The values ​​have been adjusted with inflation in 2017 dollars. This is only the unofficial list of the greatest fortunes of all time.

These figures are very relative, for most of these personalities, it is almost impossible to quantify exactly their wealth. There are also many fantasies, especially around the Rothschild family that have fueled conspiracy theories for decades. Moreover, it is necessary to put the amount in question in comparison with the world GDP of the time. For example, Augustus’s fortune was equivalent to 3.5 times the world’s GDP at the time, as the world had fewer exploited resources comparing to nowadays (the same order of magnitude for Akbar I).

For the “heads of state” Nebuchadnezzar II, Akbar I, Louis XIV, Napoleon I, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, it is about the GDP of the territory at the time on which they had any power or their share of the GDP on the duration of their reign. For Genghis Khan, his wealth during his invasions was redistributed to his soldiers. The fortunes of the following characters remain to be determined:

– Ramses II, Tutankhamun, Cheops, Chephren, Mykerinos, Nefertiti, Pepi I, Pepi II, Apophis I, Tuthmosis III, Hatshepsut, Amenhotep III, Seti I, Darius I, Ptolemy II.
– Alexander the Great, Leonidas I, Hannibal Barca, Pericles, Croesus, Pompey, Tiberius, Claude, Nero, Titus, Cicero.
– Mehmet II, Soliman the Magnificent, Hammurabi.
– Constantine I, Charlemagne, Henry IV, Henry VIII, Richard I, Charles Martel, Philip II of Macedonia, Charles V.
– Sumerians, Assyrians, Mayans, Incas. Muʿawiya I, Attila, Sun Tzu, Qin Shihuang, Borom Trai Lokanat, Rama Thibodi II, Suryavarman II, Hâroun ar-Rachîd.
– Salvatore Riina, Du Yuesheng, Kazuo Taoka, Luciano Leggio.
