Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Lee Radziwill followed in their mother Janet’s footsteps after her marriages to the philandering socialite “Black Jack” Bouvier and the fabulously rich Standard Oil heir Hugh D. Auchincloss. Jacqueline would marry John F. Kennedy, and the story of their marriage is legendary, as is the story of her second marriage to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. Less well known is the story of her love affair with a world-renowned architect and a British peer. Jackie's sister, Lee, had liaisons with one and possibly both of Jackie's husbands, in addition to her own three marriages --- to an illegitimate royal, a Polish prince and a Hollywood director.
