AT&T was a monopoly for many years. Somehow allowed - maybe their infrastructure was the excuse.

Eventually the government broke them up - but it does satisfy "name a monopoly".

In general, Pres Theodore Roosevelt put the nail in that coffin, for both true monopolies and trust (virtual monopolies). That was over a century ago (here).

It works so well, even organized crime is competitive.
