Kadenang Ginto (International title: The Heiress / lit. 'Golden Chain') is a 2018 Philippine drama television series starring Francine Diaz, Andrea Brillantes, Beauty Gonzalez, Albert Martinez, Dimples Romana, Adrian Alandy and Richard Yap. The series aired from October 8, 2018 to February 7, 2020 on ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Gold afternoon block and worldwide via The Filipino Channel, replacing Asintado.


Kadenang Ginto is the story of Romina Andrada (Beauty Gonzalez), a secretary turned wife of business tycoon Robert Mondragon (Albert Martinez), who married her despite the fact that she was raped and was carrying the child of the assailant. Unknown to Romina, it was Daniela (Dimples Romana), Robert's daughter, who had orchestrated her abduction, right before seducing Romina's fiancé, Carlos Bartolome (Adrian Alandy). With their lives intertwined, their daughters, Cassandra (Francine Diaz) and Margaret (Andrea Brillantes), are made to fight as to who the rightful heiress to Robert's empire.[2]
