Richest Man In The World Ever.
Richest man in the world ever is Musa I of Mali. He is also called Mansa Musa.
Thus, Mansa is just a Mandinka word meaning “sultan” (king) or “emperor”
But it is particularly associated with the Keita Dynasty of the Mali Empire. The Dynasty of the Mali Empire dominated West Africa from the thirteenth to the fifteenth century.
Accordingly, the Mansa has the sole obligations to dispense justice and to monopolize trade, especially in the exploration, mining and trading of gold within the empire.
Throughout the empire, the power of the Mansa remains supreme and unchallenged.
Mansa Musa was the tenth Mansa of the wealthy West African Islamic Mali Empire.
Meanwhile, during the period Musa’s rise to the throne, the Malian Empire consisted of territory formerly belonging to the Ghana Empire in present-day southern Mauritania and in Melle (Mali) and the immediate surrounding areas.
Similarly, during the time of his reign, Mali was the largest producer of gold in the world. Mail was dominating in Africa and beyond.
The richest man in the world ever is Musa I of Mali also know as Mansa Musa, with the net worth estimate of 400 Billion USD.
Although there is no way to put an accurate number on his wealth.
But his wealth was such enormous that he is reputed the richest man in the world ever.
Furthermore, Mansa Musa was a devout Muslim. He made a pilgrimage to Mecca. This pilgrimage made him well known across northern Africa and the Middle East. He made this pilgrimage between 1324 and 1325.
Musa embarked on a large building program, raising mosques and madrasas in Timbuktu and Gao. One of examples is the ancient center of learning Sankore Madrasah (or University of Sankore).
