George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He was also called the "father of his country" during his lifetime. But that’s not all. Apparently, Washington was also the richest president in the US history. His estimated net worth was of $525 million in today’s dollars. According to 24/7 Wall Street his salary was 2% of the total US budget in 1789 and he owned over 50,000 acres of land.
