There are over 1,500 billionaires across the world right now.In 2017, Amazon’s CEO became the richest man of the world. In 2016 & 2015, Bill Gates was the richest man in the world but still none of them have been the richest man of all time.
Meet, Mansa Musa, the richest man of all time.
He annexed the city of Timbuktu by building mosques, schools, and a major university. The mosques he built, some of them are still standing strong.
“Chroniclers describe an entourage of tens of thousands of soldiers, civilians and slaves, 500 heralds bearing gold staffs and dressed in fine silks, and many camels and horses bearing an abundance of gold bars”
Once in Cairo, Mansa Musa donated so much money to the poor that he caused mass inflation! It took years for the city to fully recover from the currency crisis.
Needless to say, His extravagant journey of life marked him forever on the map.
