The current wealth of the Rothschilds in 2022 is estimated at about 400 billion dollars for the whole family.

The Rothschilds are a wealthy family whose origin is from Frankfurt, Germany. The patriarch of the family was Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812) in Frankfurt. He established his banking business in the 1860s. Rothschild left his fortune to found an international banking family through his five sons. They established companies in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Vienna and Naples. The history of this family began in Frankfurt in the 16th century. Its name is taken from the house of the Rothschilds, founded in 1567 by Isaac Elchanan Bacharach.

The Rothschilds had the largest private fortune in the history of the modern world in the nineteenth century. Total combined family net worth declined during the 20th century as it was divided into multiple descendants who were heirs. Their interests currently cover diverse business sectors, including financial services, real estate, mining, energy, agriculture, winemaking, and non-profit organizations.

The 19th century companies founded with Rothschild family capital include:

  • Alliance Assurance (1824) (now Royal & Sun Alliance)
  • Northern Railway (1845)
  • The Rio Tinto Mining Company (1873) (from the 1880s onwards, the Rothschilds were in complete control of Rio Tinto)
  • Eramit (1880)
  • Imerys (1880)
  • De Beers (1888)
  • Cecil Rhodes’ family funded the establishment of the African colony of Rhodesia. [1]

There are a number of notable Rothschilds today including billionaire and environmentalist David Mayer de Rothschild. Also Hannah Marie Rothschild, documentary filmmaker. Nathaniel Philip Rothschild is the co-chair of Atticus Capital, a $20 billion hedge fund. Another famous person from the wealthy family, James Rothschild, married Nicky Hilton in 2015. [2]
