Only child of Eugene Schueller, the founder of L'Oreal. Her mother died when she was five, she was close to her father and started working in the family company at a young age. In 1950, she married French politician André Bettencourt, who served as a cabinet minister in French governments of the 1960s and 1970s and rose to become deputy chairman of L’Oréal. Bettencourt had been a member of La Cagoule, a violent French fascist group that Liliane's father had funded and supported in the 1930s and that collaborated with the Nazis during World War II. After the war, her husband, like other members of La Cagoule, was given refuge at L'Oréal despite his politically inconvenient past. They had one daughter, Françoise, who was born on 10 July 1953.

Forbes ranks Bettencourt at 15th in its list of the world’s wealthiest persons with an estimated fortune of US$23.5 billion. She is the richest woman in Europe, the second richest woman in the world and the second richest person in France.

There have been numerous scandals around her on recent years. For details, please follow the Wikipedia link.
