EU was founded in the year 1993. The organisation has been active for over 26 years now. The EU and as well as European citizenship was established just when the Maastricht Treaty had come into force, in the same year of the organisation's founding date. The organisation has its origins back to the European Coal and Steel Community as well as the European Economic Community. The European Coal and Steel Community was established with the help of the 1951 Treaty of Paris. While the European Economic Community was created with the 1957 Treaty of Rome as well. There were six countries that had come forward in order to form the six countries - Italy, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg and also West Germany.
Over time, the community have grown in size with new member countries as well. The latest amendment to the EU was the 2009 Treaty of Lisbon, which had came in force in the same year only.
