Historical background


MONACO - PRINCIPALITY OF MONACO - CHARLES III

(20/06/1856-10/09/1889)

Charles III (8/12/1818-10/09/1889) is the son of Florestan I. He succeeded his father in 1856 and created the Order of Charles III in 1858. After the Franco-Sardinian victory of 1859 and the sale of the County of Nice in 1860, he finds himself caught between France and Italy. February 2, 1861, by an agreement with France, Menton and Roquebrune sells for 400 million francs and sign a customs agreement with France. The construction of the Casino in 1863, the arrival of the railway and the construction of Monte Carlo in 1866 will help save and Monaco into a modern principality. The Opera Garnier work such as Paris, was inaugurated in 1879. Charles III died in 1889 and his son Albert I succeeded him.
