Million Dollar American Princesses

84

Join Elizabeth McGovern as she takes an in-depth look at the young American heiresses whose real life stories inspired the acclaimed TV drama “Downton Abbey.” This series takes you from the late 1800s, when daughters of America's new industrial millionaires marry into the money-strapped British aristocracy, to the 20th century, when a new kind of American Princess wields power not through wealth, but through character, style, and wit. Through the decades, these women bring dramatic change to the European aristocracy and eventually the world.

Elizabeth McGovern's exploration of the women who inspired the acclaimed series Downton Abbey brings us the stories of Nancy Astor, Nancy Lancaster and Pauline de Rothschild. They crossed the Atlantic for very different reasons and embarked on very different paths to fame, but each woman shared one attribute: the desire to stand up and be heard, and they were.
