Forbes listed the world's richest royals for 2008.  http://www.forbes.com/bus...cz_ts_0820royalintro.html.  I'm surprised Thailand is on the top of the list.  Brunei went down to second place.  Liechtenstein has the highest ranking for European monarchs.

I would have thought Auntie Bettie in England would have done well on such a list, but, alas, wrong am I again.

I'm fairly doubtful of this list, they seem to have underestimated quite a few Royals wealth.

I'm sure I've read elsewhere that the UAE and Moroccan Royals are worth more than stated and I think the Sultan of Brunei is worth less. He was involved with some bad investments I think.

I believe those middle east RF could be on the top of the list as well. There is a fact that not every RF (incl saudi RF) is willing to share information of how much (in exact no) their fortune is to outsider Thinking.

I agree with LS, I too am not sure about the accuracy of this list.

Also, between Queen Elizabeth and Queen Beatrix, I would have thought Q B's personal wealth is greater than that of Q E. I remember reading somewhere that from Q Juliana, each of her 4 daughters inherited about 65 million euros each and from Prince Bernhard, each inherited 30 million euros. Add that to the private palaces and shares in Shell Oil and she becomes a very rich monarch. But not I guess as rich as her Liechtenstein counterpart.

I thought Luxembourg was a very wealthy monarchy, but they're not even on the list.

I would take a smart, sweet, handsome half-millionaire thankyouverymuch! 

For that 1 billion, you gotta roll around naked with that fat, hairy, sweaty, nasty, smelly, used man every single night for the rest of your life. (And I bet he grunts and snorts too.)

I repeat....EVERY SINGLE NIGHT FOR THE REST OF YOU LIFE.  Yikes

Of course there are.  In many countries, there are nobles wealthier than the British noble families.  If you read the threads on this board, you'll see. 

The British do not have the monopoly on royalty and nobility.  They're not even the oldest or grandest European royal family.  They're certainly not the most interesting.

They could easily be the most overrated, though. And the dullest.

They certainly top my list for those two categories.
