Businesses Done By The Wealthiest Man Ever

Though Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world, research has shown that he is not the wealthiest man of all time.

According to British Broadcast Corporation, BBC, the 14th-century emperor of Mali, Mansa Musa is regarded as the richest man ever with 400 billion dollars as his net worth.

The emperor, who made his fortune from gold and salt, ruled from 1312 to 1337.

Mansa Musa, who was born in 1280 into a family of rulers, inherited the throne when his brother Mansa Abu-Bakr abdicated to go on an expedition.

The emperor was able to grow his kingdom under his rule, annexing 24 cities, however, after he died in 1337 at the age of 57, the empire which was taken over by his sons fell because they could not hold it.

You will recall that Everyevery.ng had earlier reported that the CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, may become the world’s first trillionaire by 2026.
