Once known as the "Lord High Executioner" of Murder, Inc. and head of the Gambino Family, Albert Anastasia was one of the most feared bosses in the New York Mafia. Originally from Italy, he allegedly controlled a fierce racketeering business along the New York City waterfront for years.
"The godfather was born Vito Andolini, in the town of Corleone in Sicily. In 1901 his father was murdered for an insult to the local Mafia chieftain. His older brother Paolo swore revenge and disappeared into the hills, leaving Vito, the only male heir, to stand with his mother at the funeral. He was nine years old."
