Who Is The Richest Woman
In The World

So who is the richest woman in the world? No, the answer is not Oprah. She is a not so well known lady but if you live in America, your life would have been touched by her late husband's company in many ways.

Her name is Christy Walton and she is the wife of the late John T. Walton. If the name Walton sounds familiar you've probably guessed it. John Walton was the son of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton. After old Sam died, he left his fortune to his sons and daughter. Although the inheritance is divided into four portions, the beneficiaries are still among the top 10 wealthiest people in America and in the world.

Well, Christy is one fortunate lady. As of March 2014, Forbes listed her as the wealthiest woman in America and the richest woman in the world. Christy Walton has a net worth of $36.7 Billion. One just can't imagine how she could ever spend all that money.
