In case you haven’t heard, four members of the House of Grimaldi—including two of Grace Kelly’s grandchildren—are partnering with Netflix to produce a series of historical drama films about Monaco’s royal family. And something tells us they’ll appeal to any fan who has seen The Crown.
Andrea Casiraghi, Pierre Casiraghi, Beatrice Casiraghi and Charlotte Casiraghi's husband, Dimitri Rassam, will produce the films, starting with Monaco: Part I—The Rock. And the series will reportedly chronicle the history of the reigning family, including the famous tale of how François Grimaldi captured the fortress on the Rock of Monaco and established a new dynasty.
While discussing the upcoming project, Rassam told Variety, "I thought I knew this story but it turns out I had only scratched the surface. Simply said, it is epic in every way: family, adventure, intrigue. The true story of the foundation of the Grimaldis of Monaco some seven centuries ago is one of the most captivating stories I have had the chance of discovering thanks to the initiative of Beatrice, Andrea and Pierre."
We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more details, but until then, we put together a complete rundown of Monaco’s royal family. Keep reading for details on the line of succession.
