Updated June 9, 2020 19.3k views11 items

Relatives of famous historical figures have to deal with profound ancestral pressure and expectations, which is doubly true for those who have descended from famous assassination victims. For instance, the children and grandchildren of former presidents have had to sustain a powerful political legacy, while assassinated presidents' descendants must take on an unfinished legacy. The murders of notable historical figures have impacted both the victim's family members and the world at large, as some expect the surviving relatives to continue their loved one's story. Many of these individuals understandably shirk the spotlight, but others endeavor to make their own mark in history.
