Masa Mausa is the Richest man of all times. Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk are considered so rich that people lose their mind, but can you even imagine that someone was even more rich than both of them and that too in the 15 th century, sounds unbelievable right.
But Yes , This is True. There was a man who was even more rich than the combined wealth of the richest people today . He was so wealthy that we can’t even imagine and counting the amount of money which he had would have been the longest and the toughest job of all times.
As the king of the Mali Empire in West Africa, Musa first came to power in 1312. At that point, the kingdom was already prosperous. But under the rule of Mansa Musa, Mali became even more wealthy. Taking advantage of the region’s natural resources – like gold and salt.
Some historians believe that his net worth was around 400 billion dollars and not only was he the richest man in the world but he was also a famous Haj traveller.
The pilgrimage to Mecca is one of the five main pillars of Islam, and Mansa Musa decided to embark on Hajj in 1324-1325. But, It was not like any other journey ever witnessed. Musa quite literally paved his path to Mecca with gold and put his kingdom on the map.
Mausa was not only rich but he also donated a lot of money to the poor people. He donated so much gold to the poor people that he dropped the value of gold and the economy of Egypt. Other than charity he used his money to build mosques . How do you feel about the richest man ever, writ in the comments below:
