For years we've been feeling sad for Princess Peach from Super Mario. You know, between the whole damsel-in-distress thing, living with all those toads and of course, depending on Mario to save her from Bowser -- all while having to wear that fluffy pink dress -- it didn't look like she had it easy. That was of course until we found out that she's practically a billionaire.
Natalie Grigson from real estate blog Movoto, calculated that Princess Peach's castle, if it existed in real life, would be worth approximately $950,972,940. Grigson figured out the ideal location for the castle, the size and average price per square foot and voilà, now we know why Mario was so obsessed with saving her.
