The Greek shipping magnate's granddaughter, Athina Onassis Roussel, 28, agreed to sell the island of Skorpios, a pearl of the Ionian Sea off the coast of Greece. A Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev bought island with the Aristotle Onassis’ tomb for $100 million (€76.3 million), media reported. The island has three residences, a helipad and a dock.

Greek shipowner Aristotle Onassis bought the island of Skorpios in 1962 for just 3.5 million drachmas, the equivalent of about £10,000 (€11,720). It took five years for the resettlement of the forested island without water and electricity. At the bottom of the sea had the drinking water, and from the mainland brought thousands of trees and plants. October 20, 1968 Aristotle Onassis married Jackie Kennedy, widow of the assassinated U.S. President John F. Kennedy.

Athina Onassis previously reported that she didn’t ready to part with the Greek island, as Aristotle Onassis in his will said that area with the tomb of the family prohibited from selling.
