Episode 15 - When Luxembourg ruled Europe
Anyone else like the sound of Luxembourg ruling Europe? At the LHP, we certainly do.
That's right - today, we’re looking at the dramatic rise and fall of the House of Luxembourg.
We’ll examine how the orphaned Henry VII ended up becoming Holy Roman Emperor, how the House reached its apogee of power under Charles IV, and how it all fell apart during the reign of the mighty Sigismund, leading to Luxembourg’s take-over by the great dynasties of Europe.
