Congratulations on showing a new member how *not* to be open-minded about other people's opinions.

Can't seem to find a working link to Manager Magazin (on Lucien's classification of it as a rag, I'd like a second opinion..), but the previous year's lists of wealthiest germans (from which the figures are taken imo) is also on wiki
https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List...sten_Deutschen

Interesting! Seems the Hannovers are more wealthy than articles from a while back where telling. Or the selling of things and Ernst-August jr. managing finances very well set them on the road of recovery.

According to the 2016 Sunday Times Rich List, there are 6 hereditary peers who are also billionaires in Britain:

1. The Duke of Westminster - £9350m
2. Earl Cadogan - £5700m
3. Baroness Howard de Walden - £3630m
4. Viscount Portman - £1890m
5. Lord Grantchester - £1200m
6. Viscount Rothermere - £1000m

Are there any in the rest of Europe?

Sunday Times Rich List 2016: The aristocrats that are richer than the Queen - Business Insider

This article states that the Queen is the 15th richest titled member of the nobility (I guess you could argue she is above that but still you get the point, and I actually think their definition of nobility is pretty stretched). They refer to the Sunday Times Rich List which ranks the Queen as having £340million.
Those above her are:
The Duke of Northumberland - £365million
Charlotte Townshend - £425million (apparently the only other person other than the Queen who is allowed to own wild swans
The Duke of Sutherland - £580million
Lord Rothschild - £650million
The Duke of Bedford - £685million
Prince Jonathan and Princess Gesine Doria Pamphilj - £750million
The Earl of Iveagh and Guinness Family - £854million
The Duke of Devonshire - £870million
Viscount Rothermere - £1billion
Robert Miller & Princess Marie-Chantal - £1.58billion
Viscount Portman - £1.89billion
Baroness Howard de Walden - £3.63billion
Earl Cadagon - £5.7billion
The Duke of Westminster - £9.35billion

I assume the Queen's net worth in lists like that include only her privately-owned assets , i.e. those she can sell or will, including real estate, art, and jewelry, but does not include assets placed in public trusts from which the Royal Family actually earns income. It is a very old (and well-known) debate, but the Queen's "private" wealth gives only a small glimpse of her "true" wealth.

And on paper the Bernadottes, Orange-Nassaus and De Belgiques are "poor" because their assests have been placed in legal entities which are the factual owners. We see Máxima wearing diamonds worth millions but these have been transferred from personal ownership into legal ownership. So the King of the Belgians enjoys a sprawling Château de Laeken, owned by the Donation Royale. Carl XVI Gustaf enjoys Italian Masters on his walls owned by the Galliera Foundation. Willem-Alexander is riding in a splendid Golden State Carriage pulled by eight horses, owned by one of the dozen Orange-Nassau Foundations. So who owns what and how is wealth contributed to? A very difficult question. Most magazines just stick a wet finger in the air and write from their sucking thumb.

Most such lists now only include the assets the Queen owns as an individual (Balmoral, Sandringham, the Stamp collection, jewels etc) rather than those she owns as Sovereign and Head of State (BP, Windsor, crown jewels etc).

I guess you could say that the Queen may own a lot of assets herself her job gives her access to even more magnificent assets.
