  Pont GD Charlotte
by Dabs

I figured if she had a bridge named after her, even if it's a big red hulking bridge that's not very attractive and totally out of character with the architecture of the city, that she must be important so I looked her up to see just who she was.

She reigned as duchess from 1919 when her older sister was forced to abdicate until 1964 when she abdicated in favor of her son. It was under her reign that the powers of the monarchy in Luxembourg became severly restricted.
