Prince Albert II was the reigning monarch of Monaco from 1889 to 1922. Apart from being the constitutional head, he was a famous oceanographer. Rainier III, his great grandson, took up the position and served it for 56 years, thus becoming the longest ruling monarchs in European history. Though he gained fame internationally for his marriage to the American actress Grace Kelly, he was primarily responsible for revamping and expanding Monaco’s economy beyond its traditional casino gambling base. He introduced many light, non-polluting industries in Monaco.
