Mansa Musa I of Mali – ruler of the Malian Empire which is now modern day Ghana, Timbuktu and Mali, has been labeled as the richest person to have ever lived.


The obscure leader was born in 1280 and had a personal net worth of $400 billion (£248 billion) by the time he died in 1337.

The list Mansa Musa topped was compiled by website Celebrity Net Worth, who put together a 25-strong list spanning 1,000 years.

The list of the world’s richest ever is said to have a combined wealth of $4.317 trillion (£2.678 trillion), of just the 25 names alone.

Only three people on the list are still living today – Microsoft tycoon Bill Gates, Mexican Business mogul Carlos Slim Helu and US investor Warren Buffett.

The infamous Rothschild family made second place, with John D. Rockefeller coming in as top three. Over half on the list – 14 out of the top 25 – are Americans.
