HISTORY

Dominion of Genoa since the 12th century, in 1297 Monaco became the possession of Franceschino Grimaldi, exponent of a powerful Genoese family. After a period of ups and downs in the 14th century, for which it was now subjected now directly to Genoa now to the Grimaldis, in 1419 it passed definitively to the latter, who had to defend their possession both from the aims of Genoa and from those of France, and from those of the Savoy, owners of nearby Nice and eager to acquire the possession of Menton and Roccabruna, then included in the territory of Monaco. With a treaty of 1509 the Grimaldis submitted to French protection, but three years later they obtained from Louis XII the recognition of the independence of the city. In 1524, the Treaty of Burgos made Monaco enter the orbit of Spain for over a century, albeit with formal autonomy. In 1641 Onorato II, who in 1612 had assumed the title of prince, returned the principality to the French protectorate and from that moment the Grimaldis gravitated around the French court. On January 3, 1793, during the French Revolution, an improvised national assembly declared the principality lapsed and invoked the annexation to France, a status that lasted throughout the Napoleonic period until in 1815 the congress of Vienna returned Monaco to the Grimaldis, entrusting him the protectorate of the kingdom of Sardinia. In 1860, with the cession of Nice to France, the Piedmontese also withdrew from Monaco while Prince Charles III ceded Menton and Roccabruna to France.

Since then, entirely included within the French territory and linked to France by the unification of customs, postal and telegraphic services, the principality ceased all political action, changed its appearance and function and became one of the major tourist and social centers of the Riviera. Charles III (who died in 1889) and his son Alberto (who died in 1922), a distinguished oceanographer, carried out a radical work of internal reorganization by renewing the codes and the administration. In 1911, with the promulgation of the Constitution, the principality became a constitutional monarchy. During the reign of Rainier III, who became the 31st ruler of Monaco in 1949, succeeding his grandfather Louis II, Monaco had a new Constitution (1962) and became a member of the United Nations and the Council of Europe. In 2005, on the death of Prince Rainier, his son Alberto took the throne.
