Businessman, sportsman. A native of Milan, Italy, he was the son of Fernanda and Giancarlo Casiraghi, and the husband of Princess Caroline of Monaco. Known as an avid sportsman, Casiraghi considered himself a born businessman. The young Casiraghi had business interests in Milan, New York, Paris, North Africa, and in the Middle East. These included restaurants, garages, used car lots, boutiques, heliports, apartment houses, and souvenir shops. On December 29, 1983, Casiraghi married Princess Caroline, and together they would have three children: Andrea (born on June 8, 1984), Charlotte (born on August 3, 1985), and Pierre (born on September 5, 1987). Following the marriage, many people, including Prince Rainier, were suspicious of his motives in merrying Princess Caroline. The Italian newspapers gave Casiraghi the nickname 'Carolino' and thought he was nothing more than a boytoy for his new wife. By 1990, Casiraghi had surprised most people by becoming a powerful man in Monaco. This new respect Casiraghi had received was shortlived. In 1990, Casiraghi was nearly killed when his boat exploded off the coast of Guernsey. On October 3, 1990, Casiraghi was competing in an offshore powerboat race in which he was defending his World Off-shore title. His boat, named the "Pinot di Pinot", suddenly toppled over and Casiraghi was killed. Some believe that he would have survived the accident if his boat had only been equipped with a canopy. Following his untimely death, other safety laws were also brought into an effect. Many people believed that the Mafia had a role in his death, or that he had been drinking prior to the accident. His funeral was held a few days later and he was buried in Monaco near Caroline's paternal grandfather in the Chapelle de la Paix.
