Rothschild Family

The Rothschild family owns castles, banks, vineyards, hospitals, and more. They laid the foundations for their immense fortune in the 18th century when Jews were restricted to a few professions, such as finance. Their remarkable ascent from the Frankfurt ghetto to becoming the leading banking network and the most significant financier of European states in the 19th century made them the target of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories: The Rothschild family is supposed to pull the strings and steer world events. With their money, they would decide on war and peace. Allegations ranged from their involvement in financing the Holocaust to the belief in the alleged omnipotence of Jews over the global financial system, suggesting that the Rothschilds still control banks today. However, there is no conclusive evidence supporting these claims.
