Golden History of Mansa Musa

Image

Mansa Musa was the historic ruler of a powerful empire in West Africa called Mali, it was the largest empire in the world at one point. Mansa Musa is most famous for his journey to Mecca, and distribution of gold in Egypt. It is has been reported that he travelled with sixty-thousand people dressed in the finest silks, twelve thousand servants with five-hundred carried gold staffs, and eighty camels carrying two tons of gold. Mansa Musa distributed gold to the needy as he continued on his way to Mecca. He gave away so much gold in Egypt, he offset the market and it did not recover until years later. This is an prime example of OUR RICH HISTORY, many more examples to come. Awaken your inner royalty!
