Only 6 Trillionaires ever lived

You may have heard millions and billions quite often. Have you thought about trillions? Becoming a trillionaire is no easy job. Having this much money is equivalent to an unbelievable amount of wealth. A trillion is such a huge number followed by twelve zeros. That is one thousand times a billion.

As of today, there are no trillionaires who live on earth. Such extreme wealth we dont see in our lifetime. Believe it or not it is unbelievable wealth. In the past Kings had that much wealth. Most of this wealth came from earth’s resources rich in minerals, the riches in the earth are only declining as years pass by.
