About Liege

Liège is a member of the agglomeration community "Communauté urbaine Liège-Luxembourg", which has more than 500,000 inhabitants. The name "Liège" comes from the Germanic word for 'ford' (modern Dutch: , modern German: ). An old legend claims that Julius Caesar once took a detour through Liège. The Roman emperor Julian was said to have built an imperial palace nearby in order to worship Augustus, but this story may be false and it might refer to another structure or collection of buildings in another city (possibly Tongeren). The first mention of Lieja dates from 983 when Otto II, Holy Roman Emperor mentioned it as part of Lutician federation during a campaign against rebellious Saxons.
