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: 


The founder, CEO, and Chief Engineer at SpaceX; CEO of Tesla; founder of The Boring Company and co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI; Musk’s estimated net worth is around $262 billion as of September 2022, making him the wealthiest person in the world.

The American entrepreneur, media proprietor, investor, computer engineer, and now, commercial astronaut is the founder, executive chairman and former president and CEO of Amazon; as well as the aerospace manufacturer Blue Origin. He also owns the major American newspaper The Washington Post and co-founded the biotechnology company Altos Labs. Bezos has a net worth of around $136 billion as of September 2022.
