Heidi Horten is an Austrian female billionaire, who derived an incredible fortune from her husband, Helmut Horten. Helmut was a highly successful retailer who founded the eponymous German department store chain. Heidi and Helmut met in 1960 in a hotel bar in Velden am Wörthersee. Despite their 32 year age difference, the two got married 6 years later in church. The two remained together until Helmut met his untimely death in 1987.

When she is not involved in the running of her business empire, Heidi divides her precious time between her luxurious home in Lyford Cay in the Bahamas, her residence in Tessin and her lavish penthouse in Vienna. Besides owning the three luxurious residences, she also owns a 315-foot long Carinthia VII, which is considered to be one of the largest yachts in the world. She is also known to be an avid art collector and hunter. Since she didn’t have children with her deceased husband, Heidi doesn’t have immediate heirs.
