The House of Luxemburg (French: Maison de Luxembourg; German: Haus Luxemburg) or Luxemburg dynasty, was a German noble and royal family of the Holy Roman Empire in the late Middle Ages, originating in Lotharingia. From 1373 to 1529 they were Electors of Brandenburg and between 1308 and 1437 family members ruled as Kings of Germany and Holy Roman Emperors as well as Kings of Bohemia, Hungary and Croatia. Their rule was twice interrupted by the rival Bavarian House of Wittelsbach.
