Peter von Aspelt is an integral part of the cultural heritage of Luxembourg, and his 700th anniversary is marked with a special 80c stamp.
When Pierre d'Aspelt died on June 5, 1320, he was one of the most powerful voters of his time. With great political ambition and great skill, the son of a simple and non-noble family became a kingmaker and a high-ranking diplomat at European level.
He is of course very present in the Luxembourg municipality of Aspelt, Peter von Aspelt is an integral part of the cultural heritage of the locality. It is thanks to his action that the name of Aspelt is known far beyond the borders. However, on the occasion of his 700th death anniversary in 2020, a new statue in his homage will not be solemnly inaugurated until 2021.
