In 2002, to  ensure the succession to the throne and to guarantee the preservation of  the 700-year-old Grimaldi dynasty, some changes were made in the Monaco  constitution. The amendments state that siblings, nephews and nieces of  a ruler have the right to inherit the throne. After Albert, the throne  could therefore be passed on to his sisters - Stephanie and Carolina -  or any of their seven children.
