Robert’s View

The #1 Musa 1 of Mali (c. 1280 – c. 1337) was because of tons of gold. Musa’s generous actions, however, inadvertently devastated the economy of the region. In the cities of Cairo, Medina and Mecca, the sudden influx of gold devalued the metal for the next decade. Prices on goods and wares greatly inflated. To rectify the gold market, Musa borrowed all the gold he could carry from money-lenders in Cairo, at high interest. This is the only time recorded in history that one man directly controlled the price of gold in the Mediterranean.

I was surprised that a Chinese Emperor, Kublai Khan, or Alexander The Great were not in the top 10.
