Kevin Eide, the judge in Carver County, Minnesota, where Prince died suddenly in April 2016 at his Paisley Park estate, said that the "Purple Rain" star s heirs were his sister Tyka Nelson and five half-siblings.
In his ruling, Eide said if the Court of Appeals or state Supreme Court decides there are other heirs, the district court would review the cases.
Eide previously signaled that the six siblings would likely be named Prince's heirs, but he also had said he wouldn't make the declaration until appeals had been decided.
The riches include roughly $25 million in real estate that Prince acquired before his death, in addition to stockpiles of cash and 67 gold bars.
Prince died on April 21 past year of an accidental drug overdose. Those alleged heirs included a Colorado inmate who claimed to be Prince's son, which a DNA test ruled out.

However, as the Guardian reports, more than 45 people have filed claims to his estate, claiming to be his wife, children or other relatives.
Complicating matters, only three of the heirs have been working with L. Londell McMillan, Prince s longtime lawyer who has advised the estate on deals.
According to the Friday court filing, McMillan is serving as a business adviser to John R. Nelson, Norrine Nelson and Sharon Nelson.
It's been over a year since Prince's untimely death, and many have wondered what will happen to his $200 million dollar estate.
