About Francois Bettencourt Meyers

According to Bloomberg, the only daughter of Bettencourt, Francois Bettencourt Meyers, is currently the wealthiest woman in the world. She is now ahead of the Walmart heiress Alice Walton with a net worth of $42.3 billion as of February 2018.

At the age of 64, Francois Bettencourt Meyers does not always grant interviews and avoids the spotlight. According to Bloomberg, she plays the piano for several hours a day. The academic is known for writing a five-volume study of the Bible as well as the genealogy of the Greek gods.

As per the author of The Bettencourt Affair, Tom Sancton, Francois lives in her cocoon. She only goes to her family and avoids splashy purchases. Francois is also a sober person who can be more comfortable with her books and piano instead of the worlds of finance and big business.

Francois’ parents raised her a strict Catholic, but she married the grandson of a rabbi who died in Auschwitz. Eugène Schueller, the founder of L’Oreal, is known as a Nazi sympathizer.

Bettencourt Meyers became famous after bringing legal action to her mother who gave away millions of insurance and assets to the society photographer François-Marie Banier. Bettencourt Meyers accused him of preying on the onsetting dementia of her mother. According to Vanity Fair, her mother responded by calling her daughter a pain in the ass.

The case settled in favor of Bettencourt Meyers. She and her two sons are now the guardians of Liliane’s interests in 2011.
