Power and Wealth: The Origins of the Rothschild Family
We are all aware of how the majority of the world’s wealth in the hand of a few influential families. These few families or the one percent of the world have been responsible for every major event taking place in every corner of the world.
Rothschild Family is considered as the most powerful and wealthiest of the entire tiny minority controlling the world’s wealth, influencing global politics, inciting wars and articulating most of the world’s financial crisis.
The Rothschild family has its origins in the 18th century, Germany. Mayer Amschel Rothschild, the founding member of the family, was a court Jew, a term referring to Jewish bankers who dealt primarily with the nobility.
The family has been in control of the world’s wealth for centuries and their influence reaching far beyond every echelon of power.
In this article, we will take a look at this influential family and try to understand who they really are, as opposed to who they claim to be.
Khazarian Ashkenazi Decedents
From the founder of the Rothschild family to the ones in our present day, all claim to be of Jewish ancestry — a claim that has been instrumental in their elevation as the most powerful family in the world.
However, they have simply adapted to the changing social dynamics in order to benefit themselves.
Before claiming to be Jewish, the ancestors of Rothschild were Khazars, hailing from the Kingdom of Khazaria, the most powerful polity during the 7th century.
During those times, religious affiliations held huge significance in terms of political power and foreign relations. Khazars, who practiced a Turkic form of religion known as Tengrism, found it more beneficial to convert to Judaism, which resulted in the mass religious conversions of the Khazarian elite or nobility.
During the 10th century, their major alliances had started to collapse, without support and constant conflict eroded the power of the kingdom and before its eventual collapse, the ruling elite migrated to Europe under the guise of Judaism.
Hence, a majority of the people today who claim to be Jews were, in fact, Khazars or Ashkenazi Jews. Despite their Asiatic Mongolian genes, they could claim their birthright over the land of Israel, despite their original homeland being what is now known as Georgia.
This deception allowed them to enter the Jewish circle and enjoy the benefits associated with the ethno-religious and cultural group.
They used the influence to climb up the social ladder in monarchial Europe, with some even becoming nobles and starting their own dynasties, eventually acquiring political power in more than one kingdom.
The Rothschild Family
The Ashkenazi Jews had opted for the centuries old practice of changing their family and identity in order to present themselves as part of the dominant race in the country they resided.
This is because minorities usually faced persecution or marginalization at the hand of the majority, which would restrict their social mobility.
This allowed them to obtain influential positions in their respective countries and work towards their hidden agendas. Rothschild is the perfect example of such family that elevated themselves through deception and other unscrupulous means.
The Rothschild family took this practice to another level. They would sire many undocumented offspring, who would then be placed into various positions of power and would help the main family in their ambitions without raising suspicions of their ulterior motives.
This was started by the first person to take the family name Rothschild. Although it is known that he had five sons, who went on to establish an international banking network in five different nations, he also had another son, the sixth member of the original Rothschild family, who was not officially documented.
How the Rothschilds became the masters of our planet
Before I conclude the first part of this article, I want to make sure that everyone understand that the point of this article is not to single out a person or a race of people.
But rather inform the people of the Rothschild family and its influence on the world as we know it and how they profited from the suffering of millions.
Now that we understand the origins of the Rothschild family, we will continue to talk about the influence of the family in shaping the world and profiting from the suffering of millions, but more importantly, masterminding almost every major event that has occurred since the 18th century.
Power and Wealth: The Timeline of the Rothschild Family (1740s – 1770s)
In the power and wealth series, we will try to dissect historical events and try to understand the extent of influence exerted on the global events by the Rothschild family, the single most powerful family in the history of human civilization.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild
In 1744, Mayer Amschel Bauer was born in the free city of Frankfurt, Germany, to an Ashkenazi Jew who ran a counting house and also worked as a money exchanger.
On the entrance door of his counting house hung a red hexagram sign; this would translate numerically and geometrically into the number 666.
Interesting, the same sign ended up on the Israeli flag around two hundred years a late, evidence of the extent of Rothschild influence over the State of Israel.
Around fifteen years later, Mayer Rothschild started working for a bank owned by the Oppenheimer family in Hanover, Germany.
During this period, he proved himself to have a natural inclination towards the field of finance and his success resulted in his becoming a junior partner at the bank. During his time at the bank, he met General von Estorff, with whom he became acquainted over the course of his tenure at the bank.
Following the death of his father, he returned to Frankfurt in order to take over his father’s business. It was during this time that he changed his last name from Bauer to Rothschild when he realized the significance of the red sign. In German, red is translated as Rot, whereas Schild is translated as Sign.
Soon after Mayer discovered that his friend General von Estorff was closely associated with one of the richest royal houses in Europe, Hesse-Hanau.
Prince William IX had acquired his wealth and elevated his house by offering his army as mercenaries for hire to foreign countries for huge sums of money, a practice that still continues to this day in the form of peacekeeping missions.
He decided to re-acquaint with the General on the pretext of selling valuable trinkets and coins at an irresistibly discounted price. As he had anticipated, he was introduced to the Prince, who pleased at the dealings and allowed him to enter his circle of associates.
The initial investment proved to be extremely lucrative, as he would be conducting business with no just the Prince but also the members of the royal court.
He soon realized the advantages of dealing with governments rather than individuals and soon became a court Jew, a person involved in providing loans to the members of the court or nobility.
The Advent of Illuminati
In 1769, Prince Williams gave his permission to hang a sign on the Mayer’s official premises reading, “M.A. Rothschild, by appointment court factor to his serene highness, Prince William of Hanau.”
A year later, he came up with an idea for an organization, which went on to become the infamous Illuminati. The organization was placed under the authority of another Ashkenazi Jew, Adam Weishaupt.
Weishaupt, although, a Jewish descendant, had become Roman Catholic in his outwardly persona. The Illuminati was based on the teaching of the Talmud – the teachings associated with the Rabbinical Jews. The term Illuminati means the keepers of the light.
During this time, Mayer married Gutle Schnaper, the daughter of an influential and respected merchant, Wolf Salomon Schnaper.
And soon had his second child and his eldest son, Amschel Mayer Rothschild, who along with his four other brothers, proved to be instrumental in the elevation of the Rothschild family.
In 1976, Weishaupt officially established the Illuminati, which came into being with the sole purpose of dividing the entire non-Jewish populace or goyim through economic, social, political, and religious intrigue.
The organization fueled conflicts among the goyim and then provided them with arms and weapons, and then watched as they would fight amongst themselves, destroying governments, religious institutions and eventually eroded their own power.
The same year, Weishaupt managed to infiltrate the Continental Order of Freemasons with the Illuminati doctrine and established their secret headquarters in the lodges of the Grand Orient. All of this was masterminded and funded by Mayer Amschel Rothschild.
He then went on to recruit thousands of intellectuals with varying expertise. They were assigned the following tasks:
- Use whatever means necessary to acquire control over officials at high ranking position in the government and other influential areas.
- Influence the faculties of higher education institutions to single out students exhibiting exceptional mental abilities, as well as belonging to wealthy, influential and connected families and influence them to opt for special training in internationalism, rather than allowing them to develop nationalistic ideals. Such training was funded through scholarships by the Illuminati.
- Direct all those under the influence of Illuminati, including students, to act as agents and lobby for the realization of the doctrines of Illuminati, that is to bring about one-world order and the destruction of the governments and religious institutions they were appointed or elected to serve.
- Lastly, to obtain absolute control over the press to propagate the masses towards a one-world order.
Power and Wealth: The Timeline of the Rothschild Family (1780s – 1810s)
In 1784, Xavier Zwack, an associate of Weishaupt wrote a book to incite the French Revolution under the directives of Weishaupt.
The book was sent to Maximillen by courier from Frankfurt to Paris. However, en route, the courier was struck and the book detailing the plan was discovered by the police and brought to the attention of the Bavarian authorities.
As a result, the Bavarian authorities initiated a raid against the Masonic lodges, along with the homes of all the high ranking members.
By 1785, the Illuminati was banned and all of the Bavarian lodges of the Grand Orient were closed down. Around the same time, Mayer Rothschild moved with his family to a five story house in Frankfurt, which he shared with the Schiff family.
The Rise of the Rothschilds
In 1786, the Bavarian government tried to warn all of the heads of states and churches throughout Europe by publishing the details of the Illuminati plot in a document entitled, “The Original Writings of the Order and Sect of the Illuminati.”
However, the warnings were ignored.
Despite the warning issued by the Bavarian government, the French Revolution began in 1789 and concluded in 1799 with the enactment of a new constitution and various laws that expelled the Church’s influence. This was literally a banker’s dream come true.
In 1790, Mayer Amschel is quoted as saying:
“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.”
A year later, the Rothschild family acquired control over a nation’s money, when Alexander Hamilton, an agent of the family in George Washington’s cabinet, set up a central bank, First Bank of the United States.
In 1796, Amschel Mayer Rothschild, married Eva Hanau.
In 1798, John Robison published a book: “Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe Carried on in the Secret Meetings of Freemasons, Illuminati and Reading Societies.”
The book gave details of the entire Rothschild Illuminati plot from the first hand experiences Robison had, who had been invited by Weishaupt to join the secret society.
After turning 21, Nathan Mayer Rothschild, the third son of Mayer, leaves Frankfurt with large sums of money and established a bank in London. In 1800, Salomon Mayer married Caroline Stern.
In 1806, Napoleon stated that he intended to remove the house of Hess-Cassel from their position of power and removed their name from the list of powers.
This forced Prince William IX to flee Germany for Denmark, where he entrusted his fortune, valued around $3,000,000 to Mayer Amschel for safekeeping.
The same year, Nathan Mayer got married to Hannah Barent Cohen, the daughter of a wealthy merchant from London and two years later had his first son, Lionel Nathan de Rothschild.
In 1820, Salomon Mayer was sent to Vienna and established the M.von Rothschild.
The War of 1812
In 1811, the charter for the Rothschild’s Bank in United States expired and the congress voted against its renewal.
To this Nathan Mayer was quoted as:
“Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.”
However, the United States ignored the warning, resulting in Nathan to issue another threat:
“Teach those impudent Americans a lesson. Bring them back to colonial status.”
In 1812, under the directive of Nathan Mayer and backed by the Rothschild wealth, the British declared war on the United States.
The objective was to cause the United States of accumulate a huge amount of debt fighting the war, which would cause them to surrender to the wills of the Rothschild, which the family could leverage to renew the charter for the First Bank of the United States.
The same year, Mayer Amschel Rothschild passed away. His will dictated specific laws that the House of Rothschild were to follow:
- All positions of significance in the business can only be held by a family member;
- Only men would be allowed to participate in the business, including the sixth secret son.
Another thing to note was that Mayer Amschel also had five daughters, who spread the Rothschild dynasty without the name of the money, allowing them to operate without drawing attention that comes from the name Rothschild.
According to Jewish tradition, children from a non-Jewish father and a Jewish mother are considered as solely Jewish. The family members were to only marry their first and second cousins, which would allow them to preserve the family fortune and in the process, its influence.
Furthermore, no public records were to be released regarding the family’s assets and the eldest son would, by default, became the head of the family, unless the majority of the family would agree to a different nominee.
Thus, Amschel Mayer Rothschild was made the head of the family.
Power and Wealth: The Timeline of the Rothschild Family (1810s)
Following the death of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, Amschel Mayer was elected as the head of the family, according to the bylaws dictated in the will of Mayer Amschel.
The same year, James (Jacob) Mayer traveled to Paris to establish the French division of the family bank, de Rothschild Frères.
According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, 1905 edition, Volume 10, Mayer Amschel hid Prince William IX’s wealth in wine casks and successfully evaded Napoleon’s soldiers when they invaded Germany and later Prince William returned to his official position as an electorate of Germany.
However, it is believed Rothschild never returned the money to Prince William. Instead, Nathan Mayer invested the entire, $3,000,000 into gold brought back by the East India Company.
Fueling Both Sides of the Conflict
In 1815, all five of the Rothschild brothers devised a plan to profit from the ongoing war in Europe. The gold was supplied to both of the primary parties involved in the conflict, Duke of Wellington and Napoleon.
Nathan who operated in England funded Wellington’s army, whereas James, who operated out of France, funded Napoleon’s army.
This is where they began their policy of funding all sides of any war, as wars provided them with the opportunity to fund risk free debt.
The family used their unprecedented banking system that lay across the entire Europe and created an unrivaled postal service network of secret routes. This allowed them to acquire vital information before it would become public and maintain an upper hand on all of the current events.
Moreover, due to their influence, their couriers were the only people allowed to bypass the English and French blockades with ease.
This allowed Nathan Mayer to be informed of the state of the war before anyone and used this information to amass unprecedented wealth in the Stock Exchange.
For example, Nathan was aware of the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo a full day before Wellington himself.
Disinformation and Market Manipulation
At that time, the British bonds were referred to as consuls, which were traded on the floor of the stock exchange. Nathan being aware of the outcome of the war started selling the consuls.
The selling on the market was taken as a sign of the British losing the battle, resulting in widespread panic in the markets and a huge panic sell off was initiated.
Nathan, after initiating the selloff, started discretely accumulating the consuls. By the time, word came of the British victory, the market rose up even higher than its previous levels, leaving Nathan with a return of approximately 20:1 on his investment.
Following Napoleon’s defeat, the Rothschild family had acquired complete control over the British economy, the financial center at that time and forced the government to establish a new Bank of England, which Nathan controlled.
In 1815, Nathan Mayer made the following statement:
“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”
He went on to brag that in the meager seventeen years he spent in England, he multiplied the £20,000 capital given to him by his father, by around 2,500 times to around £50 million
The Age of the Rothschild Modern Banking System
The Rothschild family used their influence over the Bank of England to replace the previous system of shipping physical gold and introduced the system of derivative or paper debts and credits — that’s how the banking system that we know today was born.
By the end of the 19th century, the period known as the, “Age of the Rothschild,” the family controlled around half of the world’s wealth.
Concert of Europe
The “Concert of Europe,” the name given to the series of international meetings conducted through the Congress of Vienna, was established in the year 1814 and was to serve as a tool for the Rothschild to exert complete control over the civilized world.
Since a majority of the European powers were in debt to the Rothschild, the congress was a way to leverage the debt to influence international politics. However, the Russians had yet to succumb to the Rothschild’s will and this thwarted their plan.
Enraged, Nathan Mayer swore that either he or his descendants would destroy the Tsar Alexander’s family, which proved to be true when around a century later, Rothschild funded the Bolsheviks movement, which indeed acted upon the promise.
Power and Wealth: The Timeline of the Rothschild Family (1840s – 1860s)
In the late 1840s, James Mayer used his influence to win the contract for the first major railway line in France.
It was named the Chemin Defer Du Nord, which was later connected with the Austrian rail network, built by Solomon Mayer. The family’s involvement in the Europe transport network increased their power substantially, controlling the money, precious metals, and the transport of the entire continent.
In 1847, Nathan’s son, Lionel Rothschild, was elected to the parliamentary seat from the city of London. At that time, there was a requirement for every parliamentarian to take an oath as a Christian, which was refused by Lionel.
Interestingly, he was not disqualified instead the parliamentary seat remained vacant for eleven years until new oaths were introduced, allowing people of different faiths to take up elective position in the government.
For eleven years, the constituents who voted for Lionel didn’t have representation in the parliament, talk about power!
In 1849, Guttle Schnapper, wife of Mayer Amschel died. Before her death, she allegedly said:
“If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.”
By 1852, N.M. Rothschild & Sons had begun refining gold and silver for their banking network and other customers around the world.
A year later, Nathaniel Rothschild, Nathan’s son, made the family’s first investment in the wine industry when he acquired the Château Brane Mouton and renamed it the Chateau Mouton Rothschild.
In 1858, Lionel Rothschild becomes the first Jew to become a member of the British parliament.
The North American Struggle against the Rothschilds
Three years later, in 1861, the United States was embroiled in a civil war and the funds were needed to fight the southern states.
Since, President Jackson had expelled Rothschild controlled central bank, their influence remained in the form of splintered private banks throughout the country.
When President Lincoln approached the banks for a loan, he was offered the money on outrageously large interest rates, which would have meant the country being in the debt of the Rothschilds for decades.
As a result, President Lincoln introduced the country’s first paper currency, the greenback, which was not backed by anything but the US government’s credibility.
This allowed Lincoln to fund the Civil War, abolish slavery, infuse much needed funds without increasing debt and most importantly, revolutionized the US economy, all the while resisting the Rothschilds.
In the same year, The Times of London published a story regarding the US initiative. According to the story, the North American Republic employed a clever financial policy, which allowed them to furnish their own money without incurring a cost.
The policy allowed them to mint new money without acquiring any debts; instead, it could be used to pay off all of its current debts, threatening the current world order.
Unless they are impeded, they will become prosperous beyond precedent. Hence, this nonconforming government must be eradicated or it will bring about the destruction of every monarchy on the globe.
In 1863, the only other government to resist the influence of the Rothschilds, the Russian Empire ruled by the Tsar of Russia, stated that if any of the European powers actively intervened in the American Civil War, Russia would respond by declaring war and would side with the new republic.
The assertion by the Tsar was substantiated when part of the pacific Russian fleet was sent to New York and San Francisco, deterring Rothschilds from meddling in the US affairs.
Despite the defeat at the hands of President Lincoln, John D. Rockefeller, an ally to the Rothschild, went on to establish Standard Oil, a fully integrated oil company, eventually becoming the largest oil refiner in the world.
During 1865, President Lincoln gave the following statement to the congress:
“I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me, and the financial institutions in the rear. Of the two, the one in my rear is my greatest foe.”
He was assassinated at the order of the Rothschilds in the same year and the lone assassin myth was born.
This modus operandi was employed ever since by the Rothschilds to eliminate those who opposed them.
Jacob Schiff, another Rothschild, was sent to the US after getting trained at the London Bank to increase the family’s influence in the US. His primary objective was to establish a banking branch of the Rothschild banking dynasty and ultimately seize control of the US money supply.
Secondary objectives are said to include seeking out professionals willing to further the agendas of the Illuminati and placing them into influential positions in the federal government, Supreme Court, Congress and all other important federal agencies.
Creating disorder in the country by inciting conflicts between the minority groups in the country such as the African American communities. And lastly, creating a movement against the main religion in the country, i.e. Christianity.
In 1868, James Mayer Rothschild died, making him the last of Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s sons to depart, leaving an entire continent at the whims of one family, while their influencing constantly grew throughout the world.
To be continued. In the meanwhile, please see the complete list of US Presidents murdered by the Rothschild Banking Cartel for trying to shut down the Federal Reserve.
