In the 13th century, the House of the Counts of Luxembourg experiences an impressive rise. In 1346, Charles IV, son of John of Luxembourg, cumulates the dignities of his predecessors: count of Luxembourg, king of Bohemia, king of the Romans and emperor. The army is a major support in this evolution. The study of the armies, the wars, the warfare, but also of the diplomatic relations of the counts of Luxembourg, we seek in this study to highlight the armies as a dynamic phenomenon which is indicative of the transformations affecting the politics of the House of Luxembourg. We must be aware that the house of Luxembourg is not just house of counts. The Luxembourg are sometimes king or emperor. Because of the accumulation of various dignities, several geographical areas must be considered: the county of Luxembourg, northern Italy, the kingdom of Bohemia, Silesia, Tyrol, Brandenburg, the kingdom of France and even Lithuania. The social and political rise of Luxembourg makes it possible to highlight the plurality or diversity as well in the wars as in the armies. Armies and wars are both the product of the transformations and mutations imposed on Luxembourg but also the cause and accelerator of the observed evolution. By providing not only real and material support, but also immaterial support like glory and fame, the armies allow the count house to be eligible for imperial dignity and thus contribute to the journey from the count house to the royal and imperial house. Through their interdependence with society, armies influence the latter. War and society, linked by the tight bond of the economy, shape each other, giving rise to the embryo of a modern state.
