Abstract
In the Romanian historiography, after 1990, there have been noticed numerous preoccupations of the specialists, to rebuilt aspects from the life and activity of some people who left their mark on the area in which they activated. Simian family wrote a significant part of history from the town of Rm. Vâlcea, as a prosperous family, whose members rapidly advanced on the ladder of the social hierarchy of the town that spreads around Capela Hill. We managed to create an image of this old family from Oltenia, with the objective, limited by the so far researched sources, to reveal aspects from the economic, financial, political and private area of their life.

Keywords
Simian family, Râmnicu. Vâlcea, industrialists, politicians, destiny.
