Who secretly, and LEGALLY, has amassed the most wealth?

Kennedys and Rockefellers, their wealth also came with the curse of famous-for-being-wealthy. Forbes 400 and Forbes 500 and Forbes 1000 lists make it their business to "suss out" the fortunes of others. But, who has made the most money largely in perfect privacy?
I'm thinking about stuff like the grandma who died and it was discovered that somehow she owned Ty Inc. and had earned several billions of dollars without anyone knowing. Or, those unknown owners of UPS and ETS (fabulously wealthy private companies). Any other examples?
