Forbes magazine annually ranks the world's wealthiest female billionaires. This list uses the static rating published once a year by Forbes, usually in March. There were 244 women listed on the world's billionaires as of 10 April 2019, up from 242 in March 2018.[1] Since Liliane Bettencourt died in 2017, her only child and heiress, Françoise Bettencourt Meyers has been listed as the world's wealthiest female.[2] MacKenzie Bezos is not included because she gained her individual wealth after the 2019 rankings were published.
