He beccame the richest person in Britain due to his wealth (Indians say plunder) gained from Bengal - the richest province of the richest country on Earth, India.

He built up his property empire in England after overseeing the foundation of the British empire, only to commit suicide. I recommend the BBC iplayer programme (I have a personal interest in the story because my country of origin is Bengal):
