The Kennedy family is one of the most famous families in the world, but their history has been plagued by tragedies commonly know
as "The Kennedy Curse". The curse is applied to the family's nine children, thirty one grandchildren, and sixty five great grandchildren
and their spouses? especially that of the 3rd generation consisting of Joe Jr., Jack, Bobby and Teddy. The wealth, glamour and
photogenic quality of the family members, as well as their extensive and continuing commitment to public service, has elevated
them to iconic status over the past half -century and has led to their reputation as "America's Royal Family". But for all of the family's wealth, power and influence over the United States of America and the world, they have suffered through some of the greatest personal, and public,
tragedies. These events, and their impact on the lives of the Kennedy family, are known as "The Kennedy Curse".
