In the early 1760s, Mayer Rothschild began building a banking dynasty that would last for centuries.
The elder Rothschild sent his five sons across Europe to establish banks in cities like Paris and London.
One son, Nathan Rothschild, took the lead and expanded the family’s banking dynasty.
With siblings in different countries, the family now had a trusted network of lenders with whom they could finance large government projects like infrastructure and war.
