I decided to put together a list of places where people can find information about the GD family.
which is where all Grand Ducal Decrees are published. All government actions are published here large and small, so do not go here assuming all the information will be about the family. Generally, decrees dealing with the family such as titles, names, succession are published in section A. This website is in French as all coded laws and decrees are published in French.
The Offical Website
of the Grand Ducal Court of Luxembourg. This website is generally well updated on the engagements within a few days. It also has biographical sections on several of the senior members. The bio info on Felix is updated frequently. It is also a good source for information on the family and the monarchy. This website is, unfortunately, only in French.
section of Dag Hoelseth's extensive webpage on royal matters. This is an excellent source for information on various matters concerning the family titles, succession, surname, locations, ect... The information is listed in English with notes where other languages are used.
Paul Theroff's excellent online gotha
has a section on Luxembourg
. It is in English and is update as of today (August 3, 2009). View the link for gotha to see the decendants of Princesses who have married into other noble/royal families (Habsbourg, Liechtenstein, Ligne, ect..)
Netty's Royalty Page
is an another excellent source for royal news, information and updates (her forum is also superb).
Henri van Oene's Royal Genealogies
has a good section on Luxembourg
. It is not up-to-date as of today, but remains a valuable source for detailed information. More detailed than Theroff but not as updated.
The blog of Marlene Koenig
a respected and well connected royal author should always be among the first stops for anyone looking for day-to-day updates. She is well informed and frequently has information before it is released to the press.
a photographer who often covers events. And, has extensive galleries featuring royals from Luxembourg often before they are listed on the offical website.
a Luxembourg photograher who has extensive galleries featuring the GD and extended family. Visit the archive and use the search function. He does not appreciate having his photos directly linked to the forum so please just direct people to his site to visit them there.
EIN Luxembourg News
(Radio Television Luxembourg) - German
ARA City Radio
- multi Languages
- multi listing of websites in multi languages.
- use search function
- German ALWAYS features mutliple articles on various members of the family whether they are on the cover or not. You may buy back issues/view old covers here
. They will mail them to you with no shipping charge or deliver them to you as PDF files online. Along the left side of the website you can visit the sites of other tabloids in Luxembourg. All the tabloids seem to be owned by the same company. We should really start a PDF trade if anyone else has these b/c it is perfectly legal to email and share the issues just as you can share a print magazine, but they can't be hosted and linked to the forum.
I've chosen not to list foreign tabloids b/c almost all the "tabloid" news about the GD family can be sourced back to Promi.
There are numerous other respected and some not so respected forums and message boards that feature daily information on the family. Generally, they can be accessed by navigating around sites Like Netty's that have extensive links sections.
I'm sure I'll remember some more later. I just thought I'd toss out some links for those who like to keep up with Luxembourg news.
