 The Prince Pierre Foundation’s “Hors les murs” series of conferences held outside Monaco concluded in Matignon (Côtes-d’Armor) recently, with a lecture given by Thomas Fouilleron, Director of the Prince’s Palace Archives and Library, who holds a doctorate in history. The title of the conference was: Princes and Princesses of Monaco: The Advent of a Dynasty (13th–21st Century). It was largely based on the works to be presented in Beijing from 6 September as part of the exhibition organised by the Grimaldi Forum: “Princes and Princesses of Monaco. A European Dynasty”, curated by Dr Fouilleron.

The last two conferences in the series took place in Paris and Strasbourg, and covered “The Theatrical Professions” (with Éric Ruf) and “Art and Human Rights” (with Dean Spielmann and Guido Raimondi), respectively.

Monaco’s links with Matignon date back to the eighteenth century: in 1715, Louise-Hippolyte of Monaco (1697–1731), heiress to the Principality, married Jacques IV of Goyon-Matignon (1689–1751), who, according to the Grimaldis’ customs of succession, gave up his surname and coat of arms to take up those of the Grimaldis. An enlightened man with a great passion for art, Jacques became Prince of Monaco in 1731 following his wife’s death. He abdicated in favour of his son, Honoré III, in 1733, and relinquished his role as regent in 1740.
