What do families of the world's richest people look like?

With Meta Platform co-founder Mar Zuckerberg announcing his third child with wife Priscilla Chan, we take a look at the richest people in the world and their many lines of succession.

Zuckerberg took to Instagram to make the announcement on Wednesday, having already fathered his two daughters - Max and August - in 2015 and 2016 respectively. 

Zuckerberg's daughters shall presumably inherit $53 billion in funds and assets from the billionaire. Which got us thinking... What sort of Succession-style sibling rivalries can we expect to witness in the future from some of the world’s richest? 

As per the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, here are a few of the world’s richest people and their wide-ranging family trees:
