In 1863 the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg was united in personal union with the kingdom of the Netherlands (1838–90) and also formed part of the German Confederation (1842–66) and of the German Zollverein (1842–1919). The executive was vested in a governor-general, legislative power was exercised by a chamber of deputies under the constitution of 9 July 1848. Until Luxembourg became neutralized (1867), it maintained an army of 2,700 men. The population (census 1860) was 197,281.
