We don’t have royal families in the United States, but we are still fascinated with their every move. In the media, their special events, weddings and birth announcements make for great headlines.
Some of the richest people on the planet are born to royal families and have more money than they will ever know what to do with. Queen Elizabeth II of England isn’t on the list because her $450 million didn’t cut the mustard.
Some of these filthy rich royals are so wealthy that we had to investigate the source of their immense net worth and what they’re doing with all of that cash.
10. Karim al-Hussayni, Aga Khan IV ($800 Million)
Karim is of royal descent and the current Imam of Nizari Ismailism after assuming the role in 1957. Strangely enough, he doesn’t have rule over any specific territory and is considered an insanely successful business man. He breeds race horses and owns exclusive clubs that cater to a wealthy clientele. His net worth dipped to $800 million following the recession after he was once a billionaire. Still, having that kind of money is nothing to sneeze at!
