Constitution of Luxembourg

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]
