Summary:
One of America's wealthiest families, the Astors dominated the high-society scene on both sides of the Atlantic. And their splendid homes were the ultimate proof of their status as American royalty. Travel to historic Newport, Rhode Island, to tour the magnificent Beechwood, one of the crown jewels of that resort city's world-famous mansions. With 62 rooms filled with hand-carved furniture, museum-quality art and astonishing craftsmanship it is one of the most opulent and exquisite homes ever built. It also required a staff of 24! Next, visit the two real castles the Astors bought in London. Wander the gardens of glorious Clivenden Castle, high above the Thames River north of London, and explore the painstakingly restored medieval Hever Castle, once the home of tragic queen Anne Boleyn. In this ancient fortress complete with moat the superstitious William Waldorf Astor spent many hours trying to contact the ghost of the dead queen!
