Like all of the best cigars in the world, the El Rey del Mundo brand is deeply rooted in the culture and traditions of Cuba. Each of its different brands that are available today has evolved from the real King of the World that ruled the cigar world in the middle and late nineteenth century. Therefore, the various brands bear great semblance to its forefather that was created way back in the year 1848. The actual name of El Rey del Mundo at the time that it was launched for the first time was, in fact, The King of the World This brand of cigars was first introduced to Cuba and later to whole world by an entrepreneur named Emilio Ohmstedt from Germany. The brand was accompanied by another cigar brand called Sancho Panza. The King of the World cigars rose into popularity as the most sought-after cigar brands in the whole world at that time. The name of the brand was changed to El Rey del Mundo during the time that the brand was taken over by the factory of Antonio Allones. The history regarding how and when the brand came to be produced by Antonio Allones is very ambiguous because different records show different dates and the information that got transmitted down the centuries by word of mouth is also different. Some of the earliest records show that the brand was taken over by Antonio Allones in 1873. There are other records that show that the change of name and ownership came about in 1882. Whatever are the dates, it is a commonly understood fact that there was a change in ownership of the brand and that the new owner was Antonio Allones. Then again there is the ambiguity about whether Emilio Ohmstedt handed the brand over to Antonio Allones or whether Antonio Allones acquired the brand after Emilio Ohmstedts death. The theory that the brand was given to the Antonio Allones factory in around the year 1882 is widely accepted. There are some records that even show that Antonio Allones owned the brand way back in 1873. The other theory about the brand change is that The King of the World brand stopped production after the demise of Emilio Ohmstedt and that Antonio Allones re-registered the brand and began its operations under the name El Rey del Mundo. Though the records regarding the dates are a bit ambiguous, the popularity of the brand in the late nineteenth century and the early twentieth century is universally accepted. Right from the time of its inception, the El Rey del Mundo brand, or The King of the World enjoyed huge success because of the rich quality of the cigars. It became instantly popular as one of the greatest brands of Cuban cigars. The chief fan following for the brand accepted it as one of the best Havana cigar brands. The reason for its sudden growth into prominence as one of the great cigar brands is the high quality that it maintained. Along with the high quality, these cigars were mostly mild and wonderfully aromatic. Another feature that made people love these cigars was the packaging. These cigars had wrappers that were really dark and with an oily texture. The brand lives on today and is the favourite of those who love light or mild cigars, though a majority of the cigar-smoking populace go for harder brands of cigars.
