    • Sigfried (or Siegfried) (c.?922 ? 28 October 998) was Count in the Ardennes, and is known in European historiography as founder and first ruler of the Castle of Luxembourg in 963 AD, and ancestor and predecessor of the future counts and dukes of Luxembourg.[1] He was also an advocate of the abbeys of St. Maximin in Trier and Saint Willibrord in Echternach.

      His male-line descendants are known as the House of Luxembourg, or House of Ardenne?Luxembourg, and his descendants would become the Counts of Luxembourg.
