Are you still Chirping? lol After I educated you on your own history?
Since it seems you thirst for more knowledge I'll tell you.
The richest man in the Holy Roman Empire Wilhelm IX
, had a court factor(Sometimes called a court Jew) called Rothschild!!!
Now apparently it seems the Jews were still heavily in the banking system in the Holy Roman Empire. They used to do business with nobles and the Catholic Church.......
In the early modern period
, a court Jew
, or court factor
: Hofjude, Hoffaktor
: הויף איד, romanized
: Hoyf Id
, קאַורט פאַקטאַר, Kourt Faktor
), was a Jewish banker
who handled the finances of, or lent money to, European
, mainly German, royalty and nobility. In return for their services, court Jews gained social privileges, including, in some cases, being granted noble status
Examples of what would be later called court Jews emerged in the High Middle Ages
when the royalty, the nobility, and the church borrowed money from money changers
or employed them as financiers.
Now we dont know how Rothschild made his fortune. Most likely investing other people's money and making a large cut.
Anyways, eventually the Rothchilds became powerful. Was it all their own money or was it all the depositors money they looked after?
When they moved their operations to London, THAT's how England was able to bank role their empire.
