The ruling family of Monaco, the house of Grimaldi, traces its ancestry to Otto Canella (c.1070–1143), who was consul of Genoa in 1133. The family name, Grimaldi, was adapted from the Christian name of Canella's youngest son, Grimaldo. The Genoese built a fort on the site of present-day Monaco in 1215, and the Grimaldi family secured control late in the 13th century. The principality was founded in 1338 by Charles I, during whose reign Menton and Roquebrune were acquired. Claudine became sovereign upon the death of her father, Catalan, in 1457. She ceded her rights to her husband and cousin, Lambert, during whose reign, in 1489, the duke of Savoy recognized the independence of Monaco. The first Monégasque coins were minted in the 16th century. Full recognition of the princely title was obtained by Honoré II in 1641.

Albert I[]

Albert I was Prince of Monaco and Duke of Valentinois from 10 September 1889 until his death. He devoted much of his life to oceanography. Alongside his expeditions, Albert I made reforms on political, economic and social levels, bestowing a constitution on the Principality in 1911.

Dawn of Man[]

"Albert I, Prince of Monaco, welcome. Monaco is the land of your forefathers - the ancient and noble House of Grimaldi. For 700 years, the Grimaldis have ruled over the lands of Monaco with a shrewd business acumen and a stalwart grip on their sovereignty. Under your reign, Monaco would be ushered into the modern age of constitutions and republics. But through your careful reforms, the powers of the great Grimaldis would not diminish but remain, and it would do so well into the 21st century.
