[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] [[HeirClubForMen the heir]] [[RoyaltyAndNobilityTropes of royalty]]. Although it's worth noting that inheriting a noble title ([[ImpoverishedPatrician usually]]) means inheriting a chunk of land that goes with it, and the monthly rent cheques from the people farming it for you. ([[LandPoor Which may or may not be all that large...]])

* Taken advantage of by Lorraine Williams, the former CEO of [[Creator/{{TSR}} TSR, inc.]], the company that published TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons. As one of the company's side projects, she devoted massive time and resources towards creating and promoting a Buck Rogers [=RPG=], including sourcebooks and computer games, despite the fact that the market for such a game was just on the plus side of nil. Naturally, the owners of the Buck Rogers trademarks would receive royalties for each such supplement sold. However, it just so happened that Williams herself was the heiress to those properties, which is just about as conflict-y as conflicts of interests get.

* In ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', Niles' first wife Maris is unbelievably wealthy and an impossible snob. When the couple divorces, she cuts him off without a cent -- until cutthroat lawyer Donny Douglas finds out that her family's fortune comes not from timber, as she tells everyone, but from ''urinal cakes!'' On pain of letting that get out to all her snooty friends, she agrees to a reasonable settlement.
