Queens and kings are rulers of the world. Some are tyrants and others are leaders that walk among us. Nevertheless, this list consists not of judgment of character but of riches, influence and power! Many folks dream or perhaps maybe even lust for millions and popularity, but only the chosen can reign. Many queens and kings far surpass the millionaire status quo, and scheme higher for billions and fame forevermore.
Author of Spiritual Economics Eric Butterworth wrote, “The secret of achieving prosperity lies in so vividly keeping yourself centered in the inner focus of affluence that you literally exude the consciousness of it.” You may know of kings and queens such as King Arthur and Queen Victoria, though in this list you might acquire the knowledge of underground royals and you too might aspire for queen or kingship.
Kings and queens believe they deserve their riches. Queen Elizabeth I presided over a rich and powerful throne of England. In a speech before a victorious battle won over the Spanish Armada the queen had this to say, “My loving people... Being resolved, in the midst and heat of the battle, to live and die among you all; To lay down for my God, and for my kingdom, and my people, my honor and my blood, even in the dust. I know I have the body of a weak, feeble woman; but I have the heart and stomach of a king!” From the present day's lovely Queen Rania of Jordan to King Hannibal I of classical times, see the wealth behind the world's past and present most elite rulers. Here are the 15 richest kings and queens.

Many of Henry VIII's fake silver coins actually contained more cheap metal like copper than the original silver.

King of the Zulus, Shaka Zulu was born in 1787, the son of Zulu Chief Senzangakhona and his royal wife Nandi. When Shaka was in his late twenties, his father died and left the throne to his older son. King Shaka rose to power around 1818 after murdering his brother, the king.
