A quick history lesson about the Grimaldi family

The House of Grimaldi is the family which has ruled Monaco since 1297.

Prince Rainier III of Monaco (1923-2005), ruler of the principality of Monaco in the south of France near the Italian border, married American actress Grace Kelly (1929-1982) in 1956.

Note: Technically, the Monaco rulers are known as “Princes of Monaco” ie. a principality, not kings, which would make it a “kingdom”. Monaco is a sovereign city-state.


Grace Kelly wedding


Grace, a style icon, both then and now – see our Grace Kelly photo gallery – starred in several classic films including To Catch a Thief, High Society and Rear Window. She won an Oscar for her performance in the 1954 film, The Country Girl.

They had three children:

  • Prince Albert
  • Princess Caroline
  • Princess Stephanie


The Monaco royal family


The three children of Rainier and Grace have since produced eleven (acknowledged) grandchildren.
