Monte Carlo Motor Yacht Charters

Monte Carlo Yacht Charters

When Monte Carlo came into being it was almost called Charlesville or Albertville after the heir of Prince Charles III. The fact that neither of these names stuck in the end may have been due to Prince Charles not believing this new venture would last into his son's reign. On the other hand, he may have liked the sound of Monte Carlo (Mount Charles) as it rolls off the tongue better. Whatever the reason it was most assuredly an improvement on its old name, Splugues.

The Prince need not have worried because within three years of setting it up, the casino had earned enough money to ensure it's peoples' loyalty by abolishing direct taxation and military service! It is difficult to envision that in the middle of the nineteenth century Monaco was the poorest state in Europe. Nothing useful could grown on its rocky soil and it barely subsisted on selling salt and custom rights to France. Visit Monaco while on your power yacht vacation!
