About Alexandra Andresen

Alexandra Andresen was born on 23 July 1996, Oslo, Norway. She is the daughter of Norwegian industrialist Johan H. Andresen, Jr., owner of Ferd AS, who in 2007, transferred ownership stakes of 42.2% each to Alexandra and her sister Katharina (even though their father insists that he won’t force his daughters to take part in the family company if they don’t want to).

She is the great-granddaughter of Johan H. Andresen, great-great granddaughter of Johan Henrik Andresen and Anton Klaveness, and great-great-great granddaughter of Nicolai Andresen.

Johan Henrik was the brother of Nicolay August Andresen, and the uncle of Nils August Andresen Butenschøn.

But despite her affluent upbringing in one of the most famous families in Norway, she isn’t just any rich kid. Alexandra is already an accomplished horse rider, winning several massive competitions in dressage.

Her parents also taught her to be humble and save. So even though she is worth over a billion dollars, she actually saved her pocket money during her younger years and only drove second-hand cars.
