Jonathan Warre- Honorary Consul of the Principality of Monaco
His Topic is:
The Forgotten Global Dynasty that
Spawned Modern Las Vegas
Jonathan was appointed Honorary Consul of the Principality of Monaco, the oldest consular post in Nevada, by HSH Prince Albert II in October of 2010.
Consul Warren's research into the legacy of the Consulate of Monaco in Las Vegas uncovered lost archives of an extraordinary global, dynasty, instrumental in early development of modern Las Vegas.
His five years uncovering the records the family of Consul Henry Leigh Hunt and his wife, famed French author Louise de Vilmorin, have brought about new historical narrative to the history of the Las Vegas Strip.
By request of County officials he has updated the historical record for the upcoming beautification of Maryland Parkway.
The newly uncovered history has attracted the attention of scholars from Europe, the US and South America, as well as the interest of a new market for tourism.
In 2015 Jonathan was awarded the rank of Commander in the Order of Consular Merit by the Consular Corps of Brazil, for his research.
