Abstract

Luxembourg was established as an autonomous Grand Duchy under the Dutch crown in 1815, but was administered as an integral part of the Netherlands. From 1830 to 1839 it formed part of newly independent Belgium. In 1839 the territory of the Grand Duchy was divided. Half the population remained part of Belgium. Sovereignty over the remaining territory was restored to the Netherlands, which granted the country its own indirectly elected assembly.
