The family's fortune began to grow after John Jacob Astor, a German immigrant, founded the American Fur Company in 1808. Learn more about John Jacob and his descendants, including William Backhouse, William Waldorf, John Jacob IV and John Jacob V, as well as Brooke and Madeleine Force Astor—who scored their own fortunes by marrying into the Astor family—only at Biography.com.

America was introduced to the newest—and possibly the most dysfuctional—family to premiere on television with Arrested Development in 2003. The wealthy Bluths saw their lives come crashing down before them after the arrest of family patriarch George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor). Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) is left to pick up the pieces and keep his family together, creating a hilarious dynamic between the ragtag cast, including Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Michael Cera and Will Arnett. Several years after its 2006 cancelation, the series came back into the spotlight in 2013—due in no small part to its enormous, cult-like following.
