With his $250 million net worth, Mitt Romney would have been the richest Republican ever to hold the land’s top office if he had won the 2012 presidential election. However, as that was not the case, we’ve decided to compile a list of the richest Republican presidents to see whose net worth, adjusted for today’s dollars, makes him our richest Republican head of state.

13. Warren Harding
Net Worth: $1 million
Term of Office: 1921 – 1923
Harding’s wealth was from his marriage to the daughter of a prominent banker. Most of his net worth came from his ownership of the Marion Daily Star newspaper in Marion, Ohio.
