10 Richest Royals in the World 2016
Have you even wondered who are the richest royals in the world 2016?
Yes, America doesn’t have a king, but there are currently 44 sovereign nations in the world that have monarch acting as heads of the state.
Monarchy if you didn’t know was the most common form of government until the 19th century, but it is no longer prevalent.
Now is a constitutional monarchy, in which the monarch retains a unique legal and ceremonial role, but has limited or no political power whatsoever.
For example, the monarch of Cambodia, Japan and Malaysia, reign but do not rule. The monarch of Brunei, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Swaziland however, can exercise more political influence than any other single source of authority in their nations.
All of them live in castles and are the heirs of big empires. With all the fortune comes a great responsibility- the responsibility to keep and why not grow that fortune.
They can’t make bad decisions regarding the fortune (take Eike Batista’s example); these royals can’t afford to lose it all.
The monarchs from our top, are the richest from all the 44 sovereign nations, let’s see how rich!
