Award-winning drama series following the rise and fall of Dolf Groenewald, who grows from poor orphan into supermarket magnate. After his parents' death, young Dolf Groenewald goes to live with the family of Jollyboy Roodt, his father's former partner in crime. Jollyboy has two children: Herman, who becomes Dolf's greatest adversary; and Rika, who is deeply in love with Dolf - though the love of his life is Santie, the girl who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, just like him. Dolf dedicates his entire life to his dream: to start a shop "as big as a rugby field, where you can buy everything." With the help of the Roodts and Dolf's friend Koos Bensien, Superspaar is born. But can Dolf manage to keep control of his empire, or will Herman and his son Fransie finally manage to usurp the throne? Konings was also the story of the political rise and fall of the Afrikaner - starting at the end of the Second World War in 1945, and ending in 1990, with State President F.W. de Klerk's historic announcement that the ANC and other resistance movements would be unbanned.
