List Rules Vote up the real-life sibling pairs that are greater than the sum of their parts.

Teamwork makes the dream work and these real-life sibling duos worked together to earn their place in the history books. Famous duos are cool, but famous sibling duos are cooler because they somehow overcame any animosity to forge lasting creative partnerships in music, film and so much more.

There are famous brother and sister pairs like actors John and Joan Cusack, sisters like Beyoncé and Solange Knowles and brothers like Ethan and Joel Coen. From all the way back to Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, transcribing Europe's folklore, right on up to Venus and Serena Williams who are still breaking records with their athletic skills, these are the best sibling duos of all time. You might not even know that some of these pairs were siblings.

What famous sibling duo has best teamed up to take over the history books? If we forgot one of the best sibling pairs, be sure to add them to the list!
