Who’s The Richest Man In History? (Hint: It’s Not Jeff Bezos)

By Zack Stieber

Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates may be among the richest people in the world, but they’ve got a way to go before being crowned as the wealthiest in all of history.

A number of people alive today have accumulated stunning amounts of wealth, such as Bezos, who owns part of Amazon, and Gates, who owns Microsoft.

According to Forbes, the net worth of Bezos jumped to $126.2 billion in April.

Bezos owns 16 percent of Amazon, which he founded, and that stake accounts for 95 percent of his estimated fortune. Bezos is CEO of the company.

While he’s the richest person alive right now, Bezos is not the richest person in history. Check out the video for who that is.
