There is also a study of the lifestyle of soldiers in the Spanish garrison in Monaco. An unpublished testimony recounts their expulsion from the Principality on November 17, 1641.

The magazine also reviews the portrait of Jeanne Grimaldi Trivulce, sister to Honoré II, the two medals struck at the Prince’s Palace at the end of the reign of Prince Honoré V and the library in Lichtenstein castle, part of Princess Florestine of Monaco’s estate.
