Storyline

It's 1895 and the phenomenon of the "Transatlantic Marriage Trade" has reached its height. Daughters of America's new super-rich industrialists married into British royalty at a rapid pace, but these unions came at a price, financially and emotionally. While some women found true love overseas, others, like Consuelo Vanderbilt, found themselves mired in misery, loneliness and scandal. See how these families traded cash for class, how their heiresses survived, and even thrived in their new surroundings and what their legacy is in Britain today.
