Forbes: The Hunts are the 13th wealthiest family in America

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The family of Clark Hunt is probably richer than Scrooge McDuck.

The owner of the Kansas City Chiefs is part of one of the richest families in the country. Forbes does their annual lists of the richest people in the world but they've also done a list of the richest families, which has landed Clark Hunt and his family at No. 13 on the list with an estimated worth of $15 billion.

Legendary wildcatter H.L. Hunt (pictured), inspiration for Dallas' J.R. Ewing, sired 15 children (one died in infancy) by 3 women. Hunts have ranked as one of the richest families in America since the 1960s. These descendants have discrete fortunes: son Ray Lee oversees Hunt Oil; son Herbert big player in shale; and daughter Caroline founded, then sold Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. His late son, sports magnate Lamar Hunt, is said to have named the Super Bowl, and his children still own the Kansas City Chiefs today.

OK, this is just an estimate from Forbes. They also estimate things like NFL coaches contracts, which are not made public and are really just a guess. So don't think this is accurate down to the dollar. But my goodness that's a lot of money. (As Mrs. Arrowhead Pride and I argue over whether $250 is too much to get our furniture cleaned. Dang Sheldog sleeping everywhere.)

No. 1 on the list is the Walton family of Walmart fame at $152 billion, which is $63 billion more than the No. 2 on the list (the Koch family). Meanwhile, there are two Kansas City families on the list.
