Thought this might be of some interest here on ATS. I didn't see it posted anywhere here yet.

It's hard to say what this really counts for though, considering that wealth and power are not necessarily synonymous. This could simply mean that the Thai king doesn't do as good a job of hiding his wealth, as said here in the article (emphasis mine)...


King Bhumibol, 80 and, at 62 years on the throne the world's longest-serving head of state, pushed to the top of the richest royals list by virtue a greater transparency surrounding his fortune, Forbes said.

35 billion is nothing to sneeze at...but Queen Elizabeth with all her assets and crown jewels, hidden wealth etc would probably pull ahead.

And then of course we have to consider the people that no one has ever heard about. The people behind the scenes. The people who determine what wealth actually means.
