A Rothschild Documentary
The Rothschild story remains an amazing achievement, climbing to top of world financial hegemony to reside as a nearly invisible cabal of global puppet masters. A You Tube video, “The Truth Behind The Rothschild Family: The World’s Only Trillionaires,” provides overview of family history spanning over two centuries. It’s an achievement that defies human frailty. Hub pages article, “Mayer Amschel Bauer changed his name from Bauer to Rothschild and became the founding father of International Finance,” describes humble beginnings of an international finance colossus: “In 1743 a goldsmith named Amschel Moses Bauer opened a coin shop in Frankfurt, Germany. He hung above his door a sign depicting a Roman eagle on a red shield. The shop became known as the Red Shield firm. The German word for ‘red shield’ is Rothschild.”
“Amschel Bauer had a son, Mayer Amschel Bauer. At a very early age Mayer showed that he possessed immense intellectual ability, and his father spent much of his time teaching him everything he could about the money lending business and in the basic dynamics of finance.”
“Meyer Amschel Bauer changed his name from Bauer to Rothschild (”Red Shield”) and added five golden arrows held in the eagle’s talons, signifying his five sons who operated the five banking houses of the international House of Rothschild: Frankfurt, London, Paris, Vienna, and Naples.” The doc takes you through entire span of Rothschild story from 18th Century to the present. A highlight of the story, “Rothschild and the Battle Of Waterloo: Napoleon vs the Duke of Wellington,” makes a fascinating read.
