7 Famous Fathers and their Sons Throughout History

Summer is well underway and Father's Day Weekend is here! Sunday is a day to celebrate your father, all their accomplishments and what they have done for you as a role model in your life. While there are plenty of notable Father and Son duos, here are a few famous ones for you to think about as we kick off this Father's Day Weekend! What will you and your father be known for?

1. God and Jesus 

Probably one of the most well known father and son pair, at least for Christians, is God and Jesus. Most religions have some sort of father figure. Because Christianity is the world's largest religion by number of adherents, its father-son narrative is naturally the most globally culturally significant in human history. Their father and son relationship is possibly the most written about of all fathers and sons in human history given the extensive debates that have concerned them over the years.

2. King David and King Solomon

While most monarchies have sons that take the crown after their father, one of the most well-known pair of kings is David and Solomon. Their influence on Judaism and Christianity alike is what gives them their position as the most famous and influential kings in human history. David is a central figure in Jewish, Christian and Islamic doctrine and culture. He is revered as a great warrior and his son Solomon followed right in his footsteps. Both have been depicted in various forms of pop culture through the years.

3. John Adams and John Quincy Adams

When it comes to politics, a lot of sons admire to be as successful as their fathers. One of the most notable father and son politician combinations is John Adams and his son. America exists in part because of these two great men. John Adams was a lawyer and the first vice president of the United States. He moved on to become the second President, with his most significant accomplishment being making peace with Napoleonic France. The political career of his son, John Quincy Adams is almost as impressive. He was both a senator and a congressman. He was also the eighth United States Secretary of State and the sixth President. After his presidency, he successfully argued for the defendants in United States vs. The Amistad Africans in the Supreme Court. Their father and son work on modern notions of democracy and anti-slavery has benefited humanity and civilization profoundly.

4. Martin Luther King Sr. and Martin Luther King Jr. 

Martin Luther King Jr.'s influence on the Civil Rights Movement makes him one of the most iconic figures in American history. His father Martin Luther King Sr. was an American Baptist pastor, missionary and an early figure in the American Civil Rights Movement. He rose to become the head of the MAACP in Atlanta and the Civic and Political League. Martin Luther King Jr. soon became a popular civil rights activist himself. While Martin Luther King Jr. may be more well known than his father due to the "I Have a Dream" speech, both are credited for the amazing work they did to give African Americans greater rights.

5. Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas

Many famous actors and actresses get their start because of their parents being in the business. While there are many notable actors, one pair that has a long term influence on the film industry is Kirk and Michael Douglas. Kirk's acting career spans over fifty years, giving him an AFI Life Achievement Award and three Academy Award nominations for best actor, in addition to other major award nominations. His son's career started in 1966 and he is still successful today. Michael Douglas has had over a dozen nominations and even wins for major acting awards. He too has accepted an AFI Life Achievement Award, making these two the only father and son to ever receive such an honor to that point in history.

6. Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Dale Earnhardt Jr. 

Dale Earnhardt Sr. was an American race car driver and team owner. He is known for his involvement in stock car racing for NASCAR and is known as one of the best drivers of all time. He won a total of 76 Winston Cup races over the course of his career including one Daytona 500 victory. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is continuing what his father started and has also been very successful in NASCAR. He is a two-time Daytona 500 winner and has won the Most Popular Driver Award twelve times now. Together, the Ernhardts have definitely made a name for themselves in the sports industry.

7. Julio Iglesias and Enrique Iglesias

The spanish singer Julio Iglesias has sold over 300 million records worldwide in fourteen languages. He realeased 80 albums and is the best selling Latin music artist in history. His son, Enrique, has also had a successful music career, as well as a career in modeling, acting and producing records. He is one of the biggest stars in Latin American and the Hispanic Market in the United States as the biggest seller of Spanish-language albums of the 1990s!

Happy Father's Day from Summerset Inn Resort! We hope that you have a great weekend celebrating with your fathers. If you're looking for a last minute gift, why not give him a fishing trip?
