Ahead of his 97th birthday tomorrow, the cour grand-ducale has released a new picture of Grand Duke Jean together with his oldest son Grand Duke Henri. Grand Duke Jean was born on January 5, 1921, at Château de Berg as the first child of Grand Duchess Charlotte and Prince Felix. He ascended to the Luxembourgish throne in 1964 and abdicated in favour of the current Grand Duke in the year 2000. For more on his eventful life, have a look at our Luxarazzi 101 about him. There is an additional one focusing on his life in World War II.
