Forbe's Ranking of the Greatest Fortunes in History »

Share this link on Facebook
(6 votes)

The list of the greatest fortunes in History is based on Forbe's calculations. Most of the people in this ranking lived during the Industrial Revolution, although there are a few from the Information Age and some belong to Ancient History. Their fortune, however, is hard to estimate and the old historical figures are few and far between in the lists. The classification is calculated with the percentage of the total GDP of the nation they lived in during their lifetime. Regardless of whether their fortune was inherited or not, the list includes the people who have possessed the largest net fortune. You can check this out by personalizing this ranking.
