マクスウェルの子供たちはどうなったのか? ギスレインが裁判を待つ間, Femailは9人の兄弟の非常に岩だらけの運命を明らかにします, ドットコムブームの億万長者から破産まで, divorce and a fatal car crash
A quick glance at the fortunes of the Maxwell siblings and it is difficult not to think the nine children of tyrannical media mogul Robert Maxwell were cursed from the start.
Most famous among them is his youngest – and favourite – ギレーヌ, the disgraced socialite who is waiting to stand trial on a string of charges relating to the trafficking minors for her former lover ジェフリーエプスタイン.
マクスウェル, who denies all charges, faces a maximum sentence of 80 years in prison if found guilty of abuse, procurement of young girls for Epstein and sex trafficking crimes dating back decades.
Her brother Ian, 65, the seventh of the nine Maxwell children, has been a vocal supporter of his sister and spoke out again this week in her defence, saying he believes the ‘enormous amount of negative media coverage’ of the case will ‘poison’ the jury against her.
Ian has had his fair share of experience in court. 1990年代に, he and younger brother Kevin stood trial for their part in their father’s £460 million Mirror Group pension fraud.
But what of the other Maxwell children?
MailOnline looks at the fate of Ghislaine’s eight siblings, from the brilliant scientist brother who fled to Argentina to escape his father, the children Maxwell bullied, the twins who became dotcom millionaires, and the tragic sister who died in childhood.

She was married twice. Her first husband was U.S. film-maker Dale Djerassi, with whom she has a son, and then she wed Magellan co-founder David Hayden.
Her third ‘husband’, illusionist Al Seckel, was once a significant player in the Californian literary, academic and celebrity scene. He was famous for holding parties for the great and good. Jeffrey Epstein was a friend.

Christine was an editor for Pergamon Press Publishers, co-founded by her father, in the early 1970s and remained in his employ in the 1980s. She also spent time as a teacher in Oxford.
In a rare interview in 1998, she spoke of the years spent in her father’s publishing business: ‘Both of my parents had a strong work ethic, which they instilled in me and my brothers and sisters when we were very young.
‘They also communicated a very clear understanding that advantages always come with responsibilities — that there was no such thing as a free ride.’
に 1977 she published The Dictionary Of Perfect Spelling (の本 20,000 中学生向けの言葉) with her father’s Pergamon Press. The title became an international bestseller and has been reprinted several times.

Her death shaped how the devastated parents would eventually view the birth of their daughter next daughter, ギレーヌ, four years later.
Karine’s death upset the family’s ‘balance’ of ‘four boys and four girls’, Ian Maxwell explained in an interview.
‘So when my parents had another little girl [ギレーヌ] it was really magic, it allowed the four boys and four girls to be recreated,’ Ian said. To add to the sense of miracle, she was born on Christmas Day.

So three years ago, in the middle of the Greek financial crisis, they launched an organisation similar to the Prince’s Trust in Greece which has raised millions of euros and helped to launch several hundred businesses.
Maxwell announced in September 2018 that he and his brother Kevin had founded a UK think tank, Combating Jihadist Terrorism (CoJit), with the aim of better understanding terrorism and its causes.

に 1998, he went on to co-found media company Telemonde, a US-based commercial vehicle for what he hoped would be ‘the Maxwell comeback story’. It was not to be.
When Telemonde floated in 1999, Kevin looked on course to becoming a multi-millionaire; on paper he owned a seven per cent stake, worth £16 million.
しかしによって 2001, the company had debts of more than £100 million and failed. Kevin then moved into high end commercial property.
