They were born into a family of Hungarian-Jewish background, in Budapest, Hungary to Vilmos and Jolie Gabor. The family moved to New York in the wake of World War II. Magda had played a small role in a Hungarian film before the war, so Jolie and her three daughters moved to Hollywood to break into the film business.
Their claim to fame, perhaps beyond their acting careers, is that of serial matrimony: being known for their numerous marriages. Magda was married six times, Zsa Zsa eight times (or nine, as one marriage was later annulled), and Eva five times. British actor George Sanders was first married to Zsa Zsa and later to Magda.
Zsa Zsa's only child, Constance Francesca Hilton, was born on 10 March 1947, by then-husband Conrad Hilton. Zsa Zsa was the only Gabor sister to have a child. Francesca Hilton died on 5 January 2015, at the age of 67, from an apparent stroke or heart attack. She had no children.
