This list of the world's top 100 richest people includes photos and data about the wealthiest people on the planet. If you've ever wondered "Who is the richest person in the world," you can find that man (and in some cases woman) on this list of truly rich individuals.

The days of richest people lists being top 10 lists are long gone; there are now thousands of billionaires in the world, and even smaller countries have as many as 40 people worth over a billion dollars, so now we have to run through the 100 richest people. See the full list, courtesy of Forbes, and try to contain your envy.
