Alexandra Andresen, 19 years of age, who was born to a Norwegian family is one lucky girl who inherited a fortune of $1.2 billion from her dad. She has also inherited the title of the world's youngest Billionaire.


Alexandra Andresen made it to the list of the richest people around the world after she inherited a whopping amount of $1.2 billion from her father Johan Andresen.

Her father, Johan Andresen, who has a share in the investment company "Ferd Holdings", which deals with tobacco products, claimed that he had transferred his savings to his two little daughters in 2007.

This company was Norway's leading cigarette producer in 1849 when it was established by her great, great, great grandfather.

Alexandra and her sister "Katharina Andresen", who is 20 years old, made it to the headlines once they were listed in the tax payer's list when they turned adults.

Since the news of this young girl turning into a billionaire has gone viral over the net, she is said to have got over more than 500 friend requests on her social sites since the time her fortune became public.

On the other end, Alexandra Andresen just got out of college and she still drives a second-hand car and loves riding horses. Young Andresen is a professional dressage rider who is currently residing in Germany and is currently focusing on pursuing her career as a competitive horse rider and participating in the Olympics.

Her older sister, Katharina, is said to be studying in a university.

While Forbes released the list of the richest people in the world, the third youngest billionaire is a 22-year-old "Gustav Magnar Witzoe". These young lads are said to have purely inherited their fortune and coincidentally they are both from Norway.
