Who owns Elvis' Graceland estate in Memphis after Lisa Marie Presley's death?

As the sole trustee of her late mother's estate, actress/filmmaker Riley Keough — Elvis Presley's granddaughter and the oldest of Lisa Marie Presley's three daughters — is the owner of Graceland, the Memphis mansion bought by the King of Rock 'n' Roll in 1957.

Lisa Marie's other surviving children, twins Harper and Finley Lockwood, are teenagers, and so unable to serve as trustees of the estate.

Keough's status was affirmed in June 2023 in Los Angeles Superior Court, in a settlement between Keough and her grandmother, Priscilla Presley (Lisa Marie's mother), and Michael Lockwood (Lisa Marie's ex-husband), the father and court-appointed guardian of the twins, who are Keough's half-siblings.

Lisa Marie Presley died Jan. 12, 2023, at 54. Since her mother's death, Keough — who received a best actress Emmy nomination for her work in the Amazon Prime series "Daisy Jones & the Six," and also can be seen opposite Lily Gladstone in the Hulu crime drama "Under the Bridge" — has been an active promoter of Graceland, hosting a live NBC Christmas special at the mansion that featured such performers as Lana Del Rey and Post Malone.

A May 2024 attempted foreclosure auction on Graceland by an entity calling itself "Naussanny Investments" was based on fraudulent documents, according to Presley family members, and was dropped.
