Misery of the Maxwells: Bankruptcy, sudden death, huge fortunes made and lost ...


Robert Maxwell was a ruthless bully who rose from impoverished beginnings in Czechoslovakia to become a multi-millionaire publisher living a life of luxury — funded by £460 million stolen from the Mirror Group pension pot.

His youngest daughter — and 'favourite' child — Ghislaine is now in hiding in the wake of the death of her ex-lover and mentor, the paedophile and alleged sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. 

But what of the other Maxwell siblings? From a brilliant scientist who fled to Argentina, to a former actress branded 'ugly' by her bullying father, they have all had their fair share of ups and perhaps inevitable downs. 

Christine and her twin sister Isabel made The Sunday Times Rich List in 1999 after amassing their £100 million in the dotcom boom. But Isabel would later fall on hard times, and was declared bankrupt in 2015.
