Executive summary: World's 16th richest person, 2005
Heir to the L'Oréal cosmetics fortune, Liliane Bettencourt is the richest person in France. Her husband resigned from the CEO post after his pro-Nazi views became public knowledge. In later years, scandal around the estate grew, initially because of the revelations regarding collaboration during the war. In her later years Mrs. Bettencourt grew more confused. Her platonic friend, François-Marie Banier, a photographer friendly with a number of wealthy widows, was convicted of exploitation and money laundering. Banier's total haul may have been over $1B, though much of that was returned to the estate.
