Nissaga de poder (English: Lineage of power) was a Catalan TV soap opera which was broadcast on TV3 from 1996 to 1998. It became one of TV3's most popular TV series. It was created by Josep Maria Benet i Jornet and adapted to TV by Jordi Arcarazo.[1]


Eulália and Mateu Montsolís are two siblings who are owners of two diggings located in the region of Penedès, the Montsolís Diggings. They are members of one of the richest families in the region.

The plot revolves around the incestuous love between Eulalia and Mateu, which gave birth to a son, Eduard. But the Montsolís cannot allow this to become public - the scandal would cause irreversible damage. They believe that Eduard is a bastard child of a sporadic relationship between Mateu Montsolís and one of his many lovers, Estivill Angels. Eduard was raised by family workers, Tomas and Assumpció.

The deceptions, murders, gambling, envy and murky relationships between members of a powerful family in the midst of a stifling atmosphere are the plot of the series.



On May 12, 1999, TV3 premiered a sequel called Nissaga: L'herència as a weekly series. The plot occurs 16 years after the final of the original series and is based around the following generation of the Montsolís. However, the series received poor reviews and ended on January 19, 2000, with only 26 episodes.[citation needed]
