Oldenburg did not become a grand duchy until 1829.
No, Oldenburg was along others raised to a Grand Duchy by the Congress of Vienna. However, the first Grand Duke rejected the new title and continued to call himself Duke. But when his son succeeded him in 1829, within a week the new sovereign was proclaimed Grand Duke.
Thank you. I knew that there was not a grand duke of Oldenburg before 1829.
