I did not see a thread for her so I thought it would be fun to introduce one. This is a fascinating woman, guys.
I wrote this obituary for her shortly after her death: http://geekyroyalresearch...plores-extraordinary.html

She was sister of Prince Rainier III.

Princess Antoinette had an English nanny. The English lady's name was Kathleen Wanstall. Nanny Wanstall was a cousin of Winston Churchill.

Princess Antoinette said, "Every day spent with my animals gives me great happiness. They all give me unbelievable joy."

Did Louis II marry his daughter's mother? I didn't think a child could be legitimised for the throne unless the parents married in a catholic ceremony.

It has been asserted that Louis II married Charlotte's mother in 1897. There is, however, no evidence for this allegation.

Louis II never married to Marie Juliette, Charlotte became heiress of the Monegasque throne because, as I read, there wasn't any other person to govern the country after Louis' death. On 1911 a law recognized Charlotte as heiress of the throne, but this act was invalidated by the statutes of 1882, so they made another law in 1918 saying that adoptions were permitted, so Louis adopted Charlotte in 1919 in Paris. After the adoption, she became a Grimaldi, heiress of the throne and her grandfather, Albert I, gave her the title of Duchess of Valentinois.

Yes and France allowed it because the next in line after Louis II was his cousin the Duke of Urach who was the son of Princess Florestine of Monaco. No one wanted a German prince on the Monegasque throne.

Did Princess Antoinette try to have her first husband, Alexandre Noghes created a Prince?
She wanted to have herself installed as regent and over throw her brother.

‘In about 1950 Antoinette, as the elder child, began to investigate the possibility of her replacing Prince Rainier on the throne of Monaco, with a view to her son eventually succeeding. She was supported in this endeavour by Jean-Charles Rey, president of the Conseil Nationale of Monaco, whom she had taken as a lover.
At this time Rainier was enjoying a 10-year affair with the beautiful French actress Gisèle Pascal, whom he had met when studying at Montpelier University. They were living together in a villa at St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Antoinette, who was of a meddlesome disposition, circulated the rumour that Gisèle was infertile, hoping to secure the succession for her own son.
It began to be said that a doctor had examined the actress and confirmed the rumour — which was later dispelled when she had a child in her marriage to the actor Raymond Pellegrin. At any event, Gisèle and Rainier split up in 1953, and the succession was finally assured in 1956 when he married Grace Kelly and went on to have three children of his own.’

It is nice that Princess Antoinette grew closer to her brother after Princess Grace's demise in a car crash in 1982.  Hug

They never lost touch and she was frequently pictured with both Prince Rainier and Princess Grace over the years. She also remained close to her nieces and nephew.

 The talk of plots and feuds is much exaggerated IMO, in the same way as  the tales of Caro plotting a takeover by Andrea.

I have often thought it was the man she was married to who was the true plotter, who wanted the throne more than she did. And then it was her son, not her, who went wild and wrote a tell-all book..... Antoinette herself seemed fairly content at the end of it all, living with her dogs at the villa in Eze: carrying out a reasonable number of representational duties and watching tennis. Smiley
