  • Notes 
    • Signore di Cagnes, Admiral of France

      became Admiral of France in 1304
      Upon the death of Lanfranco the Malicious in 1309 he followed him as Lord of Monaco
      Like his eccentric cousin, Ranier also sought his adventures at sea. Unlike him, he did so legitimately, earning the respect of the King of Naples, Charles of Anjou, as well as that of the King of France, Philip IV "the Fair." Ranier became Grand Admiral of France in 1304, and King Robert of Naples, Charles' son, ceded to him the signories of Cagnes and Antibes on the French Coast, and the barony of San Demetrio in the rugged mountains of Calabria. Following the death of his first wife, Selvaggia, Ranier wed Andriola Grillo, fathering several children before his death in 1314. It is from this diplomatic confidant of kings that the present Prince of Monaco descends directly, though not, in the case of every generation, in the male line.
