Description

This stamp is inspired by the two lions at the entrance of the Luxembourg Town Hall, by the Luxembourgish sculptor August Trémont.

Luxembourg was established in 1815 at the Congress of Vienna. The Grand Duchy was then governed by the King of the Netherlands. Luxembourg had Walloon and German quarters, until the Belgian Revolution in 1830.

Subsequently, the country was integrated into the fledgling Belgium state, with the exception of its capital city – Luxembourg, which remained loyal to the King of the Netherlands and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. In 1839, the major powers (Austria, France, United Kingdom, Prussia and Russia) met in London, and signed the Treaty of London bringing about the separation of Belgium and the Netherlands.

Germanic Luxembourg was returned to King and Grand Duke William I. The Walloon part of Luxembourg was annexed to Belgium. The definitive borders of the Grand Duchy were established in 1843.
