Sebastián d'Anconia

Sebastián d'Anconia, (Atlas Shrugged) legendary father of Franciso d'Anconia, was among the most powerful men under the omnipotent sovereignty of Spain, when he gave it all up rather than kowtow to the Inquisition.

An exile in Argentina, he starts over with little more than a pickaxe and a few starving Indians, to rebuild his fortune in 15 years, corroborating the idea that getting your own empire all comes down to the Will to Power.

“Sebastián d’Anconia threw the contents of his wine glass at the face of the lord of the Inquisition, and escaped before he could be seized”

–Atlas Shrugged
