In 1517, when returning from a diplomatic trip on behalf of the Sultan of Fez to Constantinople, he was at the Port of Rosetta during the Ottoman conquest of Egypt, Africa. He traveled through Cairo and Aswan across the Red Sea to Arabia where he completed a pilgrimage to Mecca. Returning to Tunis, he was captured by Spanish corsairs near the island of Djerba (near Crete) and was taken to Rome. Initially held in the Castel Sant’Angelo, he was released when his importance was realized and presented as a gift (freed?) to Pope Leo X. Al-Hassan ibn Muhammad al-Wazzan al-Fas’s name was changed to Leo Africanus.
Little is known about his later life but at the time he visited the west African city of Timbuktu, it was the center of commerce carried on by international traders in African products, gold, spices, Islamic books, printed cottons and slaves. While I was ill, 2007 to last year, I’d travel daily, on-line to exotic places. The first place I wanted to go was “Timbuktu” in present day Mali. It is import here to include something about the archives and libraries of Timbuktu.
