In 1660 Prince Louis of Monaco was the heir apparent of Prince Honore II, his paternal grandfather. In 1660 King Louis XIII of France's wedding gift to Prince Louis was the Duchy of Valentinois, the Duchy of Carladez, the Marquisate of Baux and the Lordship of Buis.

Federico Landi, Prince de Valdetare was the Regent for his nephew, Honore II.
The Prince de Valdetare was determined to have his nephew assume the title of Prince de Monaco.
In 1612, in a document requiring Honore's signature, the Prince de Valdetare inserted the words:

"Honore II, regnant, prince and seigneur by the grace of God of Monaco, Mentone, and Roquelrune."

The Spanish government let this statement stay in the document.

The title 'principe' was already in any case used in relation to an Italian title for the Grimaldis since the Middle Ages.

After the demise of her father Antoine I, Louise-Hippolyte returned to Monaco alone.
She took the oath of loyalty and was immediately made Princesse de Monaco without any mention of her husband Jacques.
Louise-Hippolyte decreed that she would reign alone.
All documents were to be in her name only.
In The Grimaldis of Monaco, Anne Edwards wrote:

Honore V's initial edict on March 12, 1815 (after decreeing that the official language would return to French, for he spoke very little Italian) was to have all property that had been confiscated by the revolutionary forces, which was now distributed among the former communes, hospitals and churches, made over to him, as well as revenues from all taxes.
Albert I was at sea when he was informed of his father Charles III's demise and altered his course back to Monaco.
On October 23, 1889 he accepted the oath of loyalty in the courtyard of the Palace.
The ceremony had not been performed there since 1731, when Honore III had returned to succeed his mother, Louise-Hippolyte.
In The Grimaldis of Monaco, Anne Edwards wrote:

When Queen Victoria and Prince Albert paid a return visit to France in September 1855, Charles and Antoinette (of Monaco) attended the great ball in their honor at Versailles. For Antoinette this was the greatest moment of her life, the imperial grandeur of it was to affect her for the rest of her life. From this time she conjured up the dream that her son, Albert, then only a small child, would marry into the British royal family.

Louise Hippolyte, Princess of Monaco is so far the only Sovereign Princess of Monaco but sadly her reign was brief : 20th of February 1731 29th of December 1731.
