At 20 years old, Padmanabh Singh controls a fortune of between $697 million and $855 million and is called a "king."
Padmanabh Singh, full title Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur, is the young monarch of Jaipur, a city in northwestern India famous for its pink architecture and imperial palaces.
Singh's royal title is not officially recognized by law, as India is a federal parliamentary democratic republic with a president and a prime minister. But it "still inspires respect in this deeply hierarchical country where the aristocracy is venerated despite rapid social change," according to the Guardian.
The wealth of the royal family is estimated to be between $697 million and $2.8 billion.
Singh spends his time playing polo, studying liberal arts, walking in fashion shows, and traveling the world.
