into Europe's most powerful investment management center as the steel industry waned.
Luxembourgish, a derivation of German, is one of the country's three main languages.
