The Rothschild

Through 5 sons, Mayer Amschel Rothschild expands his banking business which was established in the 1760s. Ten international places and such managed to pass his big wealth, different from many wealthy members of the Jewish community at that time. Five sons of Mayer Amschel were stained at major European financial centers: London, Frankfurt, Naples, Vienna, and Paris. This passing on Mayer Amschel’s wealth and business meant that his sons could continue to expand the foundations of their father’s success.

In the 19th century, the Rothschild family was well known all over the financial world. Their great luck and genius business minds meant that they kept strong power during this time. They used this power by affecting some magnificent events in humanity’s history to profit enormously from it. This included backing the British forces with large sums of money during the Napoleonic wartime and funding Brazil’s claim for independence from Portugal.

The Napoleonic war started in 1803 and continued throughout for 12 years before coming to an end in 1815. Rothschild’s family already held a considerable worth by the time Napoleonic wars begin; they never stop interfering until towards the end of the war in 1813. At this time, Nathan Mayer Rothschild saw Napoleonic’s war efforts threatening his business practices and decided to enter the war to help defeat the French. Nathan Mayer Rothschild entered into the rebellion in 1513 and was the most important person providing financial support for the British war efforts. This started with the precious metal shipments for the armies of the Wellington stationed across Europe.

To this, as an add-on, Nathan Mayer Rothschild also takes a large sum of money into financing the British allies; this is nearly $10 million in 1815 alone. This large financing operation from Nathan Mayer and his brother made them the only family that influenced the family to maintain a significant role in Napolean’s defeat and the subsequent Napoleonic Wars. He didn’t do this because of his goodness of heart; he used it to fulfill his advantage.


The Rothschild family brought up the British economy, and now the head of the Rothschild family Nathaniel Charles Jacob Rothschild, also worth $5 billion. The story of the Rothschild family is fantastic in the financial world.
