Sent via email from Forbes, I didn’t pay attention to this list until probably last week when I was at the Stock Exchange of Thailand to attend a classical concert for Japan. No royals there; just approximately seven ambassadors in attendance, but enough to see some connection to draw up an ‘affluent’ list.
1. Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, worth $30 billion
2. Brunei’s Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, worth $20 billion

3. Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al Saud, worth $18 billion

4. UAE President Sheik Khalifa bin-Zayed al Nahayan, worth $15 billion

5. Dubai ruler Sheik Mohammed bin Rashedal Maktoum, worth $4.5 billion

6. Liechtenstein’s Prince Hans-Adam II, worth $3.5 billion

7. Morocco’s King Mohammed VI, worth $2.5 billion8. Qatar’s Sheik Hamid bin Kalifa al-Thani, worth $2.4 billion

9. Prince Albert II of Monaco, worth $1 billion10. His Highness the Aga Khan, worth $800 million

11. Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, worth $700 million

12. Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, worth $450 million

13. Kuwait’s Sheik Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Ahamad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, worth $350 million
