Mansa Musa was a powerful ruler of the Mali Empire who lived in the 13th century. He was born in 1280 and was the tenth Sultan of the Mali Empire. He was known to be one of the wealthiest people in the world due to the abundance of gold and salt in his kingdom. He became famous after making the hajj pilgrimage to Mecca with a large entourage of 60,000 people. He was known for annexing neighbouring states, building mosques, and establishing madrasas, particularly in Timbuktu, which he turned into a centre for trade and learning. Unfortunately, his successors were unable to maintain his legacy and the kingdom of Mali eventually fell to invaders from Morocco and the kingdom of Songhai.

Famous Quotes:

The ruler who preceded me did not believe that it was impossible to reach the extremity of the ocean that encircles the earth (the Atlantic Ocean). He wanted to reach that (end) and was determined to pursue his plan. So he equipped two hundred boats full of men, and many others full of gold, water and provisions sufficient for several years. He ordered the captain not to return until they had reached the other end of the ocean, or until he had exhausted the provisions and water. So they set out on their journey. They were absent for a long period, and, at last just one boat returned. When questioned the captain replied: "O Prince, we navigated for a long period, until we saw in the midst of the ocean a great river which was flowing massively. My boat was the last one; others were ahead of me, and they were drowned in the great whirlpool and never came out again. I sailed back to escape this current." But the Sultan would not believe him. He ordered two thousand boats to be equipped for him and his men, and one thousand more for water and provisions. Then he conferred the regency on me for the term of his absence, and departed with his men, never to return nor to give a sign of life.
