Weather in Europe:
Local weather forecasts for destinations around Europe.

The house of Grimaldi, originally from Genoa, have been the hereditary rulers since 1297; although they were dispossessed during the French Revolution.

In 1861 Monaco was restored as an independent principality, under the protectorate of France.

Under a 1918 treaty, Monaco was to lose its sovereignty and be incorporated into France if the reigning Grimaldi prince died without leaving a male heir.

In changes made to the constitution in 2002, if Prince Albert II (who succeeded Prince Rainier III after his death, in April 2005) does not have children, the throne will pass to his sister Princess Caroline.

The Language of Monaco

The official language of Monaco is money - sorry, French.
