Ghislaine Marie Françoise Dommanget (13 October 1900 – 30 April 1991) was a French comedy actress and the Princess consort of Monaco from 1946 to 1949.

Life and marriages[edit]

She was the daughter of Colonel Robert Joseph Dommanget (1867-1957) and his wife, Marie Louise Meunier (1867-1957). She married firstly Paul Diey (1863–1931) in 1923.[1]

She later married André Brulé, an actor. She subsequently divorced her second husband and married the reigning Prince of Monaco, Louis II, on 24 July 1946 — the first bride of a member of the Grimaldi family without a dowry.

Following his death on 9 May 1949, and the accession of her step-grandson Rainier III, she became Dowager Princess of Monaco, a title she held until her death.
