Continued from the House of Rothschild article.
In 1818 the second Tugundbund was revived as the Burschenschaft (Association of Boys or Fellows). The Burschenschaft was a revolutionary group of students who introduced martial exercises into the universities. The Burschenschaft eventually fell apart. After a few years the exiled Landgrave came to totally trust the Rothschilds. Prince William got more and more accustomed to following Mayer Rothschild’s advice and scarcely took any important financial step without consulting him. This ‘Princely’ stepping-stone was working out perfectly.
It was paving the way towards Rothschild financial freedom. Mayer wanted to become a creditor and his goal was soon achieved. In 1810 the Rothschild’s firm became ‘Mayer Amschel Rothschild and Sons’ (Nathan was not a public partner of this firm).
That same year Mayer loaned his own money to Denmark and when Dalberg took out a big loan to go to the baptism of Napoleon’s son, the financial security of the Frankfurt bank was set in stone. The House of Rothschild needed a new stepping-stone. The old one, the Landgrave, would not be discarded, but they needed a younger, more political man who could be their key to controlling Europe.
That man was Prince Clemens Metternich who in 1809 became the Austrian Minister for Foreign Affairs. He became the leading opposer of Napoleon and the Landgrave moved in his exile to Austria, hoping the powerful upstart would get Hesse back. So the Rothschild network increased its operations in Austria – the land of the Hapsburgs. Around this time Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild got sick. Before his death he wrote a Will that would dictate the structure of the Rothschilds.
Although the exact contents of Mayer’s will have been kept secret, one edict is clear. It completely excluded the daughters, their husbands and heirs from the business, and all knowledge of it. The will totally exalted the importance of the family circle.
On Sept. 19, 1812 Mayer died. A bogus legend about his death maintains that his five sons gathered around his deathbed and he split Europe between them. Only Amschel and Carl were in Frankfurt when he died. Nathan was in England, whilst Salomon and James were on the road.
THE ‘FIVE WIZARDS’
When Mayer died, headship over the family fell on Nathan Rothschild of England. Even though Nathan was not the oldest, the 5 brothers had voted unanimously that he was the most capable to lead them. Nathan was an intelligent, uneducated, self-absorbed jerk. Though he was an impolite, foulmouthed man, his money got him into the high society of England.
There is a story that says one of Nathan’s sons asked him how many nations there were in the world and Nathan replied, “There are only two you need to bother about. There is the mishpoche (Yiddish for family) and there are the others”. This story may be false, but the attitude is real.
Nathan first settled in Manchester, England, the center of cloth manufacturing. In 1804 he moved to London. As his wealth and his reputation began to grow he was able to marry Hannah Barent Cohen. The Barent Cohens were a wealthy Jewish family from Amsterdam, and Hannah’s father, Salomon Cohen, was a respected merchant in London.
Hannah’s sister, Judith, married the powerful Jewish Freemason Moses Montefiore (the Montefiore’s were of ‘ancient’ and extremely ‘aristocratic Jewish stock’) who was friends with Nathan.
Nathan’s sister Henrietta married a Montefiore, so did his second son, Anthony, and his brother Salomon’s great grandson, Aiphonse, married a Sebag-Montefiore in 1911. Nathan’s social life revolved around the Cohens. Nathan was a Freemason.
He was a member of London’s Lodge of Emulation. Nathan’s accumulation of wealth was incredible. His money-making exploits were unbelievable. He was smuggling English goods past the French blockade during the Napoleonic conflict and making great profits.
JAMES SETS-UP IN PARIS
This smuggling required an agent in Paris, so Mayer, through his Dalberg connections, got his son James a passport and James went to live in Paris. A large amount of the Landgrave’s money was sent to Nathan in England, on the advice of Buderus, for the purpose of buying stock. But Nathan, as he and Buderus had planned, used the money as capital for other ventures.
When the exiled Landgrave began asking for a proof-of-purchase, Buderus and the Rothschild brothers had to come up with all sorts of excuses to protect Nathan’s thievery. Eventually the Landgrave demanded to see receipts, so Nathan quickly bought some stock. The Landgrave had told him to buy the stocks at 72, but their price when be ended up buying them was 62. Nathan pocketed the savings and then snuck the receipts through the French blockade.
Nathan began making connections in the British government. Probably his greatest early connection was to the Treasury official, John Herries. Herries aided Nathan’s rise to power in every way possible. He became an intimate friend of Nathan’s and eventually a proxy for Rothschild in the British government. Their dealings were kept secret and the public had no idea as to the enormity of Nathan’s power.
The most incredible example of Nathan’s devious schemes is a job he would later describe as the best business he had ever done. Through Nathan’s connections in the treasury, he learned of the plight of the English army in Spain. The Duke of Wellington (soon to become Nathan’s friend) had British troops in Spain ready to attack France, only they lacked one thing – hard cash, but the government was very short on gold at the time. Nathan knew how to profit from this situation.
The East India Company was trying to sell gold that, of course, the government wanted to buy, but the price was so high that officials decided to wait until it dropped. Nathan stepped in and bought up the gold (using some of the Landgrave’s money as well as his own). He then proceeded to raise the price. When the officials realized the price wouldn’t drop, they bought the gold and Nathan made a great profit. But the deal didn’t stop there.
Nathan offered to deliver the gold to Wellington (this was a heavy responsibility because of the French blockade). Herries went to bat and got Rothschild the job. Nathan’s plan was incredible. Nathan’s brother, James, went to Napoleon’s government and told them that Nathan would be importing gold into France and the British government was upset at the move because it would financially hurt England.
Napoleon’s government believed his lie and any French police who might have uncovered the plot were bribed. So Nathan was able to ship the gold to Paris, with the approval of both the English and French governments. In Paris, the gold was exchanged in French banking firms for cash, that Wellington could use and then the Rothschild network carried the money into Spain, as France allowed Nathan to fund the war against itself.
Eventually some French officials grew suspicious, but Napoleon ignored their reports. The plan went smoothly, even though the same officials secretly watched James Rothschild and his brother Carl (who was in on the plot). Wellington eventually defeated Napoleon at Waterloo. The Wellington smuggle was one of the greatest scams in history!
FREDERICK VON GENTZ
In order to better understand the Rothschild’s involvement in the defeat of Napoleon, we must look at the role played by the Rothschild’s second stepping-stone – Metternich. Metternich was the Austrian Minister of Foreign Affairs and he led the opposition against Napoleon. Metternich was a fierce enemy of the revolutionary fires that were spreading through Europe. The Rothschild’s got to him through a member of the first Tugendbund (the sexual one) Frederick von Gentz. Gentz was Metternich’s right-hand man.
Metternich was not financially minded and he relied on Gentz’s advice concerning economics (Gentz’s ability to handle his private finances was terrible, but he had a knack for political economy). John Herries brought Gentz and the Rothschilds together. The family proceeded to bribe the man into their service. Gentz is an interesting character. He was a Freemason so he was probably occultic. His involvement in the first Tugendbund League points to immorality. Another interesting fact is that I found most of his visits to the Rothschilds occurred on occultic holidays, such as Winter Solstice.
Gentz steadily brought Metternich into the Rothschild’s web. By at least 1814 Metternich was an ally of the House of Rothschild. His goal was to protect the power of the old aristocracy. His plan was simply to extinguish revolution and he began with Napoleon. Austria declared war on France and allied itself with Russia. England joined them, to form a powerful coalition against Napoleon. The battle of Waterloo in 1815 decided the war.
Metternich had led Europe to victory with the help of Nathan’s delivery network, which funded the overthrow. The victory made Metternich the most powerful man in Europe. Due to his speedy courier system, Nathan knew of the outcome of the Waterloo battle before the news reached any other Englander. A persistent myth is that he made the bulk of his fortune by manipulating the stock exchange with this knowledge. First of all, he did manipulate the market, but he already had a fortune. Secondly, he might not have even made a significant profit.
Two years before his defeat, Napoleon had pulled out of Germany. In 1813 the Landgrave William of Hesse-Cassel returned to his province. Earlier it had been the Rothschilds who had asked for favors, now it was the Landgrave and Buderus who tried to maintain a close connection.
In 1818 Buderus died. By 1815 Nathan controlled England’s finance. He did a large amount of direct business with the English treasury. John Herries was allowing deals that would hurt England, but fill the pockets of the House of Rothschild.
Rothschild had an incredible influence upon all financial affairs in London. It was widely stated that he entirely regulated the rate of exchange in the City. His power as a banker was enormous. When Nathan made a fuss, the Bank of England trembled. Once he tried to cash a check from his brother Amschel at the Bank, but the Bank refused saying it cashed only its own notes.
Nathan’s volcano-like temper exploded. The next morning he and nine of his clerks arrived at the Bank and began exchanging bank notes for gold. In one day he had reduced the Bank’s gold reserves by a substantial amount. The next day he and his clerks arrived with more bank notes.
A Bank executive nervously asked how long he intended to keep this up. Nathan replied something to the effect of “The Bank of England refused to take by bills, so I will not keep theirs”.
A meeting was quickly called and they decided that from then on, the Bank of England would be pleased to cash any Rothschild check. Nathan’s firm was named N.M. Rothschild and Sons. The firm met in the New Court building and was so powerful that it even became a gold broker for the Bank of England.
AMSCHEL, FRANKFURT, GERMANY
When Mayer died in 1812, his oldest son Amschel took over the Frankfurt firm. Although Amschel was not the head of the family, he was its spokesman to the aristocracy. He was the one who would apply for the honors and titles for his brothers.
He has been described as a crotchety worrier who clung to the past. He was socially odd, yet held great dinners that were the talk of the elite. Religion was a big part of his life, to the point of being called ‘monkish’. Even though he lived on a grand scale, Amschel had no joy. Much of this distress came from the fact that he had failed to have any children.
After Napoleon exited Germany, a German Confederation was set up, of which Amschel became the treasurer. In a sense this made him the first finance minister of the Prussian Empire which was created by the Confederation. Amschel’s sorrow over his lack of children led him to pick prominent young men to treat as his sons.
One such man was Otto von Bismark, who would later become the Iron Chancellor of Germany. Amschel was the protector of his mother Gutle, the Matriarch of the family. No one received full admission into the House of Rothschild by marriage, unless she approved.
SALOMAN, VIENNA, AUSTRIA
Saloman was the second oldest son of Mayer. What separated him from his brothers was his gift of diplomacy. He was more stately and complimentary than the others. Said one banker of Salomon, “Nobody leaves him without being comforted”.
It was this fact that led the brothers to send him to Vienna, Austria, to establish a relationship with the painfully aristocratic Hapsburgs and with vain Metternich. Although the Rothschilds had attempted to enter a close business relationship with the Hapsburgs, the Austrian royalty kept putting them off. Then Salomon came along.
He rode in on a wave of new found Rothschild power. Their name had become famous. Salomon began to vie for Austrian ties through Gentz and Metternich. Eventually Salomon’s diplomacy, Metternich’s lobbying and the below-cost method, earlier used on the Landgrave, broke down the wall between the House of Rothschild and the Illuminati Hapsburgs.
Austria began to employ the Rothschilds on a regular basis. Salomon moved into Vienna and bought a Hotel and a house. Salomon knew how to play Metternich like a piano. He knew Metternich’s quirks and prejudices, such as his vanity, which Salomon easily manipulated. Pretty soon Metternich and Salomon became close friends. The same goes for Metternich’s right-hand man, Gentz. Gentz and Salomon were ‘inseparable’.
It came to the point where Austria became so controlled by the Rothschilds, the government did not want to refuse the brothers anything. In 1816 Amschel, Salomon, Carl and James received a title of nobility from the Hapsburgs. In 1818 the Aix-la-Chapelle Congress met to discuss the future of Europe. Salomon, Carl, Metternich and Gentz attended this Congress.
A Rothschild scheme at this Congress totally shook the financial institutions of Europe, there was no denying the power of the Rothschilds. The divine right of kings had been overthrown by, ‘the divine right of money’. At Aix-la-Chapelle, the Rothschilds widened their circle of influence in the Illuminati.
Salomon set up a new firm in Vienna. He financially supported Metternich’s fight against revolution. Metternich had established the ‘Vienna System’ which controlled Europe after Napoleon’s defeat. The Austrian leader began doing what the elite love to do – sending ‘peacekeeping’ troops Into conflIcts. 1814- 1848 has been described as The Age of Metternich, but since the Rothschilds financed and controlled him it would be more accurate to call it ‘The Age of the House of Rothschild’.
The Order of Vladimir was conferred upon Salomon for his work with Russia. Gioacchino Rossini, the Italian opera composer, became a good friend of both Salomon and his brother James. In 1822, he, Metternich, Gentz, James, and Carl attended the Verona Congress.
This Congress was totally manipulated by the Rothschilds. They profited Immensely by its outcome. Salomon financed the first important Central European railways. The Austrians began saying that they had an Emperor Ferdinand and a King Salomon. When it came to Austrian finances Salomon got the last word.
The people would show up at his office and beg for a royal ‘laying on of hands’. He only had to touch a bond or a stock, and its owner went away certain of its rise. Like the other Rothschilds he gave immense charity donations. He bought the huge coal and iron works of Vitkovitz.
In 1843 he received permission to purchase inheritable agricultural real estate (many people were against Jews buying private property) and he proceeded to buy up large amounts of land. He obtained the lease of Austria’s mercury mines. This and the only other mercury deposit in Spain were controlled by the Rothschilds, creating a world monopoly on the key metal.
CARL, NAPLES, ITALY
The next son, Carl was the family’s chief courier. He was the least intelligent of all the brothers. He was awkward when he spoke and had a nasty temper. In 1821, Carl was sent to Naples, Italy, to oversee loans there that were meant to finance Metternich’s forces who had arrived to quell a rebellion.
While in Italy the Rothschild ‘mantle’ came upon Carl and he made a series of ingenious deals with the Italian government, that forced Naples to pay for its own occupation. He also helped Luigi de Medici of the Black Nobility to re-gain his position as finance minister of Naples and later did business with the powerful man.
Due to his success, it was decided that he would stay in Naples and set up his own bank. He became financier to the court, the ‘financial overlord of Italy’. Carl wound the Italian peninsula around his hand. He did business with the Vatican and when Pope Gregory XVI received him by giving him his hand, rather than the customary toe to kiss, people realized the extent of his power.
The Pope conferred upon him the Order of St. George. It appears that in Italy, Carl became a leader of Carbonarism. After the Bavarian IllumInati was exposed, Carbonarism (or the Alta Vendita) became the major European occult power. Carl’s leadership in this group is very significant.
In 1818 a secret Alta Vendita document, that Carl had participated in preparing, was sent to the headquarters of Masonry. A copy of this document was lost and the Masons got very upset and offered rewards for the return of this copy. The title of the document translates ‘Permanent Instructions, or Practical Code of Rules; Guide for the Heads of the Highest Grades of Freemasonry’.
JAMES, PARIS, FRANCE
Last, but absolutely not least, was the youngest son, James. During the Napoleonic conflict James had spent his time between London and Paris, supporting the Rothschild’s network of illegal trade with England. After the Wellington smuggle and the defeat of Napoleon, James became an established figure in France. He founded a bank there and began the French branch of the Rothschild family.
James was a 33 degree Scottish Rite Mason. At this time the French House was the center of operations for the Rothschilds. Even though successive revolutions would de-throne ruler after ruler, Rothschild power kept the family in control. James was good friends with the leading minister of the Bourbon court, Count de Villele, and he ‘owned’ King Louis Philippe.
He also secretly funded Spanish revolutionaries (his agent in Madrid was Monsieur Belin). James yearned for social status. The pursuit of which was second only to money. He had grown so powerful that the French exchange was deeply affected by all his decisions. Like his brother, Salomon, he pioneered the railroad business in France. He also bought the great Lafite vineyards.
His bank, de Rothschild Freres, was in a league its own. No one in France could even wish to be as powerful as James. As Salomon had, James received the Order of Vladimir for his work with the Russian dynasty.
In the Rothschild tradition (as constituted by Mayer’s Will) of trying to keep everything within the family, James married his niece, Betty Rothschild, the daughter of Salomon.
INCREDIBLE COURIER SYSTEM
The Rothschilds main advantage was their incredible courier system. It kept the 5 Houses connected. In fact, the Hapsburgs used this system quite often. All evidence points to the Rothschild brothers being very powerful within Freemasonry. They were one of the leading families in occultism at that time in Europe.
Many prominent Masons of their day praised the brothers. In 1820, due to Metternich’s lobbying, Nathan was made Austrian consul in London and two years later he was made consul-general. James was also made an Austrian consul in Paris.
Metternich’s promptings also provided something else very important to the family, in 1822 all the brothers and their descendants of either sex were made Barons. This established social position for the Rothschilds. The Gentz-Metternich team was very beneficial to the House of Rothschild.
By this time a few papers had run some upsetting articles about the family. Salomon asked Gentz to censure any more unkind reports and he also commissioned the Illuminist to write a bogus biography on the family that would portray them in a good light.
Gentz, now called the ‘Pen of Europe’, proceeded to write legends for the Rothschilds and the family fully encouraged the propaganda in their social circles.
The brothers had a system (based on Mayer’s Will) where only family members were partners or owners of the banks. This system is still in use today. The Rothschild banks bought everything up, from mining corporations to national debts. For instance, New Court has been controlling Brazil’s debts since 1824.
