Grace Patricia Kelly (November 12, 1929 — September 14, 1982) was an Oscar-winning American film actress who, as a result of marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco, became Her Serene Highness, Princess Grace of Monaco.

Elvis Presley biography, She was the mother of the principality's current reigning Sovereign Prince, Albert II of Monaco. Grace Kelly was required to renounce her American citizenship upon her marriage.

She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to John Brendan Kelly Sr. (October 4, 1889 — June 20, 1960) and Margaret Majer, a Catholic convert from Lutheranism; her Irish Catholic family (originally from Kidney Lake, Co. Mayo, Ireland) were new but prominent figures in Philadelphia society.

Her father was a self-made millionaire and a gold-medal-winning Olympic sculler, and her brother "Jack" followed in that tradition. Kelly Drive in Philadelphia is named for John, Jr., who was a city councilman there. Her father's family was large and she had two prominent uncles in the arts; one, Walter Kelly, was a vaudevillian, and the other was the acclaimed playwright, George Kelly.

Though her family had opposed her becoming an actress, Kelly became a fashion model and appeared in her first film, Fourteen Hours (1951), when she was 22. The following year she "starred" with a minor role in High Noon (1952), a generally praised but somewhat controversial western starring Gary Cooper.

Her next film, Mogambo (1953), was a drama set in the Kenyan jungle which centers on the love triangle portrayed by Kelly, Clark Gable, and Ava Gardner. It earned Kelly an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress, but the award went to Donna Reed for her role in From Here to Eternity. Kelly made three films with Alfred Hitchcock: Dial M for Murder, Rear Window, and To Catch a Thief.

In 1955, she was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actress for The Country Girl. While it was being filmed, she engaged in a brief affair (one of many in Hollywood) with co-star Bing Crosby, a fellow Irish Catholic, which was kept quiet to protect both their reputations.

The musical comedy High Society (1956) was her last film, as her marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco marked her retirement from acting. Before her marriage, she was previously allegedly involved with Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, Ray Milland, William Holden, Oleg Cassini,and Jean-Pierre Aumont. She reportedly was surprised to learn from Rainier that she was expected to give up her film career entirely, but followed his wishes grudgingly.

Her Catholicism and ability to bear children were key factors in her being chosen to marry Prince Rainier. Tales were circulated that Monaco would revert to France in the absence of an heir; and though there is no requirement for a Catholic marriage, it was thought unlikely that a Catholic prince would divorce and remarry if his chosen wife were barren.

In fact, there was really little actual danger that Monaco would revert to France since, in 1882, a childless prince of Monaco adopted an unrelated heir, thereby ensuring Monaco's survival as a principality. Prince Rainier's maternal grandfather, Prince Louis II of Monaco also legitimized his illegitimate daughter Charlotte Louvet, who would become Rainier's mother and made her his heir Princess Charlotte of Monaco.

Before Grace Kelly drew Rainier's attention, French film star Gisиle Pascal (neй Giselle Marie Madeleine Tallone) had been his love interest for six years. Gisиle and Rainier supposedly parted when a physical examination reportedly found her to be infertile, but Gisйle later married Raymond Pellegrin on October 8, 1955, and bore at least one child.

Prince Rainier and Princess Grace had three children:

1. Princess Caroline Louise Marguerite, born January 23, 1957, and now heiress presumptive to the throne of Monaco

2. Albert II of Monaco, born March 14, 1958

3. Princess Stйphanie Marie Elisabeth, born February 1, 1965

In 2002, a new treaty between France and Monaco clarified that even if there are no direct heirs of the reigning prince, the principality will remain an independent nation, rather than reverting to France. Due to Prince Albert's enduring bachelorhood, Monegasque law now states that in the event of a reigning prince's lack of descendants, his siblings and their children will inherit the throne.

The line of succession is now Princess Caroline, then her children by her late second husband Stefano Casiraghi, who died in 1990, and her third husband, HRH Prince Ernst August of Hanover.

At the age of 52, in September 1982, Princess Grace suffered a stroke while driving. It had been rumored that she was driving on the same stretch of highway in Monaco that had been featured in To Catch a Thief, although her son claims that it was not. It resulted in an accident, and she died the next day without regaining consciousness. Princess Stйphanie, who was alleged by some sources to have been the actual driver of the car, suffered only minor injuries.

Princess Grace is interred in St. Nicholas Cathedral, Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Second Grace Kelly Autobiography article:

Grace Patricia Kelly Grimaldi (November 12, 1929 — September 14, 1982) was an American actress and later became Princess Grace of Monaco. She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and died after an automobile accident in Monaco.

Her Irish Catholic family were new but prominent figures in Philadelphia society -- her father John B. Kelly Sr., was a self-made millionaire and a gold-medal-winning Olympic sculler, and her brother "Jack" followed in that tradition, and Kelly Drive in Philadelphia is named for John Jr., who was a city councilman there -- and they had opposed her becoming an actress Kelly appeared in her first film, Fourteen Hours (1951), when she was 22. The following year she starred in High Noon (1952), a generally praised but somewhat controversial western starring Gary Cooper.

The film Mogambo, a drama set in the Kenyan jungle (1953), centers on the love triangle portrayed by Kelly, Clark Gable, and Ava Gardner and won Kelly an Oscar for best supporting actress. Kelly made three films with Alfred Hitchcock: Dial M for Murder, Rear Window, and To Catch a Thief.

In 1955 she was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actress for The Country Girl (1954). While it was being filmed she had engaged in a brief affair with its star Bing Crosby that was kept quiet to protect both their reputations.

The musical comedy High Society (1956) was her last film, as her marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco marked her retirement from acting. Her being Catholic and able to bear children were key factors in her being chosen to marry Prince Rainier, as dynasties always make great import of their survival.

Tales were circulated that because Monaco was established as a principality under the Salic Law it would revert to France if ever there was no male heir... and, though there is no requirement for a Catholic marriage, it was thought unlikely that a Catholic prince would divorce and remarry if his chosen wife was barren. In fact, there was really little actual danger that Monaco would revert to France, as, since 1882, a childless prince of Monaco has been able to adopt an unrelated heir, thereby ensuring Monaco's survival as a principality. Nonetheless, survival of the nation was a different matter than the survival of the dynasty, and here there was a history of concern about fertility.

Before Grace Kelly came on the scene, there was French film star Gisele Pascal, who was Rainier's mistress for six years. (She was born Gisиle Tallone in Cannes.) Gisele and Rainier supposedly parted when a physical examination “found” her infertile. (She later married and had children.)

Prince Rainier and Princess Grace had three children: Princess, Caroline Louise Marguerite, born January 23, 1957, Prince, Albert Alexandre Louis Pierre, heir to the throne, and Marquis of Baux, born March 14, 1958 and Princess, Stephanie Marie Elisabeth, born February 1, 1965.

In 2002, a new treaty between France and Monaco clarifies that if there are no heirs to carry on the dynasty, the Principality will remain an indepedent nation rather than revert to France.

At the age of 52, Princess Grace suffered a stroke while driving on the same stretch of highway in Monaco that had figured in To Catch a Thief, which caused an accident, and she died the next day without regaining consciousness. Princess Stephanie, who was a passenger in the car, suffered only minor injuries.

Princess Grace is interred in the St. Nicholas Cathedral, (Monaco Cathedral) Monte Carlo, Monaco.
