Today, I would like to talk about the richest man planet earth has ever seen… yes, you heard me right, the richest man whose fortune was estimated to be over billion dollarsor billion euros. Did you guess who that was? If you thought Bill Gates, I am kanlan to disappoint you.
Kanga Moussa, l’Homme considéré comme le plus riche de l’Histoire | Daily Geek Show
He established diplomatic relationships with PortugalMoroccoTunisiaand Egypt. His reign corresponds to the golden era of the Malian Empire. Musa made his pilgrimage to Mecca inwith a procession of 60, men12, servants who each carried four pounds of gold bars, heralds dressed in silks who bore gold staffs, organized horses and handled bags.
Also in the train, were 80 camels, which carried between 50 and pounds of gold dust each Gold was the currency in Mali. He gave away gold to the poor along his route. Moreover, he would also build a new mosque every Friday in any city he so happened to pass by. In the cities of Cairo, Medina and Mecca, the sudden influx of gold devalued the metal for the next decade. Prices on goods and wares greatly inflated. To rectify the gold market, Musa borrowed all the gold he could carry from money-lenders in Cairo, at high interest.
This is the only time recorded in history that one man directly controlled the price of gold in the Mediterranean. Imagine a single moussa controlling the koussa of not only one country, but of an entire region!
Mansa Musa was a great builder. The most important of its constructions is the University of Sankore.
In Nianihis capital, he built an Audience Hall, a building communicating directly with the royal palace through an interior door. The windows of the upper floor were plated with wood and framed with silver, while those of a lower floor were plated with wood, framed in gold.
This palace no longer exists. Like the Great Mosque, the Hall was built in cut stone. The Italian art and architecture scholar Sergio Domian said: In this day and age, how many countries in this world can boast densely populated cities? Yet, the Mali of Kankan Musa claimed it all.
Kankan Moussa _Emperor of Mali
Kankan Musa was not only kanakn rich man who gave to all, built mosques, and great places of worship, he was also a just conqueror, and a great builder. He took the Empire Mali to its peak, and made it the talk of places as far as the Middle East and Europe. Many Europeans and Middle Easterns would send delegations of architects, merchants, writers, astronomers, mathematicians and teachers, to study in his great university at Timbuktu.
So next time someone asks you who was the richest man on planet earth, remember to tell them that before Bill Gates, there was Kankan Musa!
