Some of his lavish lifestyles include reportedly racing Ferraris at midnight through Brunei’s capital, building a 1,788 room palace, and spending as much as $20,000 (N7,750,000) to get a haircut.

It should be noted that he succeeded his father, Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien, who had 10 children from several wives.

Bolkiah’s father abdicated the throne in 1967 and made him the king while he was at UK’s Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst.

A year after, Bolkiah ascended the throne when he got done with the academy.

The man was also known as a playboy as he had so many extra-marital affairs.

The big palace covers a wide area of 2.2 million square feet. Its designer was the popular Architect Leandro Locsin.

It made World Guinness Records as the largest residential palace.

Another thing worthy of note was that the Sultan’s family reportedly bought half of the world’s Rolls-Royce as Bokiah held a record for having the largest collection.
