The Kennedy tragedies,[1][2][3] colloquially known as the Kennedy Curse, is a term sometimes used to describe a series of events involving members of the Kennedy family.[3][4][5][6][7][8] The notion of a curse is superstitious and was created and is fostered by the news media.[9][10][11] The curse is applied to the family's nine children, thirty-one grandchildren, and sixty-five great-grandchildren and their spouses.

ChronologyEdit

Believers in the curse generally cite the following core events as evidence of the family's misfortunes:
