This is also Princess Grimaldi

& a next generation Prince

Chic Silber said...

Grimaldi is the ruling

family name for centuries

Originally a pirate clan

that confiscated this

Eastrn cove on the Cote

D'Azure to become their

"Principality" as some

comprimise with France

A colony of GREAT wealth

Chic Silber said...

That "comprimise" with France was

The Franco Monégasque Treaty of 1861

which has some stipulations where

France could resume sovereignty

a very strange arrangement indeed

Monaco is surrounded on all land

borders by France and on the South

by the Mediterranean

Albert wearing the bowtie

is the current reigning

Prince of Monaco and his

only legitimate male child

Jacques is the heir apparent
