Re: Monaco: Genealogy and Relationships with European Royals

The Grimaldis are not as closely related to the other royal houses as those houses are to one another, because they are, in truth, no more than French aristocrats who became rulers by an accident of History (the survival of Monaco as an independant state), and I say that with no disrespect. Up to the 17th century, they were serving Spain, so they tended to marry Italian and Spanich noblewomen. After they began serving France, they married French noblewomen, and it must be noted that they are French since the early 18th century, when the Goyon-Matignon and then the Polignac took over Monaco and the Grimaldi name.

You can find another link to German princely families through Antoinette de Mérode, prince Albert 1st's mother here:

Pedigree for Comtesse Antoinette de Merode

You can also note that, since the 17th century, only one Monaco princess has descendants in other royal houses (if you don't count princess Florestine and the Urach family): Teresa-Maria Grimaldi, an ancestor of the houses of Austria-Este, Bourbon-Parma, Bavaria, Luxembourg, etc...

Teresa Maria Grimaldi
According to Wikipedia, Stephanie de Beauharnais was the second cousin of Empress Josephine's two children, and Napoleon adopted Stephanie and made her a 'Princesse Française.' Her biological father was Claude de Beauharnais and his father and Eugène's father (Josephine's first husband) were first cousins. Stephanie married a Prince of Baden and their granddaughter married Monaco's Albert I. Although married briefly, they had a son, whose descendant Albert II is now The Prince of Mónaco. Albert II's younger sister Princess Stephanie is elder Stephanie's namesake.

SdB's other dayghter was Princess Josephine Friederike Luise of Baden. On 21 October 1834 at*Karlsruhe, she married*Karl Anton Joachim Zephyrinus Friedrich Meinrad, Prince of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, son of*Charles, Prince of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen*(1785–1853) and his wife*Marie Antoinette Murat*(1793–1847).

Their children were:

Leopold*(1835–1905)
Stephanie*(1837–1859), Queen consort of*Pedro V, King of*Portugal*(1839–1914),
King of*RomaniaAnton*(1841–1866), died in battle.
Friedrich*(1843–1904)
Marie*(1845–1912), married*Prince Philippe, Count of Flanders

Through her eldest son Leopold and also through her daughter Marie, she is the ancestress of the*Romanian royal family*and the*Yugoslav Royal Family. Through her daughter Marie, she is also the ancestress of the Belgian royal family and the Grand Ducal family of Luxemburg.

Not only was P Stephanie of Monaco named in honor of SdB, but so was the future Queen Stephanie of Portugal, consort of Pedro V, as was P Stephanie of Belgium, a future Archduchess of Austria.

Only using basic information you can draw the obvious conclusión that the Princely Family of Monaco are related to many other royal/grand ducal/princely houses of Europe.

As far as I know,all European reigning dynasties and former royal reigning heads of the family (including Monaco and except Montenegro) have descended from Prince Johann Georg II von Anhalt-Dessau(1627-1693).

So,they are all related in one way or another.

The most recent common ancestor of all currently reigning European dynasties is Johan Willem Friso, Prince of Orange, who was Prince Johann George II von Anhalt-Dessau's grandson (through his mother).

Most of the non-reigning one dynasties are descended from him as well; I think there's fewer than 20 pretenders in Europe that don't descend from JWF and they tend to be from small and/or obscure families - Albania, Montenegro, Nepal.

Indeed. And the most remarbable is that Johan Willem Friso of Nassau only had a small family himself with one son (Prince Willem IV) and one daughter (Princess Amalia). Via these two almost all European royal families are related...

I wonder if what the poster meant was Neapel which in many European languages is the name for Naples in Italy which up until 1861 was an independent kingdom ruled by a cadet branch of the Spanish Bourbons.
