Al Capone Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Alphonse Gabriel Capone was born in 1899, in New York. He died in 1947. He was one of nine children to Italian immigrants. He is mostly known as an American gangster Al Capone who became rich and famous during the Prohibition era, when he and his two brothers were running the criminal empire known as the Chicago Outfit, which has definitely had the biggest impact on his total net worth.

So, just how rich was Al Capone? Well, the net worth of this crime boss was projected to be over $100 million by sources, the larger part of his wealth having come from the period during the prohibition. It was estimated that by 1929, Capone’s profits from the diverse sources of his business included: over $60 million from selling illegal alcohol, about $25 million from the gambling business, over $15 million from racketeering. It was believed that Capone had over 600 gangsters to keep his business from other gangs. He lived in a mansion on South Beach’s Palm Island. The 6,100-square-foot mansion’s grandiose size and cost only affected his tax problems. However, he kept the mansion, and retired there after his discharge. It is estimated that his empire would worth around $1.3 billion nowadays.

The Capones immigrated to the United States, first by travelling from Italy to Austria-Hungary in 1893, where they took a ship and sailed to the U.S. They at last settled in the Navy Yard sector of Brooklyn, where Al spent his childhood. When he was 11, the Capone family moved to another part of Brooklyn. He attended a catholic school, but he was expelled because he hit a teacher when he was 14 years old. He first became a bouncer in organized crime grounds such as brothels. When Capone was young, he went to Chicago and became a bodyguard and jack of all trades for Johnny Torrio, who was leading, at the time, a criminal organization which illegitimately sold alcohol. This organization was the predecessor of the Outfit, which they founded together. His organization was politically secluded by the Unione Siciliana. A clash with the North Side Gang was influential in Al Capone’s ascend and descend. Namely, Torrio retired after North Side hitman nearly killed him, giving control to Capone who was the co-founder and then became the boss of the Chicago Outfit. He proceeded to have a seven year reign as the crime boss during the Prohibition era. He expanded the illegal business through even more brutal means, because his reciprocally beneficial agreement with mayor William Hale Thompson and the city’s law enforcement made him untouchable. His seven-year period of influence as a crime boss was finished when 33-year-old Capone was sentenced to spend 11 years in a federal prison, part of which he spent in the famous Alcatraz. He tried to bribe the judges and appeal, but ultimately he failed. He was already presenting signs of syphilitic dementia during his life in prison, but even more when he was released eight years later. He died of a cardiac arrest after he had a stroke. Al Capone was presented in numerous books and films ever since.

Concerning his personal life, he married Mae Josephine Coughlin in 1918, when he was just 19 years old, so his parents had to consent to the marriage in writing. She was Irish Catholic. Earlier that month, she had given birth to their son Albert.

10 Great-uncle of Dominic Capone.
11 His lawyer, who testified against him in court, was named Edward O'Hare, or "Easy Eddie." Chicago's O'Hare International Airport is named for his son, Edward "Butch" O'Hare Jr. Butch O'Hare, of course, is the WWII Medal of Honor winner who saved his aircraft carrier by single-handedly shooting down seven to eight Japanese bombers.
12 Spent eight months, from August 1929 to March 1930, in the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia for possession of a concealed weapon. He stopped in Philadelphia while returning to Chicago from an outing in Atlantic City and was stopped by police, who frisked him and found the weapon on him.
13 His estate tried to halt the production of the hit television series The Untouchables (1959). Their final tactic was to claim that the series was unfairly profiting from the Capone name.
14 More than a decade after his death, his infamy was re-established due to the Allied Artists biopic Al Capone (1959) with Rod Steiger in the title role. More importantly, however, later that same year he became a central figure in the hit television series The Untouchables (1959), where he was portrayed, on a recurring basis, by Neville Brand.
15 He was the first to open free "soup kitchens" in Chicago at the beginning of the Great Depression. He also arranged to buy clothing for the needy.
16 His son was nicknamed "Sonny." Mario Puzo used this as the nickname for the son of Vito Corleone in his book "The Godfather."
17 During his confinement in the federal penitentiary at Atlanta, it was discovered that he was still able to run his empire from his cell, which had been converted into an apartment. He was then transferred to the new federal prison at Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay, where his means of communications were virtually cut off.
18 He, and some of his future associates, were members of New York's notorious Five Points Gang.
19 He rose from the position of saloon bouncer to the leading crime boss of Chicago in a period of only six years.
20 Well into the 1960s, The Guinness Book of World Records listed him holding the record for the highest personal income. He listed his trade as "second hand furniture dealer."
21 Older brother Vince Capone, a.k.a Richard 'Two-Gun' Hart, was a policeman in Nebraska. He was involved with stopping illegal bootlegging during Prohibition, while brother Al profited from it in Chicago.
22 Was released in 1939 after serving five years at Alcatraz. He attempted to regain control of organized crime in Chicago, but could not. He then retired to Florida.
23 Was incarcerated at Alcatraz Prison in San Francisco.
24 Was sentenced to 11 years in prison for income tax evasion.
25 The distinguishing scars on Capone's face that gave him his famous nickname came from an incident in 1918 while he was working in a saloon. One night he approached a woman named Lena Galluchio and made a crude sexual advance. Her brother Frank, a well-known thief nicknamed "The Galluch", insisted that Capone apologize. Capone refused and without a word Galluchio slashed his face twice with a razor.
26 One child: Albert Francis (4 December 1918 - 8 July 2004). Albert did not follow in his notorious father's footsteps, instead, he supported his wife and their four daughters with a variety of jobs, and, aside from a shoplifting conviction in 1965, was a law-abiding citizen. In 1966, he changed his name to Albert Brown; "Brown" was one of his father's many aliases. His godfather was Al's mentor, real-life godfather Johnny Torrio.

1 A lawyer and his briefcase can steal more than ten men with guns.
2 I don't even know what street Canada is on.
3 It's bootleg when it's on the trucks, but whenever your host hands it to you on a silver tray, it's hospitality.
4 They can't collect legal taxes from illegal money.
5 You can get further with a kind word and a gun, than you can with just a kind word.
6 You can go a long way with a smile. You can go a lot farther with a smile and a gun.
