Summary, Etc. At the height of the great oil boom in the 1800s, John D. Rockefeller was seemingly unstoppable. By 1889, he was at the peak of his power, having created one of the largest monopolies in history, so powerful that even the U.S. government was wary of challenging the great "anaconda" of Standard Oil. The Standard never loses - that is, until the unlikely duo of Marcus Samuel and Henri Deterding teamed up to form Royal Dutch Shell, and set the stage for the toppling of Standard Oil.
