Famiglia Rockefeller

Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera.

La famiglia Rockefeller è una famiglia industriale, politica e di banchieri che hanno creato una delle più grandi fortune nella storia mondiale degli affari del petrolio durante la fine del XIX e l'inizio del XX secolo, con John D. Rockefeller e suo fratello William Rockefeller in primo luogo attraverso la Standard Oil.[1] La famiglia è anche nota per la sua lunga associazione e controllo della Chase Manhattan Bank.[2] Sono considerati una delle famiglie più potenti, se non la famiglia più potente, nella storia degli Stati Uniti d'America.[3]

Contesto familiare[modifica | modifica wikitesto]

Uno dei membri fondatori della famiglia Rockefeller fu l'imprenditore William Rockefeller Sr. nato a Granger (nello Stato di New York) da un protestante: ebbe sei figli dalla sua prima moglie Eliza Davison, i più importanti dei quali furono i magnati del petrolio John D. Rockefeller e William Rockefeller, co-fondatori della Standard Oil.
