If that were to ever happen if might just be due to a dictator unrelated to any of the former dynasties seizing power and deciding to follow Napoléon's example.
Hadn't Monaco decided that Caroline and her children were going to inherit after Prince Albert of Monaco, if he hadn't eventually married and reproduced? Despite the rule that Monaco would revert back to France if there was no male heir?
