The Rockefellers feared the temptations of wealth, but a visitor described their estate as a place God would have built, if only he would have had the money.

Their fortune outraged a democratic nation before they gave it away. They were the closest thing America had to a royal family but they shunned the public eye.

Their estate was serene, but some of those closest to it described it as a prison that “cut us off from the larger world.”

This is the story of the dynasty behind Standard Oil.

There is a lot more about the Rockefellers of which this documentary does not even scratch the surface. The uploader urges viewers to do more of their own research.
