He was a Senator. Finis Valorum was Chancellor in TPM, until he got booted out and Palps became Chancellor we see at the end.

A bit I did dun goofed, so yeah even by AoTC, Palps should be richer than Dooku. Only reason I'm not counting TPM is because he was more a Senator than Chancellor.

But does the chancellor have personal access to funds being a public figure? Emperor absolute power palps doesn't equal chancellor/senator

I don't see why he wouldn't have access.

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."

So to your knowledge: aside from Palpatine, whose cumulative wealth as Emperor likely exceeded any other in galactic history, no character has ever been stated to have amassed personal wealth that was in the trillions?

Far as what I know, nope. Doesn't mean that they couldn't have. Although Xizor's personal wealth was in the billions since he was president of his own company which was worth billions(XTS), including the Black Sun he more than likely does have money in the trillions given the scope of the organization which was everywhere, including the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire. Or at the bare least, he has the means of getting to the trillions, if you don't want to go assuming but it's more than likely.

Hence why as I said, you can't really look at personal wealth if they are also apart of something else. You can, but that's not all of it.

From what I can tell, Mutdah has the most *independent* wealth in the franchise, by an astronomical margin. Conversely, Palpatine has the most *cumulative* wealth by virtue of being the galactic Emperor.

Same basic concept goes for Xizor possessing vast wealth by virtue of commanding Black Sun, The Hutts by virtue of controlling major trade routes and such, etc. etc.

yeah to my knowledge, as far as independently wealthy, no one but Mutduh has been stated to have trillions.

As far as cumilitive wealth, id be willing to bet whoever is the reigning Queen Mother of the Hapan royal dynasty at any given time, would probably be second only to Palpatine. Id have to flip thru Courtship of Princess leia (which ill probably do tonight) to refresh my memory on figures and assets, but from what i remember their wealth was quite vast.

I don't think there was ever an actual figure stated on the wealth of the Hapan. But the family Leia was marrying into, was one of the wealthiest in the galaxy.

Their star system was known for its wealth, 63 of the planets being the wealthiest in the galaxy, though no known figure is given.

I know Valorum was Chancellor. He got removed mid-TPM.

Palpatine becomes Chancellor very shortly after Maul's bisection, IIRC.

Literally the scene immediately after Obi-Wan dices Maul and says his farewells to Qui-Gon.

The leaders of crime organizations like Black Sun and the Pykes must be full of it too.
