Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has the net worth between $14 billion and $18 billion with one of the wealthiest families in the Middle East.

The head of the family got married six times and has 23 grandchildren, according to Metro and Emirates Woman.

He owns one of the most expensive and luxurious palaces in the world by the name of Zabeel Palace. He has been residing in this palace for years.

Additionally, other kings, queens, princes and princesses of Dubai’s royal family also reside in Zabeel Palace, according to South China Morning Post.

The royal family are real animal lovers. Their palace has been designed to feature a private zoo, home to exotic animals including tigers, lions, gorillas and monkeys, as seen in a Dubai-based YouTuber’s vlog.

The extravagant residence is located in the heart of Dubai and spans nearly 15 hectares, according to The Richest.

Moreover, the residence comprises 150 rooms, including a grand ballroom and many guest suites. There is also a supposed horse racing track, a fleet of vintage cars and an indoor swimming pool.

Sheikh Al Makhtoum has spent millions on properties in many other areas of the world. He splurged US$95 million for a Longcross estate in Surrey, US$16.5 million for another mansion in the region’s Woodhay, US$22 million for a home in Belgravia, and more, according to The Guardian.
