Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg Dies at 98

BRUSSELS – Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg has passed away at the age of 98, the Duke’s son Henri announced on Tuesday.

“It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death of my well-loved father, His Royal Highness Grand Duke Jean, who died peacefully, surrounded by his family,” Grand Duke Henri said in a statement.

Luxembourg’s former head of state was hospitalized on April 13 due to a lung infection and his health deteriorated on Saturday, the L’Essentiel daily reported.

Grand Duke Jean, who was part of the Nassau dynasty, occupied the throne for 36 years, between 1964-2000, when he abdicated to his eldest son, Grand Duke Henri.

The late grand duke was born on Jan. 21, 1921 at Berg Castle to Grand Duchess Charlotte and of Prince Felix of Bourbon-Parma.

On April 9, 1953, he married Princess Josephine-Charlotte of Belgium, who was the eldest sister of King Baudouin and King Albert II. She passed away in 2005.

Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte had five children together: Archduchess Marie Astrid of Austria, the current Grand Duke of Luxembourg, Henri; Prince Jean; Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein and Prince Guillaume.
