As soon as we learn the value of money we dream of being billionaires. For most people that dream never comes true and the few that do become billionaires achieve their wealth late in their life. But there are some billionaires out there who amassed a considerable fortune at a very young age. Here we will explore some of the youngest billionaires ever. For the sake of practicality we are going to leave out the trillionaire emperors, sultans, and kings of the old world and stick to the modern billionaires.

Mark Zuckerberg
Facebook- the world’s largest social networking site. You probably have one of your own that you use to stalk your high school friends or that person you saw on tinder that didn’t match with you. With over 2 billion active users on Facebook in 2016 it’s likely that you have one yourself. Your life might even revolve around checking your notifications or posting needless pictures of the pretentious food you are eating.
Dustin Moskovitz
Much like Buzz Aldrin, Dustin Moskovitz is the name that is often forgotten when mentioning their respective groundbreaking achievements. Moskovitz cofounded Facebook with Zuckerberg in 2004. Zuckerberg famously created Facebook “for fun” with a little bit of help from his friends. Once Moskovitz saw the full potential of Facebook he suggested that Zuckerberg take time off of school to pursue the project full time.

Tom Persson
Now its time to look at one of Europe’s youngest billionaires. The heir to the H&M fortune. You have probably heard of the brand and you might even own a piece of their clothing. H&M was founded by Erling Persson in 1947 and has since become the second largest clothing retailer in the world. Old Erling died in 2002 and left his clothing empire to his son Stefan Persson but that isn’t who we are here to talk about.

Evan Spiegel
Here is a self made billionaire sure to make anyone born before 1990 feel like they have been wasting their lives. You old geriatrics might have seen some of these young kids taking pictures of themselves and all of sudden their face turns into a dog or a halo of flowers appears around their head. This isn’t witchcraft it’s Snapchat. Snapchat is an image messaging application created by Stanford students Evan Spiegel, Reggie Brown and Bobby Murphy. The trio began working on the application while studying computer science at Stanford. Snapchat built onto a previous application created by Murphy called Picaboo. It too offered a feature where you could send disappearing pictures to users within your network.

Elizabeth Holmes
Not often do you hear about female billionaires so let’s start by introducing you to the youngest self-made female billionaire ever. Elizabeth Holmes was a bright young student with a passion for foreign language and a desire to help mankind. After practicing Mandarin for 3 years and starting her first teach business in high school she decided to attend Stanford University to study Chemical Engineering. After her freshman year she began working in a SARS laboratory at the Genome Institute of Singapore.

Hugh Grosvenor
This baby faced billionaire will make you wish you were British royalty. In August of 2016 baby Hugh became the 7th Duke of Westminster upon the death of his father Gerald Grosvenor. The family’s deeply rooted ties into the British government have allowed for them to amass an enormous fortune over the past 2 centuries.

Alexandra Andresen
Here we have the youngest female billionaire in the world, Alexandra Andresen. On top of that she is also the youngest billionaire in the world. Alexandra and her sister Katharina are the heiresses to the Ferd company fortune. Ferd (Journey in English) is the largest privately owned company in Norway.

With less than 2000 billionaires in the world it is unlikely that you will ever become one.But who knows, maybe you have the next Snapchat or Facebook in your back pocket but you just haven’t executed your plan yet. From tech geniuses to lucky bloodlines these have been some of the youngest billionaires around the world. I know earlier we said we weren’t going to mention the richest people of the old world but it’s just nice to know how these modern billionaires pale in comparison. The Mughal Emperor Akbar I took the throne at the age of 14 and his estimated net worth was 21 trillion dollars. If Akbar I himself was a country today he would have the highest GDP in the world. Let us know some of your favorite young billionaires in the comments below. But we think it might be hard to top that one.

    Suckerberger is a nephew of Rothschilds and does not deserve credit for starting FB. And he did not do it all on his own. He has a Minister from Israel who screens comments on the website as directed by Netanyahu, families best friends and Nettie has slept in is bedroom . Likely much of that money came from the $3-5 Billion in foreign aid given Israel by America. Better not criticize or tell the truth about Israel and their treatment of the Palestinians, and Gaza, or they will demand to audit your computer. He has many dual citizen friends in our Senate and Congress that he persuades to vote for Israels interests in taking over America.
    Plan on losing your rights to free speech when that is final.

    I grew up dirt poor raised in and out of foster care,& I'm not ashamed to say it. my mother and father had 6 kids in Indianapolis and they were both dirt poor all their lives to,so they did the best they could do. I had 3 kids of my own to raise, and their mother flew the coop,so with God's help I raised them by the sweat of my brow,and with simple maens. in fact I've never made more than 20,000 a year most of the time it was around 12,000"but it was always honest always,and I'm not ashamed of that neither.. it's honest money which enables a man to sleep at night,because hard labor never hurt nobody,and it makes you appreciate everything you got a whole lot more. I've never even owned a home of my own, now I live in a low-income apartment at 53 years old my children are grown and because of an over-the-road wreck I had driving tractor trailer I am totally disabled for the rest of my life although I had lung disease before I wrecked the truck,so getting my kids grown was a struggle,and although I was never a rich man a billionaire ruined every dream I ever had,because of Bill Gates and his friends seeking friends AOL my wife left me with three kids to raise on my own,so she could Go shack up with some weirdo she met online.. me and my children lost our home and everything we had worked so hard for over the years but God seen me through it.. that was years ago and like I said with the help of God I made it through it, but we never really got everything back 20 year marriage down the drain all ruined because I bought my wife a stupid computer it really devastated me for a long time we married when we were kids it took its toll on her to of course her life and greener pastures fell apar,and she eventually lost her mind got on drugs really bad,and even tried to kill herself a few times… I raised our kids and gave them what I could but it was pretty basic three Hots and a cot my sisters would keep an eye on them while I was over the road 14 years at US Express HH Hudson son Lester Coggins all the big companies life is been hard,but I never regretted not being a billionaire. unfortunately two years ago I lost my youngest daughter to obesity and that is my hardest heartache I don't think I'll ever get over it money tears people down all a man needs is a home family friends and just enough to basically pay the light bill and be happy.a lot of wealthy people only destroy the dreams less fortunate people,and most of them don't even realize they're doing it… not all of them because some wealthy people are content with a simple life themselves, but a lot of them don't realize how their inventions,and their power can tear down the lives of just ordinary people.. I guess that's where that saying comes from with great power comes even greater responsibility..I wonder what Bill Gates was thinking when he thought up friends seeking friends friends… He couldn't have known that friends seeking friends would destroyed my life,or anyone else's for that matter.. just thought I'd put that out there…. love your children while you got them they grow up fast, and God almighty's plans take president over all of ours, and although we plan on going to heaven first,it don't always work out that way.. pay attention to that special person in your life try to feel their pain,and understand where they're coming from. don't always assume that the ones you love will always be there, because everybody can get complacent they can feel trapped overburdened,and we can all feel despair. don't always assume that the special someone in your life will share it with you,make the effort to find out what's going on in their heart everybody can think the grass is greener and once they jump the fence the trust is broken the bond is broken the hearts are broken,and are almost never mended.
