Exposing the Sorcerers: House of Rothschild

Featured Image: One of Rothschild’s Palaces: Waddesdon, England

The House of Rothschild or the Rothschilds are overall one of the most powerful families in the world.  i say this due to the fact that not only does their linage and power go back generations beyond the American billionaires of the Rockefellers, Morgans, and Waltons; but that they have helped start and finance several wars over the centuries, and still retain power today.   Even now (June 2016) their website,, states under ‘who we are:’ “One of the world’s largest independent financial advisory groups… Rothschild & Co is a global and family-controlled group. We provide M&A, strategy and financing advice, as well as investment and wealth management solutions to large institutions, families, individuals and governments, worldwide.  Having been at the centre of the world’s financial markets for more than 200 years we can rely on an unrivaled global network of more than 2,800 financial specialists and a track-record of outstanding execution with 50 offices around the world.”

The Rothschild banking dynasty typically begins with Meyer Amschel Rothschild in the late-1700s.  Meyer and his five sons established banking houses in several great cities, and had elite merchants, kings, barons, dukes, politicians and governments for their clients.  However, Meyer did not simply wander into the banking business.  His father Amschel Moses Rothschild was a German Jewish money-changer and merchant in Frankfurt.  And before Amschel Moses was his father Moses Kalman Rothschild and his father Kalman Herz Rothschild and his father Herz Moses Rothschild and his father Moses Isaac Rothschild (Mosche Rotschild or Mose zum rot.Schild: c.1560-1635) and his father Isaac Elchanan Bacharach, zum Hahn, zum rot. Schild (also known as: Isaak Bauer c.1528-1588), the son of Elchanan zur roten Rose (also: Elchanan Bauer c.1496-1550) of Frankfurt.

CHAPTER ONE: Family History

According to, Rothschild: “Celebrated family of financiers, the Fuggers of the nineteenth century, deriving its name from the sign of a red shield borne by the house No. 148 in the Judengasse of Frankfort-on-the-Main. This house is mentioned in the “Judenstädtigkeit” of 1619, at which date its number was 69. Curiously enough, it at first bore the sign of a green shield (“Zum Gruünen Schild”).  It was restored in 1886, and, though not in its original location, it still remains in possession of the Rothschilds as a kind of family museum and memorial.  The earliest notice of a member of the family, given in the burial records of Frankfort, is that of Moses Rothschild (c.1550)… Members of the same family are mentioned at Worms in the 17th century… Mendel Rothschild was… rabbi of Worms for 14 years.”

The site continues, “Mayer Amschel Roths-child:  The first Rothschild of any prominence was one Amschel Moses Rothschild, a small merchant and money-changer at Frankfort-on-the-Main; but the founder of the house was his son Mayer Amschel Rothschild, born in that city about 1743…  He was at one time destined for the rabbinate, and studied for that purpose in Fürth. He soon changed his career, however, and took a post in the Oppenheim banking-house in Hanover. About 1760 he started in business for himself in his native city, in the house of his father, who was then dead. He married, Aug. 29, 1770, Güttele Schnapper, who lived to see her sons at the head of European finance. Mayer was a general agent and banker, and traded also in works of art and curios. In the latter connection he became an agent of William IX., Landgrave of Hesse-Cassel, who on his father’s death in 1785 had inherited the largest private fortune in Europe, derived mainly from the hire of troops to the British government for the putting down of the Revolution in the United States.   …It was only toward the end of 1798 that he had sufficient credit with the prince to undertake single-handed any large quantity of gold brokerage. From 1800 to 1806 the Landgrave placed with Rothschild 1,750,000 thaler, mostly at 4 per cent, part of it to be invested in Frankfort town loans, part in Danish loans. In 1801 he became the Landgrave’s court agent.”

A 2009 Forbes article stated, “Baron Rothschild, an 18th-century British nobleman and member of the Rothschild banking family, is credited with saying that ‘the time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.’  He should know. Rothschild made a fortune buying in the panic that followed the Battle of Waterloo against Napoleon. But that’s not the whole story. The original quote is believed to be ‘Buy when there’s blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own’.”

The American Revolutionary War lasted from 1775 to 1783.  During the war, a Spanish/Portuguese Jew named Naym Solomon was a financier that greatly aided the Continental Congress in gaining hundreds of thousands of dollars from international bankers.  Robert Morris the Superintendent for Finance for America relied on Solomon (Salomon) to come through with at least 75 loans.  In order to pay back international debts of the War, Alexander Hamilton and Robert Morris persuaded Congress and President George Washington to establish the First Bank of North America in 1781.  The Bank was granted a 20 year charter.  The Treaty of Paris ended the War in 1783, but several millions of dollars (billions in todays $) were still owed.

At the time of the Revolutionary War, Mayer A. Rothschild was in Hesse-Kassel (near Frankfurt), which was part of the Holy Roman Empire under William IV, son of Philip I of Landgrave.  Philip became a protector of the Lutheran church after meeting Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon.  Philip’s father, William II was commissioned by Emperor Maximilian I.   Through Philipp I protected Protestants – primarily Lutherans and Calvinist; Luther said he lived ‘constantly in a state of adultery and fornication.’  He had two legal wives and 19 children.  Standing against the Catholic Church did land Philip in prison.

Philip I’s son, William IV also grew to be a protector of the Protestants against the Catholic Church.  He had about 14 children with Maria Amaila, including William VIII, whose son Frederick II married Princess Mary of Great Britain (daughter of King George II and Landgravine of Hesse-Kassel).   Frederick and Mary had William I (also: William IX), who granted by Napoleon in 1803, would be Elector of Hesse.  In 1806, the Holy Roman Empire was dissolved and William I became the Prince-elector of the State of Hesse.  Hesse had connection with the House of Lorraine and thus the House of Hapsburg.

So various sources confirm that one or both Frederick II and his son William I (IX) grandson of King George II, supplied King George III (uncle to William) with 16,800 Hessian mercenaries for up to 3.2 million pounds.   As many as 30,000 of these experienced German troops for hire fought with the British against the Americans during the Revolutionary War.  Mayer A. Rothschild had connections with William I about that time.   Mayer had worked for the House of Oppenheim or Oppenheimer in Hanover.  In 1763, following his father’s death, Mayer moved back to Frankfurt (home of a great many German banks).  By 1769, Rot-schild (Red Shield; Rothschild) was appointed court factor to Prince William.
