Historical background



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 transfer of the county of Nice in 1860, he found himself stuck between France and Italy. On February 2, 1861, by an agreement with France, he sold Menton and Roquebrune for 400 million francs and signed 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 save Monaco and make it a modern principality. The opera, a work of Garnier like that of Paris, was inaugurated in 1879. Charles III died in 1889 and his son Albert I succeeded him.
