There may be four fewer Spanish women on this year’s Forbes’ rich list, but the main players remain, led by Inditex heiress Sandra Ortega Mera.

As Spain’s richest woman, the 47-year-old daughter of Amancio Ortega – who was momentarily the world’s richest man in October – also inherited her mother’s 7% share in Inditex in 2013.

She is worth a cool €7.5 billion.

Ortega is followed by Coca-Cola Iberian Partners boss Sol Daurella, worth €3.9 billion, and Santander group president Ana Patricia Botin, who has €3.45 billion.

The ‘top ten’ also includes Prosegur president Helena Revoredo Delvecchio (€1.5 billion), Omega Capital owner Alicia Koplowitz (€1.5 billion), Corte Ingles shareholder Carlota Areces Galan (€1.2 billion) and art Baroness Carmen Thyssen Bornemisza (€900 million).
