American Dynasties

Show Summary

They are the focus of media frenzies, the bearers of charity, and the symbols of success; families whose names have become synonymous with wealth, power and glamour. See how these American dynasties - from the Astors and Rockefellers to the Kelloggs and Hiltons - began, and how their legacies live on today, in this comprehensive collection from BIO. From the vision of Adolph Coors, a German immigrant whose work resulted in the world's largest single brewery to the Kellogg brothers' collaboration on the cornflake, from the saga of the Vanderbilts, to the philanthropy of the Rockefellers and the inheritance of the Hiltons, discover how Ameica's most prominent families made their fortunes, and how - amidst personal and professional setbacks, controversy, and tragedy - they managed to endure. Eight full-length and intimate profiles reveal the public and private lives of the Astor, Rockefeller, Hilton, Grimaldi, Coors, Kellogg, Vanderbilt, and Onassis families.
