Whatever she does, “The House of Hancock comes first.” This little known Australian daughter of a bush pilot and prospector is now the world’s richest woman with a worth of some £18 billion. Known as the “Iron Lady,” twice-married Rinehart’s fortune is expanding at a rate of £21,000 a second and if this continues this larger than life lady will be the richest person on the planet. When Prince Philip met her he asked if she’d been invited simply because she had “the largest hat in Western Australia.” Her father called her his “right-hand man” and “young fella” and she’s even taken on three of her own children in court. The Hancock Mountain Range is named after her and commemorates her family’s contribution to mining in the Pilbara region.

Do you remember Ryan Welker, Matthew? He looked a bit like Brad Pitt and was from Texas. Ryan married the daughter of this lady! What a small world, hey!!!
Wow! What a tale. She sounds like she’s truly down to earth but a bit of a battleaxe. Good for her.
Great… Thanks for the sharing info, keep it up 🙂
first time I’ve heard of her
She should spend some….
Good for her!
she should give it away to charity is what she should do, not all of it mind you….just most
yeah…i know her…saw a report on tv…clever lady
you wouldn’t wanna muck with her….
You should sse what ‘love’ has done for her Matthew. In this latest article you can see she’s lost pounds(weight) and looks quite presentable!
How sad that despite all this wealth she is in litigation with her children
