The king of Jordan was home to one of the world’s largest private collections of luxury homes, mansions and villas valued at millions of dollars.
By the end of 2015, King Abdullah’s collection of buildings had exceeded $2.3 billion, according to a report by the Toronto Star.
Meanwhile, the Canadian government, which is also a high-income country, sent far less to the Middle East, providing about $62 million, although that number is probably much higher now.
King Abdullah was hardly extravagant while ruling Jordan. His opulent properties include a 63-foot yacht called “Inferno” and an aircraft carrier called “Fortitude,” along with a fleet of $67 million luxury cars.
