Downton Abbey faithful knew Lord Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham, married the American Cora Levinson for her family’s money — and now we know just how much he got out of the deal. According to Forbes’ Fictional 15 — an annual list of the richest fictional characters — the Earl is worth an estimated $1.1 billion in today’s dollars.

Robert is a newcomer to Forbes’ club, but he might not be there for long. In season three, the Crawley family encounters a bit of financial hardship and must appeal to Cora’s mother — played by Shirley MacLaine — for help.
Also joining the Earl is Game of Thrones villain Lord Tywin Lannister, who commands a fortune of $2.1 billion, and Lisbeth Salander, whose hacking skills earned her $2.4 billion.
Oh, Ouiser! Recall the movie Steel Magnolias, in which Shirley MacLaine’s shrew of a neighbor waged war against Tom Skerritt’s Drum Eatenton because his party’s firecracker prep was terrifying her anxious dog? Well, let’s just say MacLaine could relate to her character extremely well.
