An efficient manager of his brother 约翰·肯尼迪's presidential campaign, he was an energetic Attorney General (1961-64), notably in his dealings with civil rights problems. He became senator from New York in 1965. After winning the Californian Democratic presidential primary election, he was shot at a hotel in Los Angeles. His assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, a 24-year-old Jordanian-born immigrant, was sentenced to the gas chamber in 1969, but was not executed.

Brother of U.S. Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith, 约翰·肯尼迪, 泰德·肯尼迪, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Patricia Kennedy, Rosemary Kennedy, Kathleen Kennedy and Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. He harbored strong disdain for 林登·贝恩斯, his older brother's vice president [who ultimately took over as president after John's death] and the feeling was mutual. In stark contrast to his older brother 约翰·肯尼迪's poor health, Robert was a very strong and physically active man who enjoyed hiking and kayaking, among other outdoor activities. Was a close friend of 罗伯特·沃恩. Family friend Andy Williams sang the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" at his funeral. Williams named his son Bobby Williams in honor of Kennedy. When Kennedy was assassinated at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on June 5, 1968, it was his friend 约翰·弗兰克海默 who had personally driven him there that day Died the same day as Randolph Churchill, the only son of 温斯顿·丘吉尔. Became close to actor 沃伦·比蒂 during his 1968 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Beatty's relationship with Robert was closer than the one he had with 约翰·肯尼迪 while JFK was president. Beatty was particularly valuable in firing up volunteers for such mundane activities as door-to-door canvassing. Bobby was impressed by Beatty's thorough understanding of the issues. After Bobby's assassination in Beatty's hometown of Los Angeles, Beatty became a vocal gun control advocate. He once got into a contest with 理查德·伯顿, who greatly admired him, in which they tried to outdo the other by quoting 莎士比亚's sonnets. Both were word-perfect, and Burton was forced to "win" the contest by quoting one of the sonnets backwards, a feat Bobby could not match. A wax replica of his head from the defunct Hollywood Wax Museum was auctioned off for a winning bid of $200 during a live auction on eBay on May 11, 2006. Interred at Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Virginia, about 100 yards to the left of his brother's grave. Was portrayed by 斯蒂文·卡普 in 惊爆十三天 (2000), 莱纳斯·罗彻 in 罗伯特·肯尼迪 (2002), Dave Fraunces in 鲍比 (2006), and 蒂姆·兰塞姆 in A Woman Named Jackie (1991). Grandson of Congressman John F. Fitzgerald. Son of 老约瑟夫·肯尼迪 and Rose Kennedy. In 1965, still mourning his brother John's death, he journeyed to Canada to climb Mount Kennedy (on the Alasken-Canadian border) which had been named in his brother's honor. Breaking away from the team of experienced mountain climbers, Kennedy made it to the summit making him the first man ever to reach the top. The hotel in which he was shot, the Los Angeles Ambassador, has since been torn down. Kennedy assassin Sirhan Sirhan is currently confined at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in southern San Diego County serving life sentence (his early death sentence was reversed due to California laws that invalidated such convictions prior to 1972) . The R.I.C.O. (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) act of 1970, which has been used to bring about widespread indictments against Organized Crime and the Federal Witness Protection Program is said to have been the brainchild of Robert F. Kennedy when he was the Attorney General. When he was a senator he hired Jeff Greenfield as a speechwriter, who stayed until Kennedy was assassinated. Wife Ethel was three months pregnant with their daughter 罗瑞·肯尼迪 when he was assassinated. He was of Irish descent. Resigned as U.S. Attorney General in 1964 to run for a U.S. Senate seat in New York. Several of his critics accused him of being a 'carpet bagger' with very few ties, if any, to New York. Furthermore, he was ineligible to vote on November 3rd, 1964, the day of the election, because he did not meet the state property qualifications at the time. Despite this, he went on to narrowly win the seat and served in the Senate until his death in 1968. Initially advocated a full-scale military invasion of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis, a fact he did not mention in his memoirs. Is one of just two sitting U.S. senators to be assassinated, the other being Huey Long. He was the only Kennedy son to complete his father's challenge to not drink or smoke until his twenty-first birthday (for which his father rewarded him with $1,000), and he didn't have any ash trays in his home (unusual for the 50's-60's). Grandfather of Saoirse Kennedy-Hill and Joe Kennedy III.
