ROTHSCHILDS: PAPAL & ROYAL KNIGHTS

ROTHSCHILDS: PAPAL & ROYAL KNIGHTS

For those who doubt the balance of power between the Rothschilds, British Royalty & the Papacy, I have compiled the following collection of information showing verifiable Papal & Royal knighthoods bestowed on the Rothschilds. These do not include any deduced or hearsay knighthoods. Note that in the Grand scheme of things these knighthoods are not even from the most elite of such orders, e.g. the Garter or the Bath to name but two.

I would draw your attention to the two following articles which reveal many of the covert connections in European (& thus international) finance, politics, military & intelligence. These give a taste of the extent of influence of Catholic & Papal-loyal elites, including knighthood orders such as the SMOM (Knights of Malta) & Franco-Neapolitan branch of the Constantinian Order. The Venetian & Genoese aristocracy & their so called Black Nobility descendants are given some context here too:

http://www.isgp.eu/organisations/Le_Cercle.htm

There are other good sources that touch on the Vatican’s wealth, including David Yallop’s “In God’s Name” (which is by no means an anti-Catholic polemic).

How anyone can think that the Rothschilds are the pinnacle of power is beyond me. Very powerful? Yes. The mind behind the all-seeing eye? No way. We have to look much deeper beyond these Kabbalistically-minded businessmen. While not wishing to diminish the truth about their influence, we must keep things in perspective.

Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, former head of the now British Rothschild banking interests (now united with the French Rothschild banking interests & overseen since 2003 by David René de Rothschild) being interviewed on intelligence-controlled television & his son David Mayer de Rothschild on the Alex Jones radio show? Hilarious.

Evelyn de Rothschild US & UK TV interviews, late 2008:

http://www.disclose.tv/action/viewvideo/10035/EVELYN_DE_ROTHSCHILD_THE_ILLUMINATI_LEADER/

Watch the end of the latter one for some humour. The English interviewer was most pleased with his encounter!

David Mayer de Rothschild interviewed by Alex “CIA asset, Jesuit Coadjutor” Jones on the matter of Live Earth concert, which event took place on the Kabbalistically-significant 7/7/07:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4891699310483983031

The Jesuit Superior-General Adolfo Nicolas, Pope Benedict XVI, SMOM Grand Master Matthew Festing, Constantinian Grand Masters the Duke of Castro & Duke of Calabria, Queen Elizabeth II: would any of them lower themselves in this manner? No chance. Most people have only heard about the Pope & the Queen out of that lot. They make fork-tongued speeches for the Profane to accept on face value.

Evelyn de Rothschild was invested as a Knight in 1989, though not of any Order that I have been able to find. This would mean that he is a Knight Bachelor. Some conspiracy sites state that he is a Knight of the British Empire, however I have only been able to confirm that his dynastic cousin Lord Jacob is a knight of that order:

http://www.thepeerage.com/p19559.htm#i195583
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knight_Bachelor

Lord Jacob (the 4th Baron) Rothschild was made a Member of the Queen’s Order of Merit (personally selected & bestowed by the Monarch, this is directly below the rank of Knight Grand Commander of the Order of the Bath in terms of honour) in 2002 & Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire in 1998. Note that his title of Baron Rothschild is a UK title going back to 1885. He is also – & perhaps confusingly – the 5th Baronet Rothschild, a UK title going back to 1847 & the current Baron von Rothschild, an Austrian Empire title dating back to 1822. We should also note that in 1985 he was made a Commander of the Order of Henry the Navigator of Portugal:

http://www.thepeerage.com/p5338.htm#i53379

His father Lord Victor (the 3rd Baron) Rothschild was made a Knight Grand Cross of the British Empire in 1975 & was also a Knight of the Queen’s Order of St John:

See: http://www.thepeerage.com/p7108.htm#i71075

The Queen, as Sovereign of the Order of St John (& of the Order of Sts Michael & George, which just recently bestowed an Honorary Knighthood on Jesuit/Vatican asset & Freemason Shimon Peres) is the head of a franchise of the Pope’s Order of Malta, the SMOM. Thus she is a Dame of Malta. As the Rothschilds defer to Queen, so do they both defer to the Papacy & ultimately to the Jesuit General.

For good databases of Sir Evelyn & Lord Jacob’s (& Lord Victor’s) New World Order-related connections, see:

http://isgp.eu/organisations/introduction/PEHI_Jacob_de_Rothschild_bio.htm
http://www.isgp.eu/organisations/introduction/PEHI_Evelyn_de_Rothschild_bio.htm

There is also a bio for the French Baron Edmond de Rothschild there:

http://isgp.eu/organisations/introduction/Wik_Baron_Edmond_de_Rothschild.htm

The current Lord Rothschild’s son, Nat, has no such honours & nor does his cousin David Mayer de Rothschild, nor does the united French & British Rothschilds banking head David René de Rothschild. And nor have any of their other respective paternal ancestors other than those listed above, as far as my research has turned up:

http://www.thepeerage.com/p5341.htm#i53407
http://www.thepeerage.com/p19566.htm#i195653

http://www.thepeerage.com/p19539.htm#i195386

Note that the Great Great Great Great (yes, that’s four Greats!) Grandfather of Lord Jacob Rothschild & the Great Great Great Grandfather of Sir Evelyn & David René de Rothschild – Mayer Amschel Rothschild, the founder of the Rothschild international banking dynasty, was made an Imperial (Holy Roman Empire) Crown Agent in 1800:

http://www.thepeerage.com/p19531.htm#i195307

Evelyn de Rothschild’s Grandfather Leopold de Rothschild was invested as a Commander, Royal Victorian Order (C.V.O.) in 1902. Leopold’s brother Sir Nathan Mayer Rothschild, the Great Grandfather of Lord Jacob Rothschild, was invested as a Knight Grand Cross, Royal Victorian Order (G.C.V.O.), also in 1902. Leopold & Nathan Mayer’s parents were Baron Lionel Nathan de Rothschild and Charlotte de Rothschild. Baron Lionel Nathan de Rothschild was senior partner of NM Rothschild and Sons in 1836.

http://www.thepeerage.com/p19553.htm#i195528
http://www.thepeerage.com/p7037.htm#i70366
http://www.thepeerage.com/p19553.htm#i195523

Lionel Nathan’s father was – confusingly – another Nathan Mayer & the son of Mayer Amschel. This Nathan Mayer was the ancestor of both Sir Evelyn & Lord Jacob. His brother (another of the original (in)famous five sons of Mayer Amschel) Jame Mayer was the ancestor of David René de Rothschild.

I will note here that at the bottom of this focus on the Rothschilds I have selected some career & business-related information from Wikipedia to get some up-to-date, mainstream information on the prominent Rothschilds to use as a quick comparison of one family member with another & for comparing with more conspiracy-orientated material.

Now for some bankers information more directly related to the American side of things, note that US financial magnate JP Morgan (who escaped death by not going on the Titanic that he was booked to travel on) died appropriately enough in Rome & was a Knight of the Papal-loyal House of Savoy’s Order of Sts Maurice & Lazarus:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J.P._Morgan
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_Saints_Maurice_and_Lazarus

And of course, from 1918 JP Morgan, Jr’s lawyer & frontman Elihu Root headed the club that became the Council on Foreign Relations in 1921, which Root was a leading member of & it is of course no surprise that JP Morgan’s Chief Counsel was the first CFR President:

EXCERPTS FROM “DOES THE VATICAN HOLD YOUR MORTGAGE?”

Excerpts from “Does the Vatican Hold Your Mortgage?” by William Thomas:

http://www.willthomasonline.net/willthomasonline/Vatican_Mortgage_Part_1.html

The Fed gets its orders from the Queen Mum of All Banks, the Bank of England – aka, the Bank of Rothschild. Considered by many to be the world’s most powerful institution – the power behind all presidencies, dictatorships and thrones – does the Bank of England answer to any other bank?

Well, yes, actually.

The Bank of Rome began opening branch offices in Venice in 1587.

Bank of Rome = Vatican Bank controlled by the Jesuit General, aka the “Black” (hidden, shadowy) Pope.

The Jesuit’s Bank of Rome opened its Bank of England branch in 1694. The first bank to be named after a country, the Bank of England had nothing to do with the British government – except to own it through privately held, interest-compounded debt.

Unaccountable to either the Queen or Parliament, the misleadingly labeled “Bank of England” finances the throne, the British prime minister, parliament and much of the planet out of “The City” located in central London. All major British banks have their main offices in this “Square Mile” – as well as 70 U.S. banks. Throw in the London Stock Exchange, Lloyd’s of London, the Baltic Exchange (shipping), Fleet Street (publishing and newspapers), the London Commodity and Metal exchanges – and you are looking at Earth’s financial axis. [Descent into Slavery]

The City operates as a sovereign state, just like the Vatican. Since 1820, the Rothschilds have traditionally chosen The City’s Lord Mayor.

Back in the USA, as author Eric Phelps explained in an interview just before publication of his secrecy-shredding Vatican Assassins, (which was held up to include corrections by sympathetic Jesuits) – the Vatican’s Black Robes “own and control” the Federal Reserve Bank “by proxy, through the Knights of Malta, with their various trusts and so on. They never own anything outright; they always own it through a trusted third party.”

“All roads do lead to Rome … We have the Federal Reserve begat by the Bank of England begat by the Bank of Rome. Similarly, the Bank of Canada is an offspring of the Bank of England, which in turn is a child of the Bank of Rome – aka, the Vatican Bank.

And the Vatican, as everyone “knows” is run by the CNN-featured “White” Pope. Left untranslated is the coronation moment when the new Pontiff is told in Latin: “Take thou the tiara adorned with the triple crown, and know that thou art the father of princes and kings, and art the governor of the world.” [Vatican Assassins]

According to Baron Avro Manhattan, author of a jaw-dropping series of Vatican books, “Many historians and researchers and one American Congressman stated that: ‘The Vatican through the Jesuit Order controlling the Illuminati is in control of the United States Federal Reserve.’” [Vatican Billions by Avro Manhattan]

http://www.willthomasonline.net/willthomasonline/Vatican_Mortgage_Part_2.html

“It is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff.” -Pope Boniface, Unam Sanctam (1302)

… we’re beginning to see how more than 150 years ago, the General of a subversive military power called the Jesuits could brag to Duke de Brissac, “From this room, your grace, I govern not only Paris, but China – not only China, but the whole world – and all without any one knowing how it is done.” [Constitution of the Jesuits 1843]

National and personal sovereignty haven’t improved much since. As Baron Avro Manhattan put it, the Pope “doesn’t have to pray for divine intervention to operate the levers of economic power – he merely has to give instructions to his officials in the Vatican Bank. Only the pope and a couple of top bank officers know precise details of its operations… This secrecy is one of the main reasons why few people know that the papacy directs one of the world’s major financial corporations.”

The Vatican likes to point out that it’s going broke running Vatican City. But Cardinal Edmund Szoka, the Vatican’s unofficial finance minister, told Money Week that the Vatican’s assets total some $5 billion. Vatican City “has a separate financial statement,” he added.

According to Baron Manhattan’s research: “The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others. The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines, T.W.A., etc. ”

A nationally syndicated Catholic priest has stated, “The Catholic Church must be the biggest corporation in the United States. We have a branch office in every neighborhood. Our assets and real estate holdings must exceed those of Standard Oil, A.T.&T., and U.S. Steel combined. And our roster of dues-paying members must be second only to the tax rolls of the United States Government.” [The Vatican Billions]

“But this is just a small portion of the wealth of the Vatican, which in the U.S. alone, is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country,” Baron Manhattan explains. “The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence.” [Vatican Billions]

Don’t forget to throw in more than 18,000 works of art. [Fortune Dec 21/87]

The Vatican’s gold treasure alone has been estimated by the United Nations World Magazine to amount to several billion dollars. The Independent has independently confirmed that “the Vatican Bank – Istituto per le Opere di Religione – manages more than $4 billion in assets. It does not reveal its profits or dividends, which are paid directly to the Pope. It enjoys the status of a central bank and has a dealing room adorned with crucifixes and papal portraits where 20 traders work .” [Independent Apr 19/02]

Suspicious decorations and obedience

Quote:
Early in the 19th century the Pope approached the Rothschilds to borrow money. The Rothschilds were very friendly with the Pope, causing one journalist to sarcastically say “Rothschild has kissed the hand of the Pope. . . Order has at last been re-established”

Focusing on the more prominent Rothschilds, here’s a selection of career-related information from Wikipedia:

Jacob Rothschild, 4th Baron Rothschild:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_Rothschild,_4th_Baron_Rothschild#Business_and_connections

“He is a shareholder in Rothschild Continuation Holdings, the Swiss-based holding company for the Rothschild interests which has positions in many of the family businesses, including the bank N M Rothschild & Sons. After resigning from the bank, Jacob Rothschild went on to found J. Rothschild Assurance Group (now St. James’s Place) with Sir Mark Weinberg in 1991. In 1989, he joined forces with Sir James Goldsmith and Kerry Packer, in an unsuccessful bid for British American Tobacco. His main business interests now are RIT Capital Partners plc, an investment trust company with net assets under management of £1700m (Aug 2008), of which he is Chairman, Spencer House Capital Management LLP founded with Richard Horlick (formerly CIO of Schroders), and Spencer House Partners, a “mini merchant bank” headed by Rothschild and Ronald Cohen of Apax Partners. He also retains many other venture capital and property interests. On 17 November 2003, he took up his post as deputy chairman of BSkyB. From his headquarters in St James’s Place in London, Jacob Rothschild has cultivated an influential set of clients, business associates and friends who have extended his interests far beyond the normal scope of a banker. He was a close personal friend of Diana, Princess of Wales and maintains strong personal and business links with Henry Kissinger.

His country estate has been a regular venue for visiting heads of state including Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Margaret Thatcher received French President François Mitterrand there at a summit in 1990. He hosted the European Economic Round Table conference in 2002, attended by such figures as James Wolfensohn, former president of the World Bank, Nicky Oppenheimer, Warren Buffett and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In 2003 Rothschild came under scrutiny when Russian oil industrialist Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s shares in YUKOS passed to him under a deal they concluded prior to Khodorkovsky’s arrest.”

Nat Rothschild:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathaniel_Philip_Rothschild#Career

“Rothschild began his career in 1994 at Lazard Brothers Asset Management in London, before joining Gleacher Partners, the New York-based mergers and acquisitions (M&A) advisory firm founded by Eric Gleacher, former head of M&A at Morgan Stanley and Lehman Brothers.

Rothschild is the co-chairman of Atticus Capital LP, an international investment management firm established in 1995, that has offices in New York and London. He is also a director of RIT Capital Partners plc, and a director of The Rothschild Foundation. In 2006, he was appointed chairman of Trigranit, a Hungarian developer of which he is a major shareholder.

Rothschild is a member of the Belfer Center’s International Council at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and the International Advisory Council of the Brookings Institution. He is also a member of the International Advisory Board of the Barrick Gold Corporation. He was nominated as a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum in 2005.”

Evelyn de Rothschild:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evelyn_de_Rothschild#Career

“In 1968, Evelyn de Rothschild was appointed a director of Paris-based de Rothschild Frères while Guy de Rothschild from the French branch of the family became a partner at N M Rothschild & Sons. In 1976 he took over as bank chairman from Victor Rothschild and in 1982 became chairman of Rothschilds Continuation Holdings AG, the co-ordinating company for the merchant banking group. He became co-chairman of Rothschild Bank A.G., Zurich in 1994, serving until 2003 when he oversaw the merger of the family’s French and UK houses. David René de Rothschild of the French branch took over as executive chairman of Rothschild International after the different branches had been merged and Sir Evelyn continued as non-executive chairman of N M Rothschild & Sons. In 2003, he founded with his wife, Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a holding company, E.L. Rothschild, to manage their investments in The Economist and various enterprises in India.

Throughout his career, Evelyn de Rothschild has been actively involved in a number of other organisations in both the private and public sectors and has held the following business positions:

* Chairman – The Economist (1972-1989)
* Chairman – British Merchant Banking & Securities House Association (1985-1989)
* Deputy Chairman – Milton Keynes Development Corporation (1971-1984)
* Chairman – United Racecourses (1977-1994)
* Director – De Beers Consolidated Mines (1977-1994)
* Director – IBM United Kingdom Holdings Limited (1972-1995)

Evelyn de Rothschild also served as a Director of the newspaper group owned by Lord Beaverbrook. Years later, he served for a time as a Director of Lord Black’s Daily Telegraph newspaper and was a member of the Hollinger International Advisory Board. An owner of thoroughbred racehorses, he is a former chairman of United Racecourses, which owns Epsom Downs and Sandown Park racecourses.

In 1989 he was knighted by HM Queen Elizabeth II. He has been a Governor of the London School of Economics and Political Science as well as an active patron of the arts and supporter of a number of charities. He served as Chairman of the Delegacy of St Mary’s Hospital Medical School from 1977 to 1988. He has been a Member of the Council of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, a trustee of the Shakespeare Globe Trust, and in 1998 was appointed Chairman of the Princess Royal Trust for Carers. Sir Evelyn was the founding chairman of the 1990 European Association for Banking and Financial History e.V. in Frankfurt, Germany, a position he held until retiring in 2004.”

David Mayer de Rothschild:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Mayer_de_Rothschild

“Neither he nor his brother have shown interest in joining the family-owned N M Rothschild & Sons London banking business and when their father stepped down as chairman in 2003, cousin David René de Rothschild of the French branch of the family took over as head of the worldwide Rothschild Group.”

The most active & prominent living Rothschild in the business world today is:

David René James de Rothschild:

http://www.thepeerage.com/p19539.htm#i195386

“… born in 1942. He is the son of Guy Edouard Alphonse Paul de Rothschild and Alix Hermine Jeanette Schey von Koromla. He married Princess Olimpia Anna Aldobrandini in 1974. David René James de Rothschild was head of NM Rothschild, London in 2003.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Ren%C3%A9_de_Rothschild

“David de Rothschild was educated at Institut d’Études Politiques de Paris in Paris from which he graduated in 1966. He began his business career at Société miniére et métallurgique de Peñarroya, one of the family’s international mining businesses headquartered in Paris. He then began training in de Rothschild Frères bank.

French government reform of banking regulations ended the legal distinction between banques d’affaires and deposit banks and in 1967 de Rothschild Frères became Banque Rothschild, a limited-liability company. David de Rothschild’s father was an aggressive businessman who strove to expand the bank and their investments in mining and oil exploration as chairman of Imetal S.A.. However, the family fortunes suffered a severe setback following the election to the French Presidency of the socialist government of François Mitterrand in 1981. The new parliament nationalized a number of large companies and banks including that of the Rothschild family. An angry and discouraged 72-year-old Guy de Rothschild left France for a time and settled in New York City where the family had existing but limited business activities. In an October 18, 2003 interview with George Trefgarne published in the The Spectator, David de Rothschild said that after nationalisation it took until 1986, when the Socialists lost power, for Rothschild family members to get a new banking license. In 1987 a successor company called Rothschild & Cie Banque was created by David de Rothschild who was joined by his half-brother Edouard and cousin Eric de Rothschild. Capitalized at only $1 million and starting with just three employees, they soon built their tiny investment bank into a major competitor in France and continental Europe.

In 2003, following the retirement of Sir Evelyn de Rothschild as head of N M Rothschild & Sons of London, the English and French firms merged to become one umbrella entity called “Group Rothschild.” Ownership was shared equally between the French and English branches of the family under the leadership of David de Rothschild. In 2007, the English branch sold their share to the French branch. The French branch now fully own N M Rothschild & Sons.

As of 2008, David de Rothschild holds the following corporate positions:

* Chairman of N M Rothschild & Sons
* Chairman of Rothschilds Continuation Holdings
* Vice Chairman of Rothschild Bank AG
* Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Paris Orleans
* Senior Partner of Rothschild & Cie Banque
* Member of the Supervisory Board of Compagnie Financiere Saint-Honore
* Member of the Supervisory Board of Compagnie Financiere Martin Maurel
* Member of the Supervisory Board of De Beers Group
* Member of the Supervisory Board of Groupe Casino

David de Rothschild also owns a share of the Château Lafite-Rothschild vineyard but is not active in the day to day operations.”

And we shall also note:

Benjamin Edmond Maurice de Rothschild

http://www.thepeerage.com/p19546.htm#i195452

“… born in 1963. He is the son of Edmond Adolphe Maurice Jules Jacques de Rothschild and Nadine Nelly Jeannette L’Hopitalier. Benjamin Edmond Maurice de Rothschild was head of the Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild. In 2001 he launched e-Rothschild (an online bank).”
