Countess Alix de Lannoy (née della Faille de Leverghem; 20 September 1941 - 26 August 2012)[1] was a Belgian noblewoman and the mother of Stéphanie, Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg.


Alix was a daughter of Jhr. Harold della Faille de Leverghem, member of a family of Antwerp, ennobled in 1614,[2] and Countess Madeleine de Brouchoven de Bergeyck. Alix married Count Philippe de Lannoy in 1965 and had eight children.[3] Their youngest child, Countess Stéphanie, married Guillaume, Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg, on 20 October 2012.[3]

She was living at the Lannoys' ancestral Château de Hun in Anvaing, where she was the honorary librarian of the municipal library.

The countess died following a sudden stroke on 26 August 2012, at the age of 70.[3] The Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg released a statement, "Their Royal Highnesses Prince Guillaume, the Grand Duke, the Grand Duchess and the whole family join in the pain of the Count de Lannoy and his beloved family with our sincere and deepest regret."[3]

The funeral of Countess Alix de Lannoy was held in Frasnes-lez-Anvaing, Belgium, attended by members of the Luxembourg and Belgian royal families.[4]


Alix had eight children with her husband:
