Eva Maria Braun-Luedicke comes from dynastic, family legacy wealth. The 34-year-old out of Melsungen, Germany, is the current communications manager for the successful medical device company. She currently owns 12% of the business. The company first began in 1839 as a single pharmacy selling herbal remedies.  

She can credit her ownership stake of the family business to her mother and mother’s cousin, Ludwig Georg Braun, who seized control of the company in 1977 when they were bringing in a measly $24 million in annual revenue. That remark comes only in half jest, considering how in 2022 they rake in about $8 billion!

Eva’s mother, Barbara, sits on the advisory board for the company with 64,000 employees while Eva helps lead. Her salary comes out to roughly $1.3 billion a year.

In 2017, Andresen was fined a quarter-million dollars for drunk driving and had her license suspended for 13 months. Her blood-alcohol level was 3x the legal limit. Unfortunately, reckless behavior is often a common thread in kids that were born with the silver spoon and who enjoyed special favor as a result of their wealth.

Alexandra Andresen is the Norweigein heiress and fellow sister of number two on this list, Katharina Andresen. Wealth is a family affair. And remember that 42.2% ownership transfer, given from Johan Andresen Jr.? Well, it was enough to make not just Katharina one of the richest women on the planet, but Alexandra too.

Given this amount of wealth at such an early age by their father, who worried about what that wealth might imply, he made sure to emphasize that if his daughters chose not to inherit the family business and run the company, they should never feel the pressure to do so.

Kylie Jenner is the youngest richest woman on the planet!

It’s only fitting that the number one on this list should also have the name that’s the most recognizable and known practically on a global scale.

She’s cultivated a path on her own thanks to platforms like Instagram, where she amassed a following of over 300 million people. She used her platform to promote her cosmetic line, turning her into a billionaire at 22.
