The family most closely associated with America's Castles are the Vanderbilts. From Newport to Asheville, their legendary mansions fill the landscape. But perhaps the greatest castle a Vanderbilt ever called home was across the Atlantic in England. Alva Vanderbilt was obsessed with the station of her family, and her every move was designed to further the status of the Vanderbilt name. This passion led Alva to force her daughter Consuelo to marry the Ninth Duke of Marlborough, thus joining the fortunes of the Vanderbilts with British Royalty.
