Athina Onassis-de Miranda


Heiress to the Onassis Fortune

Athina Onassis was left alone when her mother died except for her father Roussel. Her mother Christine Onassis had not quite trusted the father. So he was not in charge of the money that would come to Athina later in life. She had guardians appointed to help her and to be in charge of the money until she came of age.

People wondered what would happen to her when she did come into the money. She has been married to a famous athlete that rides horses now that is from Brazil named Doda or Alvaro de Miranda. So her name now has been changed to Athina Onassis-de Miranda according to the latest news. She has moved there now to Brazil.

Athina is riding horses also. She was lately in the news for riding in a horse show jumping event.

She has been heard to say that she does not really like Greek things. Why exactly was not clear.

She was the sole heir other than the fund that was set up, to the Onassis fortune. There are estimates but people are not really sure what she is worth. The estimate is about one billion dollars. But they are not really sure if it is that much since it can be over estimated.

Her mother Christina had some hard luck and trouble sometimes with the press. There was trouble before Athina's wedding with some TV news and they decided to not let photographers near their wedding event. Her own father was not at the wedding.

Notes on Heirs and Heiresses

We can't all be wealthy. We would certainly like to be. We might do things differently. It is fun to see what these people do with their money and what happens. Maybe it will give us some ideas. Many of the founders started with nothing. Rich people can be nice or hard to deal with.

On the link here there are seven other Hollywood names that are also very rich. It is pretty surprising. I had seen part of that before. The name Dreyfus had sounded familiar.

The names are: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Anderson Cooper, Armie Hammer, Edward Norton, Chevy Chase, Balthazar Getty, and Brooke Shields. See the link for more information and where they inherited the money from.

There are other wealthy heirs and heiresses. They are all not in the spotlight or making news.
