Daughter of Antonio I of Monaco and Marie of Lorraine. Though her parents had six kids, they were all girls. She was the 2nd born but her older sister didnt survive childhood. It was agreed with the French king that her husband would take her last name and rule jointly with her.

Her husband Jacques I was Jacques Goyon, Count of Matignon.

While she was welcomed by the Monaco people, her husband was not. When she died of smallpox he was so neglectful of Monaco, preferring to stay in Paris even when she was alive with his mistresses, that he was forced to abdicate. She died in 1731 and he abdicated in favor of their son Honore in 1732.

They had 9 children. Honore (Honore III) was their third child and 2nd son.

November 12, 1929 birth of Grace Patricia Kelly aka Princess Grace of Monaco.

Grace was born in Philadelphia to a prominent family. Her father John Kelly won three olympic gold medals in sculling and owned a brickwork company. Her mother Margaret Majer Kelly was the first coach for female athletic teams at University of Pennsylvania college for women before she married and had kids. Grace was the third of four children, with two sisters Peggy and Elizabeth and one brother John. Like their father, John Jr was an Olympian sculler, competing in four olympics and winning bronze in one.

Grace's father was one of ten children. His brother Walter was a Vaudeville actor and his brother George was a Pulitzer prize winner for drama.

Grace made her acting debut in television in 1948. Grace would appear in 11 movies before she left Hollywood. Her last was High Society.



She had an earlier brush as a 'princess' in the movie 'The Swan'




Having met Prince Rainier III of Monaco at Cannes in 1955 the couple were married in 1956. The couple had three children, Caroline, Albert and Stephanie. Unfortunately Grace was in a car accident September 13, 1982. She was driving back from Roc Agel with her daughter Stephanie when she suffered a stroke. She died the following day. Due to injuries Stephanie was unable to attend the funeral of her mother.

Her funeral September 18 had 400 mourners including Princess Diana and Empress Farrah of Iran, and a number of Hollywood friends like Cary Grant.



Rainier died in 2005.

She is now the grandmother of 11 (4 from Albert, 4 from Caroline and 3 from Stephanie) and 7 great-grandchildren all from Caroline.

Commonly referred to by the Italian form instead, Ercole.

Like his grandfather Lucien, he was murdered. He was stabbed to death in a back alley way on his way home from the governor's house. There is some doubt about the reason for his murder.

Mad for Monaco: Lord Hercules I of Monaco

His son Honoree became Prince of Monaco, it raised to a principality that year. Honoree was under the guardianship of his Uncle Frederico Landi who allowed Monaco to be occupied by the Spanish and sent Honoree and his sisters to Milan. It was his alliance with Louis XIII to end Spanish occupation which led to Monaco falling under the French protection. The titles Duke of Valentinois and Marquis of Baux were given bu Louis at this time as Honoree lost his Italian lands when he allied with the French.

Her second marriage was to Dr. Jean-Charles Rey in 1961. He was president of the National council of the Parliament of Monaco. They were married until 1974 when they were divorced.

Her third marriage was to dancer and choreographer John Gilpin. They married July 1983 but he died six weeks after they were married.He died suddenly from a heart attack.
