I think Mali was the most successful. I think this because during it Sundiata helped create a large army. During Mali Mansa Musa took a pilgrimage to Mecca and showed how wealthy Mali is by giving gold away. By having himself convert to Islam this made more people trade with Mali. Mansa Musa also added more trade routes including Timbuktu.
I agree with Luke. Mali's large army and Mansa Musa's pilgramage helped make the Mali empire more successful.
I agree with Luke, Mansa Musa´s pilgramage brought great attention to Mail, which increased trade. He also changed his religion, which also increased trade.
I agree with Luke because if they didn't pilgrimage to Mecca then they learned a lot about other cultures.This allowed them to do stuff that they didn't know was possible.
I agree with Luke because if he didn't go to Mecca, I doubt it would be as successful. That is why i agree with Luke.
I agree with you because they had an good army.And the trip to mecca helped.
I think that the Mali Empire was the most successful because Sundiata created a professional army and navy. Also when Sundiata took control of the salt&gold trade routes improving agriculture in Mali. By improving agriculture that improved trade, and the improved trade made the empire more successful. Mansa Musa's pilgramage to Mecca kind of showed the Mali has lots of riches.
I agree because Mali was able to become very powerful. Mansa Musa's pilgrimage really helped Mali, and it improved the living conditions.
I agree with Angelina, I also think the Mali empire was the most successful. By having Mansa Musa take his pilgrimage to Mecca and by giving away gold that showed how wealthy Mali was and increased trade.
I agree with you Luke because It would be so much easier to trade with more people because it gives them an opportunity to get new things. It also can make them richer and spread religion and culture.
I think that the most successful West African Kingdom was the Ghana Kingdom.i think this because they made the most money, since they taxed people on their way in and their way out. This is what led to the Ghana Kingdom being so rich. This gave them an advantage over other kingdoms.
I agree with Julien that the Ghana empire had the best economy. Which is why they were so rich.
i agree because there army would take down almost every army because they had strong army's.and they were rich in gold.
I think Mali was the most successful. I say that because they were able to greatly improve education in Mali. Also, because of Mansa Musa's pilgrimage, they got richer and more powerful.
I think that Ghana was the best empire because of silent barter. This gave them goods from the trade and also from the taxes the entering and leaving traders had to pay. This generated some wealth that could be used for the empire.
I agree because having good education was good so you would be more sucsecfull. I also think being more wealthy is good so the you can have better stuff than others that you need.
I believe Ghana was the most successful. They set up near the Niger like everyone else and were near gold and salt mines.
You said that they set up along the river like eveyone else. And that they were not the only Empire to control the salt and gold trade. So how does that make them more successful than the other West African Empires.
I agree with you Jeremy. I agree with you because the gold and salt very affected their wealth.
Mali in my opinion was the most successful West African kingdom. Mansa Musa's pilgrimage to Mecca made a huge impact on trade and wealth. On the pilgrimage he gave out tons and tons of gold to show West Africa's wealth. It brought West Africa to many peoples attention and they went there to trade with Mali.
I agree since he shared his gold for mali to be noticed. Also he didn't just share the gold with one other empire he shared it with a lot of empires.
I Agree with you Melle, Mansa Musa pilgrimage made a very big impact on trade. Mansa Musa´s pilgrimage did bring a lot of attention to Mali.
I believe that Mali was the most successful West African Kingdom because of Mansa Musa. His pilgramage to Mecca brought great attention the Mail,which increased trade. Then Mali made more $money$, because Mansa Musa put a tax on going into and out of trade routes.
I agree with you Nicole. Because of his trip to Mecca they had more people to trade with. This means they have more things that they can use to survive, like salt.
I think Mali was the most succesful because they were under the rule of Mansa Musa. Mansa Musa built more libraries, and schools. He also did a pilgrimage which helped Mali.
I think Mali because mansa Musa went to travel so mali was then noticed around the world. He started to share his gold with other empires and even egypt as well
i think the most successful is mali because they were the smartest because they had schools. they also got the most trade because all the gold that they had.
I think Mali is the most successful empire out of all the West African empires. I believe this because it had built Mosques, Schools and Library. This is why I believe that the Mali empire was the most successful.
I think that the Mali was most successful. I think so because of Mansa Musa, his pilgrimage to Mecca showed that he was Islamic too so more varieties of traders would do business with him because, traders would what to trade with people of there own religion. Plus when he was going to Mecca he gave away tons of gold and built homes and schools. Now that he did all that people that they were super rich so more and more traders came. That made Mali richer and more powerful.
Mali was very successful because they are the ones who made the rest of the world aware of their existence. This opened up trade routes with Asia and Europe. But Ghana started the gold and salt trade which allowed for the other 2 West African Kingdoms to thrive. If it wasn't for Ghana, Mali may have never existed.
*I think Mali was more successful just wanted to give a counter point!
I agree with Jack. I agree with jack because Mansa Musa Made trade to where you dont have to trade with your religion.Also he did give gold to make them powerful so they can open more trade routes also so people knew they were rich.
I agree with Jack but even with all that gold he let people know that there were civilizations past the Sahara and not just desert past it. The schools and mosques were also things that helped trade because as you said, People like to trade with others of the same religion and they would also want to learn how the schools succeed in helping people learn.
I think that Mali was the most successful because Mansa Musa's pilgrimage to Mecca made the know world at the time see hat there was a civilization past the Sahara desert and that hey were also rich. Because of this they began to trade even more Trade routes making Mali even richer. Another reason it was so successful was because Sundiata made a professional army making them control the trade routes further meaning no one would try to pillage it and they had better protection for their cities.
I think Mali is the most successful because they improved education. They also took a pilgrimage which helped open more trade routes. They gave gold to other places to let them know that they had gold to make people come to there routes.
I think Ghana was the most important because Ghana lies between the Sahara and the vast forest and which is a great place for trade. As trade got bigger in Ghana the more power it got.
I think Mali was the most sucsesfull because they had a profesinal army. They also improved trade which made them more sucsefull. They were also more smart then others because they had built more schools.
I think Mali was the most successful because of all the gold they had that was available to trade. Mansa Musa made the "friends" with other rulers. This opened up more trade routes.
I think the Mali Empire was the most successful. First of all Mansa Musa led his pilgrimage to Mecca to show of his wealth. He showed of all his gold he brought with him to mecca to the other civilizations. He also gave away gold to them. This increased trade for the Mali Empire.
I think the Mali empire is the most valuable.Because there trades.were good and successful
I agree with Luke.Because they trades were good.
I think Mali is the most sucsesfull because they had a sucsesfull army.The trip to Mecca also helped because more people new about mali. They also improved education.
