Who is the Richest Person in History?

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has officially been named as the richest person of all time. For a while, Bezos and Bill Gates have been battling for the number one spot for a couple of years, but now because of Black Friday spending, it has brought the Bezos’ net worth over $100 billion.

According to Bloomberg’s Billionaire Tracker, Bezos’ total net worth is $106 billion dollars and Gates comes in second place with a whopping 93.3 billion. Studies show that Gates would be the richest man in history if he had not given so much of his money away to charity. Bloomberg says, if you add in the publicly donated 700 million shares of Microsoft (which are worth $61.8 billion today) and $2.9 billion in cash donations, the total would bring Gates’ net worth to over $150 billion.
