Rothschild family tree..


The Rothschild family is a European family of German Jewish origin that established European banking and finance houses from the late eighteenth century.

The Rothschild family was founded by Mayer Amschel Rothschild. Wanting his sons to succeed on their own and to expand the family business across Europe, he had his eldest son remain in Frankfurt, while his four other sons were sent to different European cities with the mission of establishing a financial institution to invest in business and provide banking services. Endogamy within the family was an essential part of the Rothschild strategy in order to ensure control of their wealth remained in family hands. Through their collaborative efforts, the Rothschilds rose to prominence in a variety of banking endeavours including loans, government bonds and trading in bullion. Their financing afforded investment opportunities and during the 19th century they became major stakeholders in large-scale mining and rail transport ventures that were fundamental to the rapidly expanding industrial economies of Europe.

Five lines of the Austrian branch of the family were elevated into the Austrian nobility, being given hereditary baronies of the Habsburg Empire by Emperor Francis II in 1816. The British branch of the family was elevated into the British nobility at the request of Queen Victoria.

This article shows the family tree of some of the prominent branches of the Rothschild family.

Mayer Amschel Rothschild was born in 1744 in the ghetto in Frankfurt. At the age of 13, he went to Hanover to serve an apprenticeship with the bank of Wolf Jakob Oppenheim. At the age of 19, he returned to Frankfurt. There he joined his brother Calmann’s money-changing business. He became a dealer in rare coins and won the patronage of Wilhelm IX of Hesse, gaining the title of “Court Factor”. Rothschild’s coin business expanded through the provision of banking services to Wilhelm IX. His bank became one of the biggest in Frankfurt.

Rothschild Name Meaning…

German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): habitational name from a house distinguished with a red sign (Middle High German rot ‘red’ + schilt ‘sign’, ‘shield’), the earliest recorded example dating from the 13th century. The famous banking family of this name took it from a house so marked in the Jewish quarter of Frankfurt-am-Main, but the name has also been adopted by many Ashkenazic Jews unrelated to the family. In Britain the surname is normally given the spelling pronunciation ‘Roths-child’; the original pronunciation is ‘Rote-shilt’. (Source Wikipedia).

If experience is indeed a qualifying factor in an individual’s, or a group of individual’s ability to function in their chosen profession, then I would agree that the Rothschild family is well-qualified, ..if not overqualified in the world of banking.

Of course, with that said, and with no disrespect to the Rothschild family, (in my humble opinion) America has a constitution that not only dictates by (article 1, section 8) that the Congress is: …

“To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.”

There is no article in the U.S. Constitution to authorize a (private for-profit) corporation to: “Coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.”

The Federal Reserve Bank is a system of 12 banks privately owned and for-profit corporations registered in twelve states from Oregon to Rhode Island.

The federal reserve banking system initiated in 1913 by then President Woodrow Wilson for a campaign contribution of $80,000. The Federal Reserve has never been audited nor is there any verifiable knowledge as to the identity of the six hundred registered shareholders.

As a matter of public record, the U.S. taxpayers paid the Federal Reserve system $286 Billion dollars in interest on money borrowed from the Federal Reserve.

The money borrowed by the United States government from the federal reserve was issued from the U.S. treasury. The United States treasury is maintained by taxes received from U.S. citizens.

Question: Any of you college graduates out there starting to get the picture?

If not, ..I would appreciate it, ..if everyone reading today’s offering would send me $100, which I will immediately return to you as a loan at only 3 ½% interest.

Thank you for your attention, I’ll be back tomorrow
