1. Christy Walton

Worth $41.7 billion, we have the richest woman in the world in Christy Walton. A good portion of her wealth stems from her inheriting it from her husband, John Walton. John Walton accumulated his wealth by co-founding Wal-Mart. When he passed away in a plane crash in June 2005, Christy was in line of inheriting $18.2 billion US. When she gained that inheritance, she took to growing that money to where it’s at today.

 

2. liliane Bettencourt

A close second to Christy Walton is Liliane Bettencourt, the heiress to the cosmetic company French L’Oreal’s fortune. On a global scale she’s second, but in Europe, she’s the richest woman in Europe with her wealth estimated to be at $40.1 billion US. For a long time, Liliane has been assisting the company to some degree. When L’Oreal was founded in 1907, she helped with running the company. That all changed in 2011 when her daughter forced her out of the company due to Liliane suffering from dementia and being unfit to manage.
