2016 is characterised by the commemoration of the 700th anniversary of the birth of Charles IV, King of Bohemia and Holy Roman Emperor. Born to the illustrious House of Luxembourg, Charles IV is considered one of the great dynastic figures of the Middle Ages. The City of Prague owes its university to him as well as numerous other edifices, including the famous Charles Bridge. The people of Luxembourg, for their part, vividly associate this eminent character with the man who elevated the county of Luxembourg to the rank of grand duchy in 1354.
