The latest issue of Monegasque Annals, the Monaco History Review, an annual publication of the Palace Archives, has just been published.

Among the nine themes in this issue is the centenary of the First World War Battle of the Chemin des Dames, during which the future Prince Louis II distinguished himself in 1917.

Also featured is a commentary on the unpublished autobiography of the nineteenth-century Monegasque inventor Hercule Florence, to which the New National Museum of Monaco devoted an exhibition in 2017.

A superb illuminated document of the sixteenth century, the doctoral degree in law of Hercule Grimaldi, father of Prince Honore II, is also included as is a scholarly study on the place of Rubens’ paintings in the ancient collections of Princely art.

Edition No. 41 is available for €30 in bookstores and newsstands in Monaco, but is also sold  for €10 online.
