Billionaire Descendants Who Are Going To Inherit Their Families' Companies

When you buy something at the store, turn on the television, or eat a meal, you interact with numerous family businesses and contribute to countless family fortunes - perhaps without even realizing it.

Some of the most well-known, wealthiest names in goods and services are established entities that have been around for decades. The historical descendants who inherited those company fortunes may have picked up the reigns of their ancestors' business, or perhaps they just sit back and reap the rewards of their families' success.

Either way, the descendants of billionaires often get to be magnates in their own time. The children of the rich may not be instantly recognizable, but their families pull in some of the biggest paydays around.
