In 1997 Forbes magazine estimated Berezovsky's wealth at US$3 billion.[2] He was called "the most prominent and colourful of the so-called oligarchs"[3]

In 2010, Berezovsky was awarded libel damages of £150,000 over allegations that he was behind the murder of his close friend Alexander Litvinenko.[5]

Death

Berezovsky was found dead at his home, Titness Park, at Sunninghill, near Ascot in Berkshire, UK on 23 March 2013.[6] His body was found by a bodyguard in a locked bathroom, with a ligature around his neck.[7][8] According to British police, a post-mortem exam found that his death was consistent with hanging and that there were no signs of a violent struggle.[9] On 26 March 2014 the BBC announced that the coroner had recorded an open verdict.
