Rise of the Rothschilds
Now, let’s learn about the rise of the Rothschilds. Some activists have pointed out that there doesn’t seem to be any evidence of the Rothschilds being a part of the ‘global conspiracy’ because they can’t find the family name in any of their research.
It seems that the Rothschild name is purposely kept off of most of the things they’re a part of, and despite what anyone says, you’re encouraged to do your own research and determine for yourself if they’re a legitimate threat.
I was surprised to learn that Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who was responsible for the success that propelled his family to the top, started out living in poverty in Frankfurt, Germany in the 1700s.
He had to endure daily humiliation in Frankfurt; a place that, at the time, treated Jews like second class citizens.
The ghetto in which his family lived passed an ordinance banning Jewish citizens from farming, handicraft and dealing in goods like weapons or fresh fruit, and they were often targets of prejudice in the community.
These laws were clearly designed to keep them from making a decent living, but Mayer Amschel was able to overcome it and rise to the position with which we associate the Rothschild name today.
Clever Business Deals
Mayer Amschel became a prominent and wealthy figure first by apprenticing at the Bank of Oppenheimer shortly after his father’s death. After three years, he became a junior partner. He was able to purchase his father’s home with the money he’d earned, and the home was adorned with a red shield that symbolized revolution.
He started to rise in the ranks by making clever deals with European royalty, which included handling difficult or sketchy transactions they didn’t want to be associated with, and he would also sell rare coins at low prices.
The information up to this point gives us an idea of how the Rothschilds came to power, but how did cunningness and ingenuity on the part of this one man become an empire? The answer: his sons.
The Rothschilds and European Royalty
Mayer Amschel’s five sons went on to hold prominent positions in five different European countries.
The book, The Rothschilds: A Family Portrait unapologetically draws the link between the Rothschilds and European royalty (each son rose to a high position in their respective countries), and this information isn’t really mentioned in the media or in books these days.
Again, you hardly hear or read the Rothschild name these days but their power and influence, which is still very much intact, were known and openly admitted not too long ago.
David Wilcock points out that the Rothschild’s ties to royalty were no secret.
“The Rothschild name is no longer commonly heard in mainstream media – but this wasn’t the case when The Rothschilds was written in 1962. Their deep connections to royalty were openly admitted in the book.”
This snippet from The Rothschilds book from just a few decades ago makes this clear:
5: No modern name breathes a more storied eminence. No nonroyal family has held so much power so consistently, so peculiarly….
It would be insufficient to sum up the family as ‘still very wealthy.’ The Rothschild fortunes in England and in France are as ineffable as ever….
6: For generations the people at Buckingham Palace have recognized the kinship: Queen Victoria often dined and slept in Rothschild houses; the Duke of Windsor fled to a Rothschild (an Austrian one) directly after his abdication.
11: The two big [Rothschild] banks in London and Paris (probably the world’s largest private financial institutions)… have not so much as a name plate outside.
Though they control scores of industrial, commercial, mining and tourist corporations, not one bears the name Rothschild.
Being privately held partnerships, the family houses never need to, and never do, publish a single public balance sheet or any other report of their financial condition.
This is an unsettling level of power and secretive corporate control, and it may explain why the Rothschilds are suspiciously absent from so much of the research you can do on the topic of conspiracy.
They Know What They’re Doing
As Mayer’s rise to prominence displays, these people aren’t stupid; they know what they’re doing and they’ve worked hard to keep it a secret.
No family secretly ruling the world wants their name plastered everywhere; instead, they prefer to maintain secrecy of the highest order so their figureheads can take the fall when the people catch them on something.
It might not be as easy to slip away from accountability for the Rockefellers since their name is a little more public, but the Rothschilds have been careful not to put their name on their corporations and can manage not to be associated with most things. I’m sure most people don’t even know the Rothschild name.
The World’s First Multinational Corporation
David Wilcock writes that in a sense, Mayer’s five sons established the world’s first multinational corporation by ‘distributing themselves’ throughout Europe. I mentioned earlier that his sons held important positions in five European countries, which greatly expanded their power and influence, and this allowed them to build on Amschel Mayer’s success.
Amschel (Jr.), one of Mayer’s five sons, would go on to be treasurer of the German Confederation. Mayer’s son Salomon achieved an ‘exalted’ station in imperial Vienna that was apparently sought by Prince Landgrave William.
Nathan Rothschild rose to an unprecedented level of wealth and power in England by deceiving the masses in a time of war, and James Mayer de Rothschild (aka Jakob) would become an advisor to two French kings as well as the “most powerful banker in the country”.
Carl Mayer founded the Rothschild banking family of Naples. He didn’t achieve quite as much as his other brothers; especially Nathan, who, as I mentioned before, cunningly multiplied his wealth by an insane amount and left others broke.
