New stamp series of Monaco

This block is the latest in the series that began in 2010 devoted to the fiefs of the Grimaldi\"\" family in the Kingdom of France.

The signing of the treaty of Péronne in 1641 by King Louis XIII and Prince Honoré II ended Spanish protectorate in exchange for Monaco.

In return, as compensation for the loss of his Spanish territories, Louis XIII granted four fiefs to Honoré II that included Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and Les Baux, made into a French marquisate and offered to Hercule, son of Honoré II.
