Prince Rainier Louis Henri Maxence Bertrand Grimaldi III, 14th cousin 3x removed

Prince Rainier Louis Henry Maxence Bertrand Grimaldi III is my 14th cousin 3x removed. The ancestor that we share is Sir Ralph De Neville (1364-1525), my 14th great grandfather. Prince Rainier III was born 31 May 1923 and died on 6 April 2005. He reigned over the Principality regarding Monaco for nearly 56 years, making him among the lengthiest ruling monarchs in European history. Although globally recognized as his marriage to American actress Grace Kelly, he was also accountable for reforms to Monaco’s constitution and for broadening the principality’s overall economy from its traditional casino gambling base to its present tax destination function. Gambling makes up only approximately three percent of the nation’s yearly income these days; when Rainier ascended the throne in 1949, it consisted of greater than NINETY FIVE percent.
