Monaco. According to
countryaah, the head of state, Prince Rainier III, who has
been on the throne since 1949, died in April, 81 years old.
After three months of official country grief, his son took
the title of Albert II in July. Just before that, the
47-year-old unmarried Albert had contributed to a new
scandal in the paraphrased prince Grimaldi when he
acknowledged paternity to an extra-marital son.
