MANSA MUSA ART PRINT
👑 MANSA MUSA 🐐, From the land of Mali 🇲🇱 Season of the G.O.A.T. Collection Pt. 1 - “My bloodlines Crazy, Kings & Queens and MANSA MUSA Rings”.
Mansa Musa, fourteenth century Ruler of the Mali Empire. The Richest man whoever lived, his elaborate pilgrimage to the Muslim holy city of Mecca in 1324 introduced him to rulers in the Middle East and in Europe. His leadership of Mali, a state which stretched across two thousand miles from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Chad and which included all or parts of the modern nations of Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, and Chad, ensured decades of peace and prosperity in Western Africa.
Accompanied by thousands of richly dressed servants and supporters Musa made generous donations to the poor and to charitable organizations as well as the rulers of the lands his entourage crossed. On his stop in Cairo, Egypt, the Emperor gave out so much gold that he generated a brief decline in its value. Cairo’s gold market recovered over a decade later.
