In 1934, a woman named Elzire Dionne gave birth to the first known quintuplets. 

The Dionne Quintuplets were quarantined at birth, and grew up as a spectacle for the world, featured in theme parks, commercials and Hollywood films.

It is widely known that, despite their immense wealth and popularity, Yvonne, Marie, Emilie, Annette and Cecile led tragic, alienated lives.
