More information about Final Jeopardy:
In the 13th century, in amongst the battles of the Guelphs and the Ghibellines in Italy, Francesco Grimaldi (a Guelph), captured the Rock of Monaco (an important Mediterranean defense post); the Grimaldi house has ruled Monaco since. In the early 17th century, its then-leader, Lord Honore II decided himself worthy of a new title, Prince (explaining why Monaco is a principality). With most of the principality’s natural resources ceded to France in the 1860s, Prince Charles III determined that tourism and gambling were the best ways of revitalizing the Monegasque economy. It worked and is a world-renowned tourist destination. Today, Prince Albert II rules over the principality; his mother was famous movie star Grace Kelly, who married Prince Rainier III in 1956. The principality is also well-known for hosting the crown jewel in the Formula One auto racing schedule, the Monaco Grand Prix, each May.
