The Hilton Family.
Conrad Hilton entered the hotel business in 1919. The son of a Norwegian immigrant, he was a firm believer in the American Dream and was successful at negotiating her economic waters. Success yielded glamour for the Hiltons; Conrad's second wife was Zsa Zsa Gabor and his son Nicky (by a first marriage) was once married to Elizabeth Taylor. Unfortunately, Nicky suffered an untimely, tragic death. Most of Conrad's wealth was inherited by another son, Barron (Paris and Nicky's grandfather). From Conrad to Paris the name Hilton resonates across America as family members continue the innovative business endeavors which put them on the map.
