Monaco is a minuscule nation that exists nuzzled into the southern coast of France. It has been around since the thirteenth century and spent that time as either a Genoese, French, Spanish or Sardinian puppet. Despite this, it managed to survive to this day. To find out why Monaco doesn’t unexist watch this short and simple animated history documentary.

Usually the answers for "Why small countries continue stay independent" are similar. So I am thinking in another question: "What small countries that existed before and were annexed? And why they were annexed and the other weren't?"
For formula 1 obviously
It exist for F1 races
Charles De Gaulle is one of the most useless human beings of his time! Horrible warrior, statesmen, etc!
it's a bank not a country
''Why Norway is not in the EU'' video suggestion
Thank you for making this!!! Andorra, Lichtenstein or San Martín next?
Third on the todo list should've been… have a child named Louis
The real reason Monaco is still free…because of our lord and savior James Bizzinet.
Do one on why the Western Australian border was set where it is in 1493, by the Treaty of Torsedillas
jumpscare at 1:12
I'd love to see a video on just how in the hell Somalia would have been able to get any kind of imports during its anarchy period.
I’ve been stuck in bed because of a concussion, I live for your videos
partial Independence is not freedom
I think ( how did The united states react to the USSR's Collapse ) would be an interesting idea for a video.
PS : if you hadn't done that already in a deleted video or something like that since i cant find it.
Small country: exists
History Matters: but why?
guys i figured out the james bissonette mystery

never underestimate chefs
@History Matters could you please make a video about Why does San Marino Exist?
@History Matters could you please make a video about Why does Vatican City Exist?
Monaco = France
Andorra = Catalonia, Spain
San Marino & The Vatican City = Italy
Lichtenstein = Austria
Luxembourg = Sweden… the Swedes need Luxembourg to store their pickled herrings.
Unsure if he's meant to be a prince of Monaco or Neil deGrasse Tyson.
I love Monaco. They gave us Monte Carlo, AS Monaco, Monaco Grand Prix and Lili Rochefort.
Overcrowded tax haven
Where did the word Marty originate from?
Finally learning about the place that Kelly Moneymaker calls home…
Oh so Monaco can't allow French citizens to use it as a tax haven but it's cool for the rest of the world? Maybe the US should try offering its' ah… protection?
so, as always, it was Napoleon
Is it true that there is an agreement by which if Grimaldi's are left without male heir, Monaco will be annexed by France?
Because Kimi needs somewhere to park his yacht and watch the F1..
Man, countries can be so… random.
I live in France and we mostly have to endure endless TV documentaries on the Prince's family. Like why Charlene moved to South Africa and the private lives of the princesses of Monaco
One of them is quite famous here because she married her bodyguard and sang a song called "Comme un Ouragan" that has been used in some comedy skits
I swr i mostly expect to hear Napoleon's name in almost all things to do wit European universal problems 😅😅🤦♀️so Monaco owe it life to french it still surprised me that every Nation just want a piece of land small or big they just want it especially Europeans 😅🤦♀️💔
As a Monacan, I think this everyday.
Why at 2:36 there is a picture of the carrier Bearn? Was it so important?
