L’Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt, the world’s richest woman, has died at the age of 94. Her daughter Francoise Bettencourt Meyers said in a statement that her mother ‘left peacefully’ at her home in Paris.
And six years after winning a bitter court battle against her mother, who she wanted to have declared senile, she is set to inherit Bettencourt’s £29billion fortune.
Bettencourt, the cosmetics giant’s principal shareholder, was the 14th richest person in the world, according to Forbes magazine, which estimated her net worth in March at $39.5bn (£29.1bn).
