8 of the richest dictators in history

What happens when you are an autonomous entity who happens to be in the

middle of prime infrastructure and oil deals? What if there were no

checks and balances or a system that ensures public funds land where

they should? What if you were given unlimited political authority with

no elected bodies to report to? This would make you a dictator. You

could choose to be a benevolent dictator or a selfish one. Most

dictators, past and present, chose the latter.
