Last Friday, to mark the centenary of the Battle of Verdun, HSH Prince Albert II visited the First World War memorials.
The Prince made a point to go to the site of one of the most violent confrontations of the First World War in memory of Monegasque volunteer fighters (chief among them his great-grandfather, Prince Louis II) and residents of the Principality mobilised during the conflict.
Hosted at the World Peace Centre, the Sovereign also visited the new memorial and Fort Douaumont. Accompanied by the Bishop of Verdun, he spent a moment at the ossuary, which has a carving of the Principality’s coat of arms.
The martyred city of Verdun was decorated by Prince Louis II, in 1929, with the Order of St. Charles.
