Mansa Musa Ringer T-Shirt
Mansa Musa (c. 1280 – c. 1337 C.E.) is said to be the wealthiest person in history. King Musa was the Emperor or Sultan of the Mali Empire in Western Africa, ruling for around 25 years. Mansa Musa’s wealth in today’s money has been estimated to be around $400 billion dollars, which would make him richer than modern business tycoons like Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jeff Bezos.
The Mali Empire was one of the largest empires in the medieval world, and the wealthiest in all of Africa. It included parts of the modern-day Western African countries of Burkina Faso, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Côte d'Ivoire, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, the Gambia, Senegal, Mauritania, and Mali. Mansa Musa made most of his money from mining and controlling the trade in gold, copper, iron, salt, ivory, as well as agricultural production. The Mali Empire was the medieval “Old” World’s largest producer of gold, and Mansa Musa owned and supplied roughly half of the gold that circulated during those times. Mali had prosperous, cultured, and learned cities like Timbuktu, with world-class centers of learning. This included Sankoré University, which had one of the world’s largest libraries, with some one million books and manuscripts.
