Public Domain Mansa Musa, fourteenth century emperor of the Mali Empireis the medieval African ruler most known to the world outside Africa. His elaborate pilgrimage to the Muslim holy city of Mecca in 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 MauritaniaSenegalGambiaGuineaBurkina FasoMali, NigerNigeriaand Chad, ensured decades of peace and prosperity in Western Africa.
When he was crowned, he was given the name Mansa meaning king. Mansa Musa was knowledgeable in Arabic and was described as a Muslim traditionalist.
He became the first Muslim ruler in West Africa to make the nearly four thousand mile journey to Mecca. Preparing for the expedition took years and involved the work of artisans in numerous towns and cities across Mali.
In Musa began his pilgrimage with a entourage of thousands of escorts. He also brought considerable amounts of gold, some of which was distributed along the journey.
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. Upon his return from Mecca, Mansa Musa brought Arab scholars, government bureaucrats, and architects.
Among those who returned with him was the architect Ishaq El Teudjin who introduced advanced building techniques to Mali. He designed numerous buildings for the Emperor including a new palace named Madagou, the mosque at Gaothe second largest city in Mali, and the still-standing great mosque at Timbuktuthe largest city in the empire.
That mosque was named the Djinguereber. The awareness of Musa by other Islamic leaders brought increased commerce and scholars, poets, and artisans, making Timbuktu one of the leading cities in the Islamic world during the time when the most advanced nations from Spain to central India were Muslim.
Timbuktu was clearly the center of Islamic Sub-Saharan Africa.
For the next two centuries ItalianGermanand Spanish cartographers produced maps of the world which showed Mali and which often referenced Mansa Musa. Mansa Musa died in after a twenty-five year reign. He was succeeded by his son, Maghan I.
