Christian Holmes IV's parents

There is a rich history behind the Holmes family name and the men, but not much has been documented about the wives. Christian's great-grandfather, Dr Christian Rasmus Holmes, married Bettie Fleischmann, the heiress of the Fleischmann Yeast empire.

This marriage gave his name both status and wealth. The doctor had his notoriety as a surgeon and helped establish the Cincinnati General Hospital and the University of Cincinnati Medical School.

Capt Christian R. Holmes II led the second generation. He served in World War I. He was one of the first recipients of the Distinguished Service Cross. He bought and developed the Coconut Islands and was known to host extravagant parties.

The escapades of the third generation were not as well recorded as the first two. It is noted that Elizabeth's father blamed his father and grandfather for squandering away the family fortune on excessive drinking and multiple marriages.

Christian Holmes IV's children

He has two children with his wife Noel, Elizabeth, the eldest and Christian V, his son.

Elizabeth Anne

Elizabeth is the founder of the company Real-Time Cures, which she later renamed Theranos. She dropped out of Stanford to focus solely on her company and used her education funds as seed money.

She first went into medicine like her great-great-grandfather but found she was scared of needles. Her fear is what inspired her to start her company. Elizabeth's business idea was that her company could run tests using a finger prink instead of collecting blood samples using needles. She managed to secure almost $700 million in capital from investors.

Her tenure as CEO was described in a bad light. From asinine work hours and tracking employees' movements to having security guards escort visitors, all to prevent company secrets from being leaked.

Her house of cards started falling in March 2018 when she was charged with fraud. She had a lengthy trial, was found guilty of wire fraud and was sentenced to over 11 years in prison.

He recruited his Duke University fraternity brothers to join the company. Christian and his friends were dubbed the "Frat Pack and "Therabros".
