“The House Of Rothschild Summary”

If you haven’t heard of The Rothschild family, you probably need some schooling. Not only that Rothschild was (and still is) one of the wealthiest families in the history of the world, but it was also highly influential in politics and other spheres.  

The real question is – How can we explain that expansion and success? It all started with Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812). As a father and a Jew living in Germany, he didn’t have a flying start, but a step-by-step growth and vision.

Anti-Semitism was ever-present in those days, and Jews not only in Frankfurt but throughout Europe faced constant discrimination in matters of arts, economics, law, politics by anti-Jewish individuals.

According to some testimonies, Rothschild at the height of his success often had a large pile of money lying around on his desk, or on the floor.

Mayer Amschel Rothschild established a large base of influential clients, among them were William IX, Hereditary Prince, Landgrave and many others.
