Jacob Rothschild (1936-2024): “We live in times of great uncertainty” — the last great interview with the banker and collector

Baron Jacob Rothschild is already up there, at Waddesdon Manor, the palace that was built by Ferdinand de Rothschild in 1877. This English palace is located near Aylesbury, in Buckinghamshire. And it is linked to the founding of the State of Israel. It belonged to a Rothschild passionate about Natural History, who had a carriage pulled by zebras. And that he received an important letter sent by the British authorities in 1917, promising the creation of a State for the Jewish people in Palestine.

When the first stone of this palace was laid, this part of England was known as Rothschildshire, due to the amount of Rothschild family properties that existed in the Buckinghamshire region. As early as 1890, Queen Victoria visited Waddesdon Manor, and an elevator was installed in the palace. But the queen refrained from using it, as she distrusted that modernity. Before coming close to power in several European states, the Rothschilds began their dynasty in the 18th century from a gloomy house in Frankfurt’s Jewish ghetto. Of the family’s 10 children who survived to adulthood, five were men. Patriarch Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812) sent one son to London and another to Paris, with the aim of expanding the family business. Later, two other brothers settled in Naples and Vienna.
