    Rich Man

    Meet Mansa Musa I of Mali

    Mansa Musa I ruled West Africa’s Malian Empire in the early 1300s, making his fortune by exploiting his country’s salt and gold production. Many mosques he built as a young man still stand today.

    After Mansa Musa I death in 1331, however, his heirs were unable to hang on to the fortune, and it was substantially depleted by civil wars and invading armies

    Nice article. As far as I can remember, Mansa Musa I of Mali – the obscure 14th century African king who was today named the richest person in all history.
