In 1454 the Grimaldi family acquired Monaco, gaining independence in 1489. It has remained a Dukedom ever since. A treaty drawn in 1918 grants the tiny State to the Grimaldi Family until there are no more heirs. The Grimaldi family Coat of Arms is topped by an eight Arched Duchal Crown which became Monaco's symbol of Sovereignty.
Monaco has a colourful and fascinating history filled with barbarians, kings and even a movie star. It is a story of castles, epic battles and untold riches.  The Grimaldi ascent began one night in 1297, when Francois Grimaldi seized the fortress of Monaco form a rival Italian faction. Disguised as a monk, he successfully led a small army into the fortress reclaiming it in the name of the Pope. The legacy of his daring victory is recorded on Monaco's coat of arms, which bears two monks brandishing swords.
 Over the next few centuries, Monaco prospered as an important port in major maritime trading routes and as a strategic naval base for European military powers that were constantly vying for control of The Rock. In 1604, Lord Honore II came to the throne and launched Monaco into its "Great Century". Reflecting upon his accomplishments, he deigned himself worthy of a new title, Prince Honore II. Grimaldi rules have proudly held the title of Prince ever since.
