[Bloomberg]Every second that passes, King Hassanal Bolkiah earns $100 from oil income and investments. This is equivalent to about $2 billion per year
The FIFA World Cup 2022 taking place in Qatar has made the whole world pay attention to this Middle Eastern country. Accordingly, the head of the country is King Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who owns a personal fortune of 2 billion USD. At the age of 41, this king is currently the youngest monarch in the world.

Although famous for being rich with a lavish lifestyle and the most tolerant of spending, the King of Qatar still has to "give up" to another king also in Asia. That king is King Hassanal Bolkiah, who has ruled Brunei for more than half a century.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, at the age of 76, King Hassanal Bolkiah is one of the richest royals in the world with an estimated net worth of $30 billion. Most of the Brunei royal family's estate is mainly concentrated on this king.

King Bolkiah was born on July 15, 1946, the son of the late King Omar Ali Saifuddien III. From the mid-1980s to the 1990s, this king was the richest person in the world with an estimated fortune of $40 billion before being usurped by Bill Gates in the late 1990s.

Bloomberg estimates that now, every second that passes, King Hassanal Bolkiah earns $100 from oil income and investments. This is equivalent to about 2 billion USD per year. Possessing a huge fortune, King Bolkiah is also known as a "legend" about his royal lifestyle.

The luxurious life of the emperor:

Istana Nurul Iman Palace is the lavish palace of the Sultan of Brunei, recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest residential palace in the world.

Istana Nurul Man was completed in January 1984 with a value of up to 350 million USD, covers an area of 200,000 square meters with more than 1,700 rooms, 257 bathrooms, 5 swimming pools, 22 karat gold plated domes and 110 garages cars with a capacity of more than 800 supercars of the King's own. And yet, the stable area in the palace is also equipped with air conditioners for 200 rare horses.

And yet, King Bolkiah's real estate collection also includes a $37.5 million mansion located on a large Las Vegas land, a lavish mansion in Beverley Hills, California and St. John's Lodge in London is estimated to be worth £110 million.

Not only living in a magnificent gilded palace, the Sultan of Brunei owns a private jet Boeing 747-400, Boeing 767-200 and Airbus A340-200. According to bornrich.com, King Bolkiah's private jet Boeing 747-400 is as complete and comfortable as a palace with details in the living room and bedroom inlaid with gold. The Boeing 767 that the King owns is a wide-body, mid-size twin-engine jet with a luxurious and classy interior.

Meanwhile, this king's Airbus A340-212 is considered a "flying palace" with elegant and luxurious royal style with a capacity of up to 261 passengers. King Bolkiah spent $100 million to buy and spent another $120 million to redesign the cabin with many valuable details.

In addition to a massive aircraft collection, the Sultan of Brunei also owns the world's largest collection of rare cars, including a gold-plated Rolls-Royce.

According to Indiatimes, the 29th Sultan of Brunei has about 7,000 luxury cars with an estimated total value of more than $5 billion, including 500 Rolls Royces and 300 Ferraris. At its peak, King Bolkiah even held a Ferrari race at midnight through the capital of Brunei.

In addition, King Bolkiah also has a hobby of taking care of his appearance. According to the Times, this king did not hesitate to spend $20,000 on a haircut. He often invites his favorite barber to fly in a first-class superplane from London to Brunei just to cut his hair 3-4 weeks a week.

In early 2022, the Brunei Royal Family attracted the world's attention when organizing a grand wedding party for Princess Fadzillah Lubabul, the 9th child of King Bolkiah.

The wedding began on January 16 with a ceremony where the king bestowed his blessing on the couple and lasted for 10 days and nights with the participation of 2,000 guests inside the palace with a golden dome.
