Forbes has compiled their annual list of the richest rulers. In order they are:

1. King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz, Saudi Arabia, $21 billion
2. Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, Brunei, $20 billion
3. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, United Arab Emirates, $19 billion
4. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai, $14 billion
5. Hans Adam II von und zu Liechtenstein, Liechtenstein, $4 billion
6. Prince Albert II, Monaco, $1 billion
7. Fidel Castro, Cuba, $900 million
8. Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, Equatorial Guinea, $600 million
9. Queen Elizabeth II, Queen/U.K., $500 million
10. Queen Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard, Netherlands, $270 million

So the only two non royals who make the list are Fidel Castro and the President of Equatorial Guinea. Has there even been a poor communist leader?
