Brian Epstein and the Beatles arrive at London Airport on July 8, 1966. Almost a year later, Brian Epstein's father Harry would pass away. A month later, Brian would also be gone.
I am not the expert on this subject, as the Administrator Eppylover usually knows the answers. But, I will help you the best I can. I include a small quote from a newspaper article shortly after Brian Epstein's death in regards to his estate at the time:
"Brian Epstein’s mother, Queenie, inherits as the next of kin. Epstein’s estate is believed to be worth approximately $21 million. But it’s said that death taxes on this would be tremendous."
Brian Epstein died on August 27, 1967 by accidental drug overdose. His father Harry Epstein died a month earlier on July 7 1967 at the age of 63. Brian had one other sibling, a brother two years younger than him named Clive. Brian Epstein's younger brother Clive died of a heart attack in 1988 at age 51. The mother Malka "Queenie" Epstein passed away in 1997. Brian Epstein's immediate family had all passed.
After Brian Epstein's death, Clive and his wife Barbara had a son. They named their son Henry Brian Epstein (after Clive's brother). Brian Epstein's nephew Henry is in charge of the Brian Epstein (and family) estate. He has also given consent to the making of The Fifth Beatle movie.
