A family of European financiers and bankers active since the eighteenth century. The Rothschilds had spectacular success in governmental finance in the nineteenth century, supporting, for example, the British against the French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. The family is spread through several nations to this day.
But Gaddafi's veneer of softening, painted mostly through his son, Saif, friend to the rothschilds and Benjamin Barber, failed.
The Rockefellers and rothschilds have nothing on the new money elite in China, Singapore, and elsewhere in Asia.
It would be as absurd to accuse me of anti-Semitism for alluding to the fact that the rothschilds or Warburgs were Jews.
