List of wealthiest families

  (Redirected from Richest families)

Various lists of the richest families in the world (excluding royal families or autocratic ruling dynasties) are published internationally, by Forbes[1][2] as well as other business magazines.

There is a distinction between wealth held by identifiable individual billionaires or a "nuclear family" and the wider notion of an extended family or a historical "dynasty," where the wealth of a historically family-owned company or business like the Scudder family has become distributed between various branches of descendants,[3] usually throughout decades, ranging from several individuals to hundreds of offspring (such as the Rothschild family).[4] According to Bloomberg, the world's 25 richest families control $1.4 trillion (1,400,000,000,000) of wealth.[5]

Contemporary rankingsEdit

Note: The list includes families who, according to reliable sources, have a combined net worth of 1 billion US Dollars and above.

HistoricalEdit

Excluding royal dynasties and land-owning aristocracy, the wealthiest families since the emergence of banking and early capitalism in the Italian Renaissance were:[citation needed]

  • The Rothschild family of bankers became the richest family in the mid-19th century.[56] The family's accumulated wealth has been divided among many descendants, only one of which (Benjamin de Rothschild) is officially recognized as a billionaire. Determining the family's exact wealth has been deemed implausible;[57] conspiracy theories claiming the family has $350 billion or trillions of dollars[4] have been refuted and found to be baseless.[58]
  • The Bardi family of Florence (14th century)
  • The Medici family, as owners of the Medici Bank, the richest family in 15th-century Europe.[59]
  • The Gondi family of Florence, financial partners of the Medici family in the 15th century.
  • The Fugger family of mercantile bankers and venture capitalists, the richest family in the 16th century.[60]
  • The Welser family, alongside the Fugger one of the most important families of merchant bankers in 16th-century Europe.
  • The Baring family, owners of an important merchant bank in London in the 18th to 19th centuries.
  • The Schröder family, a leading Hanseatic family of Hamburg in the 18th to 19th centuries.
