Well maybe Jabba instead of G0-T0 since as I recall G0-T0 was only a member of the Exchange, not their leader.

Or whomever was that Hutt King was in TOR?

IIRC, G0-T0 was the leader of the Exchange as of KOTOR II.

He was one of the leaders I recall? Isn't Compeer the main head honcho that presides over all of them?

Right, G0-T0 answers to the Compeer. I don't think a name is mentioned, tho.

Yeah the Compeer.

Other than that there the Supreme Mogul Karagga, he ruled the Hutt Cartel for two centuries, must have amassed some serious wealth.

Pretty sure he just bought Dathomir for 50 credits or something.

I'm sure he had amassed a wealth in his gambling, I recall that much.

If the short story "At Odd's" is usable to any extent, then the initial order of 3 million Clone troops likely cost ~2-3 billion credits(as Lama Su requested a deposit of 1 billion credits before she would commission the growth of another 3 million soldiers.)

I only mention that because it helps put into perspective how gargantuan "trillionS" of credits really is.

Quite so and if that's how much 3 million Clones cost, then a lot of wealthy figures could have their own clone army with no real issue.

In the Shadows of the Empire novel Xizors, vaders, and palpatines different wealths are mentioned quite a bit.

Xizor thinks to himself at one point how he's worth billions- "Credits are nothing, he had billions. A way of keeping score, that was all. Not important."

A page earlier he thinks to himself that hes worth more than several planets combined.- "He sighed. He was rich beyond the income of many entire planets,"

Also the narration states that Vader is almost as rich as him- "He was nearly as rich as Xizor and, like the dark Prince, cared little for wealth itself."

And that Palpatine is far richer than either- "Then again, the Emperor had a lot more treasures than anybody else in the galaxy, and the loss even of a city-size skyhook would be but a small pail subtracted from his vast sea."

Someone should construct a legit graph that shows the wealthiest beings in the galaxy along the timeline, with the most accurate gauge of their wealth possible if it isn't accurately stated.

E.g Mutdah would cause the graph to fly upwards when it gets to his timeline.

That would require looking really deep, making a graph of the wealthiest in the whole galaxy might be more difficult than realizing. Because I'm pretty sure there's more to it than just looking at someone's wealth solely. Taking into account if they are apart of any organizations, or what have you which would be able to increase their wealth ontop of what they already have.

Valkoriate. He literally owned 2 galaxy-threatening empires.

Credits are inconsequential when you can't acquire resources.

I'd just like an easy way to see what kind of credits people are making. As long as you get a rough gauge for millions, billions and trillions it could work.

Frankly, I think there shouldn't even be counting millions. In a huge galaxy such as the SWU, millions wouldn't be noticeable to the wealthiest individuals in the galaxy.

Millions sure would be great for planetary level, but not for a galactic scale scope. Billions/Trillions would be better to look at.

G0-T0 was the Exchange leader at the time. Pretty impressive for a droid.

Well according to TCSWE, the House of Serenno, the Counts(which Dooku of course was one) were believed to be some of the wealthiest and influential beings in the galaxy for a millennia.

Meanwhile Palpatine's house was wealthy on Naboo, but not as wealthy as some of the other houses.

So...yeah Dooku was more wealthy than Palpatine as of TPM and probably AOTC, by but ROTS with Palpatine becoming Chancellor, he wasn't.

In terms of actual power and influence Palpatine was wealthier than Dooku due to his dense political connections, but Dooku got dat private money.
