According to Celebrity Net Worth, which is not Forbes, after adjusting for inflation they’ve created the list of the 25 richest people to ever live. Keep in mind that to create this list they assumed that because of the annual inflation rate of 2199.6% $100 million in the year 1913 is equal to $2.299.63 billion in 2012 dollars.

A little about Mansa Musa who tops the list:

Mansa Musa is mostly remembered for his extravagant hajj, or pilgrimage, to Mecca with, according to the Arab historian al-Umari, 100 camel-loads of gold, each weighing 300 lbs.; 500 slaves, each carrying a 4 lb. gold staff; thousands of his subjects; as well as his senior wife, with her 500 attendants. With his lavish spending and generosity in Cairo and Mecca, he ran out of money and had to borrow at usurious rates of interest for the return trip. Al-Umari also states that Mansa Musa and his retinue “gave out so much gold that they depressed its value in Egypt and caused its value to fall.” Mansa Musa died in 1337. He had brought stability and good government to Mali, spreading its fame abroad and making it truly “remarkable both for its extent and for its wealth and a striking example of the capacity of the Negro for political organization” VIA GRIND365
