The Kennedy curse is a term for the series of misfortunes involving members of the Kennedy family of the United States of America.[1][2][3][3][4][5][6][7][8] While Ted Kennedy publicly wondered whether a "curse actually did hang over all the Kennedys" during his own testimony about the Chappaquiddick incident in 1969,[9] skeptics have argued that many of the events are normal, and it is not improbable that a large extended family would experience them.[10][11]
