Business Insider Logo By Marissa Perino of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 15: 
  
    More than a dozen of the 35 richest people, according to
    Forbes
    real-time data, have children under the age of 40.
  
  
    Many of these children are poised to inherit billions
    from their superrich parents, while others will receive smaller
    cuts because of
    their parents signing the Giving Pledge.
  
    From Facebook
    founder Mark Zuckerberg's toddlers to Bernard Arnault's
    LVMH
    executive sons, here's a closer look at some of the wealthiest
    heirs and heiresses.

  From preschool toddlers to high-ranking executives, the
  heirs of some of the wealthiest are poised to inherit massive
  fortunes.

  Many of the young heirs of famous billionaires, including
  the 
  children of the richest people in tech and

  16 heirs to some of America's best-known brands who are poised to
  inherit millions
  

  We looked at the 35 richest people and families using real-time
  data from Forbes' billionaire index. We listed those who have
  children under the age of 40 and ordered the list of heirs
  by their parent's wealth, beginning with Jeff Bezos - the
  
  richest person alive.

  For the purposes of this list, we looked only at the
  billionaires' direct descendants and excluded grandkids. Notably,
  this methodology means that some high-profile billionaires'
  grandchildren - including 
  François Pinault's grandson of the same name, Françoise
  Bettencourt Meyers' grandson who was called 
  "The Prince of L'Oréal," and the 
  Walton grandchildren - are not in the round-up.
