MAYER AMSCHEL ROTHSCHILD, 1-1790-1812. Mayer Amschel was born in 1743 and died Sept. 29, 1812. He married Gutter Schnaper in 1770. They had a large family consisting of five sons and five daughters. He was educated as a rabbi and in his early life was both a rabbi and a junk and coin dealer. He became a money lender and in that connection acted as agent for William IX, Landgrave of Hesse-Cassel. There is much obscurity in the history of the Rothschild family, due to the fact that their operations are always secret and the historians are either Semitic or anti-Semitic, the majority
being Semitic. The conclusions here presented are based
principally on Jewish or pro-Jewish history. I shall quote liberally
from the Jewish Encyclopedia because it was, as stated
in its preface, "prepared by more than 400 scholars and specialists"
all of whom were Jews.* It was published in 1905 and
re-published in 1909. While it is a partisan history, it is on the
whole, accurate in its statements of fact-it at least presents
the Jew version of the facts.
The authority mentioned says:
"In a latter connection (money lender) he became an agent
of William IX, Landgrave cf Hesse-Cassel, who on his father's
death in 1785 had inherited the largest private fortune in
Europe (estimated at $40,000,000) derived mainly from the
hire of troops to the British government for the putting down
of the revolution in the United States . . . After the battle
qf June in 1806 the Landgrave fled to Denmark, leaving 600,000
pounds (about $3,000,000) with Mayer Rothschild for safe
It states further:
"According to legend this money was hidden away in wine
casks and escaping the search of Napoleon's soldiers when they
entered Frankfort, was restored intact in the same casks in
1814 when the elector returned to the electorate. The facts are
somewhat less romantic and more business-like."
*Jewish Ency. Vol. X, p. 499 et seq.
The facts are entirely "less romantic and more businesslike,"
(from the Jewish standpoint). Mayer Amschel Rothschild
embezzled the money. This money was tainted from its
very origin. It was paid by the British government to the Landgrave
for the services of his soldiers, used to suppress the American
revolution, and the soldiers were morally entitled to it. It
was first embezzled by William of Hesse and then by Mayer
This twice-stolen money is the foundation of the huge
Rothschild fortune. It has ever since been true to its origin.
There is not an honestly acquired dollar in the hundreds of billions
now possessed by the Rothschild family.
Instead of putting the money in wine casks, Mayer Rothschild
sent the entire sum, with his son Nathan, to London, and
then and there established the London branch of the family.
"Nathan . . . invested it in 800,000,000 pounds of gold
from the East India Company, knowing that it would be needed
for Wellington's peninsula campaign. He made no less than
four profits: (1) on the sale of Wellington's paper (which he
bought at 50c on the dollar and collected at par); (2) on the
sale of gold to Wellington; (3) on its re-purchase; and (4)
on forwarding it to Portugal. This was the beginning of the
great fortune." (p. 494).
This was indeed much "less romantic and more businesslike."
With this vast sum of money, branches of the House of
Rothschild were established in Berlin, Paris, Vienna and Naples,
with one of the brothers in charge of each of them. AH of
these houses were exceedingly prosperous, particularly the London
and Paris branches.
The founder of this huge fortune, Mayer Amschel Rothschild,
established four fundamental principles for its government,
which the sons and their descendents have observed, viz:
(1) The eldest son of the eldest son to be the head and
ruler of the fortune. He became the head by virtue of his seniority
unless the majority of the members of the family decided
otherwise. There have been only two exceptions to this rule so
far as revealed by history, and that was the appointment of Nathan,
the third son of Mayer Amschel, as its head, and later the
appointment of James the fifth son. By reason of his achievements
Nathan was appointed the head of the fortune upon Mayer
Amschel's death in 1812.
(2) The inter-marriage of cousins. This was for the pur
pose of preserving the family fortune intact and in the family.
This rule has not been strictly observed, particularly by the
female members of the family, due no doubt partially to rebellion
on the part of some members of the family and partially
to the fact that other Jews have become very rich and by reason
of marriage the family fortune has been enhanced rather
"The number of marriages between cousins in the late history
of the family is remarkable . . . Of 58 marriages, 29,
or exactly one-half, have been between first cousins. It is noteworthy
that these marriages have been fertile and that most
of the children have been girls, which is what is anticipated
by biological science."
(3) The unity of the family fortune and its concealment.
No copy of Mayer Amschel's will has been published by any of
the historians of the family. All that we are permitted to know
about it is what the historians say of it, by the record of the
family and by the reference to it in the will of one of his grandsons,
Anselm, of Vienna. It contains the following provision:
"In accordance with the exhortations of my father, the
grandfather who so sincerely loved them (Anselm's children),
as contained in Clause 15 of his will, may they and their descendants
remain constantly true to their ancestral Jewish
"I forbid them most explicitly, in any circumstances
whatever, to have any public inventory made by the courts,
or otherwise, of my estate . . . Also I forbid any legal action,
and any publication of the value of the inheritance . . . Anyone
who disregards these provisions and takes any kind of action
which conflicts with them shall immediately be regarded
as having disputed the will, and shall suffer the penalties for
(4) A perpetual family partnership. At the time of Mayer
Amschel's death, his entire estate was in the form of a partnership
composed of himself and his five sons, each having an equal
interest, under the firm name of M. A. Rothschild & Sons. Both
the partnership agreement and Mayer Amschel's will provided
that the partners and their male descendants should forever
constitute the firm and manage it. The will provided also that
the female members of the family and their heirs and husbands
should have no part in the management of the firm and that they
should receive their interest in the estate subject to the management
of the male members; and that if any of them should con-

test this arrangement that they would lose their interest in the
Later, Nathan organized the London firm of N. M. Rothschild
& Sons on the same plan. This firm was probably owned
in equal proportions by him and his brothers and governed in
the same manner as the parent partnership.
Originally the partnership agreement provided that no important
decision should be made without the approval of all the
partners. As the fortune grew in magnitude it became impractical
to hold partners conferences upon its numerous undertakings.
It is probable that Nathan's firm was organized in part
to meet that situation and for the purpose of separating the
activities of the London house from those of the continental
It was probably Mayer Amschel's purpose in the beginning
to establish a Jewish dynasty with his male descendants as
rulers. Whether that was his purpose or not, it was the effect
of his will. He established the kingdom of the Jews that has
since been governed by his male descendants. Wherever a Jew
is located, whatever nationality he may claim, he is a subject of
this kingdom; his allegiance and duty to it supersedes his allegiance
and duty to the country in which he dwells.
If a conflict develops between the government of his adopted
country and his racial government, the Jew will always be found
on the side of his race. He may not know the personnel of his
racial government, its decisions may be unwritten, but they will
reach him in some form, through his rabbis and through secret
societies, and he is always obedient to them. That fact furnishes
the explanation of all this Jewish war propaganda which is supported
blindly and without dissent by all Jews.
At the time of Mayer Amschel's death he was by far the
richest man in the world or that had ever lived. The magnitude
of his fortune at that time is unknown. It was growing by leaps
and bounds at such a rapid rate that it probably could not be
estimated. He knew the power of money and the wisdom of
secrecy. He believed with religious fervor that the Jews were
the "chosen people" and that God had promised them that they
should rule the world.
We cannot know whether at that time he had in contemplation
a Jewish world empire. Apparently this was a later
development. There is good reason to believe that this ambitious
enterprise was initiated by Theodore Herzl a short time before
the publication of the protocols in 1905. Herzl was an active, ambitious
Jewish rabbi-politician and an intense hater of the Gentiles.
He was given credit for organizing modern Zionism at a
conference of the leaders of the Hebrew race in Basle, Switzerland,
in 1897. It is thought that at that time and at that meeting
some of the protocols were adopted as precepts for the establishment
of the contemplated Jewish empire.
Herzl probably organized two important Jewish organizations:
(1) a secret super-organization to be composed of 300
men whose identity should be kept secret and who would constitute
the super-government for the Jewish race; (2) a popular
religious organization to be composed of 450 delegates selected
by the rabbis and the Hebrew churches.
At that time the Rothschild estate had grown to enormous
proportions but the family had grown soft with luxury and had
deteriorated by inbreeding. Moreover the fortune at that time
had already effected the emancipation of the Jews and established
the Rothschild kingdom. Apparently it then had the
power under efficient management to establish a Jewish empire.
Apparently also the management of the vast political power
of the estate needed to be reinforced with outside blood. It is
likely that at that time and through Herzl's activities, the Secret
Committee of 300 was established for the management of the
political power of the huge estate with the consent of the Rothschilds.
It is known that Theodore Herzl was an intimate personal
friend of Lord Rothschild, II.
The protocols themselves, or the gist of them, appear to have
existed for a long period of time prior to their publication in
1905. In fact the intent and purpose of them are in substance
contained in the Talmud. They were also in substance stated
in 1869 in the Funeral Oration of Rabbi Reichhorn (set out in
Appendix II). They evince a clear conception of the weakness
of Gentile governments and institutions, and the best method
to attack and destroy them. They set out the most effective
method of establishing a dictatorship of the proletariat, which is
the first step toward world empire.
The protocols themselves describe in great detail the powers
of the King-Despot of their proposed empire, and the objectives
of such empire. Stated briefly they are the absorption of the
wealth of the Gentiles and their slavery, both politically and
economically. They have already accomplished the debt slavery
of the goyim; their present objective is his political slavery.
