Who are the richest Royal Families in the entire world?

Being a royal is one of the most difficult professions out there but it definitely comes with a wealthy reward. These are the top 5 richest royal families whose wealth you won’t be able to imagine.

Ruling a country is not an easy task, what’s more, it is a full-time job that, in the case of the monarchy, takes all the efforts of a lifetime. At least, all those efforts are very well remunerated as we can see, and that allows them to build a great fortune either from public or private sources to live their lives in complete luxury.

Whatever the case may be, some of their net worths are absolutely unimaginable for our common eyes, but which are the top 5 richest royal families in the world?


5. The Windsors (British Royal Family)

You guessed it right; the most famous royal family had to be on this list with a huge fortune inside their pockets that rounds $88 billion. Naturally, the Queen is the richest of them all, but the rest of the members, from Prince Charles to the Queen's great-grandchildren, are also super financially stable thanks to all the different income sources that they have.

4. The House of Nahyan (Abu Dhabi's Royal Family)

Their net worth is about $150 billion and within the same family is the fourth richest Royal in the world, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahayan, whose fortune adds up to be around $15 billion. In this case, most of their wealth comes from their oil reserves through the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, which manages $875 billion in assets.


3. The House of Thani (Qatar's Royal Family)

The one and only family who has turned out to be a record-breaker on matters of wealth has surprisingly the third place on this list. It of course, also includes their representative, Sheik Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in the ninth place of the top 10 richest Royals with $1.2 billion. The family's net worth is said to be $335 billion generated through the ownership of great stakes in businesses like Tiffany & Co, the Empire State Building, and Volkswagen.


2. The Al-Sabah family (Kuwaiti's Royal Family)

This family is said to have quadrupled their wealth since the 1990s; since then, their fortune has reached $360 billion. They happen to be the largest stakeholders in most of the major US blue-chip companies, and it is said that they started investing strategically in American companies in the 1980s, which allowed them to multiply their fortune to a great extent nowadays.

1. The House of Saud (Saudi Arabia's Royal Family)

With a net worth of $1.7 trillion, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud is the third richest Royal in the world. His family is by far the wealthiest. And how wouldn't they be if they rule a land with great petroleum and natural resources, own a highly profitable media group, and have a lot of knowledge on business and investments.


Bonus: King Maha Vajiralongkorn (Thailand's Royal House)

The Ruler of Thailand alone is known to be the wealthiest royal so far, owning a net worth of at least $30 billion held by the Crown Property Bureau. Due to major stocks in Thailand's largest industrial conglomerate and Siam Commercial Bank, he's Thailand’s second-largest lender.
