The Constitution of Luxembourg is the supreme law of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The modern constitution was adopted on 17 October 1868.[1]

Whilst the constitution of 1868 marked a radical change in Luxembourg's constitutional settlement, it was technically an amendment of the original constitution. That original constitution was promulgated on 12 October 1841,[2] came into effect on 1 January 1842,[3] and was acutely amended on 20 March 1848,[4] and again on 27 November 1856.[5]

List of amendments

  • 15 May 1919 - National sovereignty was transferred from the monarch to the nation (French: La puissance souveraine réside dans la Nation) (Article 32). The monarch's powers to command the armed forces and to sign treaties were reaffirmed, provided that the treaty was not secret and that the Chamber of Deputies ratified it (Article 37). All changes to Luxembourg's territory were required to be ratified by law (Article 37).[6]
  • 28 April 1948 - The Grand Duchy was defined as a 'free, independent, and indivisible state' (French: un Etat libre, indépendant et indivisible), removing reference to, and therefore ending, its long-standing political neutrality (Article 1).[7]
  • 6 May 1948 - The regulation of language use in legal and judicial affairs became regulated by statute, rather than requiring the equal treatment of French and German (Article 29).[8]
  • 15 May 1948 - Suffrage was restricted to Luxembourgers living in Luxembourg, aged over 21 and in possession of their full political rights, whereas candidates were required to be 25 years old (Article 52).[9]
