 As a sequel to our first episode exploring the curses affecting various dynasties that have ruled the world, this new documentary identifies and explores the most powerful families of our time, which forged their wealth from the mid-nineteenth century onwards, following the industrialisation of certain countries, especially the United States. This episode features the Gettys, the Guinness family, the Hesse-Darmstadt clan, the Rothschilds, the Ford family, the Vanderbilts, the Rockefeller family, J.P. Morgan’s family and the Carnegies. It also discusses royal families like the Hesse-Darmstadts of the House of Hohenzollern, and the Dutch Royal family. These families or dynasties are famous and wealthy, but they are also unfortunate, and have never been able to enjoy their wealth thoroughly. Indeed, it has never afforded them peace or happiness, and many of them ended up in ruin, suffered tragedies or faced disgrace.

What did these families have in common besides their vast fortunes? Why were some of them known by the term ‘robber barons’? They illegally claimed ownership of the planet’s resources, using colonialism, slavery, and servility to their advantage, as they disposed of human lives, by murdering, deceiving, and destroying others, in order to exploit and control the world’s wealth – including oil, gold and diamonds. That was not all, however. They also created an international banking system – the Federal Reserve – to deprive working class people of their savings. Despite their wealth and power, they suffered countless personal tragedies, illnesses, deaths, kidnappings, accidents, suicides and failed relationships, which suggest that these families were under some sort of curse that they passed down for generations.
