There was more to Barney Barnato than the biography brought out. He was one of the key figures in the creation of the De Beers Diamond Company Cartel that was headed by his rival Cecil Rhodes. He was an amusing figure in the South African and British financial scenes of the 1880s and 1890s. His nerves could not stand the strain and led to his tragic suicide while going back to England by ocean liner. Rest in peace Barney - you deserved a nicer fate.
