    The World's Top Richest Royals

    Bhumibol Adulyadej (Royal Institute: Phumiphon Adunyadet; Thai: ภูมิพลอดุลยเดช, pronounced [pʰūːmípʰōn àdūnjādèːt]( listen); see full title below; born 5 December 1927) is the current King of Thailand. Publicly acclaimed "the Great" (Thai: มหาราช, Maharaja), he is also known as Rama IX. Having reigned since 9 June 1946, he is the world's longest-serving current head of state and the longest-reigning monarch in Thai history.[1] He is seen as so important by the Thai people that his ill-health has affected the financial markets.[2]

    Although Bhumibol is legally a constitutional monarch, he has made several decisive interventions in Thai politics. He was credited with facilitating Thailand's transition to democracy in the 1990s, although he has supported numerous military regimes, including Sarit Dhanarajata's during the 1960s and the Council for National Security in 2006-2008. During his long reign he has seen over 15 coups, 16 constitutions, and 27 changes of prime ministers.[3] He has also used his influence to stop military coups, including attempts in 1981 and 1985.

    Bhumibol is revered by many Thais and is legally considered "inviolable".[4] He has no right to charge anyone who insults or defames him, but anyone can file charges for him; the penalty is three to fifteen years in jail. While Bhumibol has said in his 2005 birthday speech that he would not take lèse majesté seriously, and that the king can have flaws, the lèse majesté laws remain in place and have led to numerous jail sentences and censorship measures in recent years.

    Forbes estimated Bhumibol's personal fortune, including property managed by the Crown Property Bureau, to be US$30 billion in 2010, and he has been consistently placed at number one of the magazine's list of "The World's Richest Royals".[5][6] Numerous Royal development projects in Thailand, with targets in the following areas; Agriculture, Environment, Public Health, Occupational Promotion, Water Resources, Communications and Public Welfare, are funded by his fortune.
