About Bicentenary of the Birth of Prince Charles III

Charles III, born in 1818, succeeded his father Prince Florestan Ierin 1856. He reigned until his death in 1889. By founding Monte-Carlo, a new district in Monaco built around the Casino, Charles III launched Monaco’s economic growth and its reputation as an intellectual and fashionable centre. Charles III played a major role in affirming Monaco’s sovereignty by establishing diplomatic and consular relations, by giving the Principality a national flag, a decoration, the Order of St Charles, and an independent diocese, by once again minting coins, and by issuing the first postal stamp in the Principality’s history in 1885.
