Religions in Monaco: What Millionaires Believe In

Déo Juvante, which means ‘With God’s help’ in Latin, are not just words in Monaco, but the national motto of the Principality and the Princely Family. It dates back to the 13th century when the territory of the present-day Monaco was conquered by François Grimaldi, the founder of the ruling dynasty.
