Length: {6:05 minutes}

Bill Still’s documentary highlights the Rothschild family’s strategic and financial acumen during and after the Battle of Waterloo.

Following Napoleon’s escape from exile and subsequent defeat at Waterloo in 1815, Nathan Rothschild capitalized on his advance knowledge of the battle’s outcome. Rothschild had a network that provided him with the news before the British government, allowing him to manipulate the British stock market. By initially selling off his holdings and causing a market panic, he then bought up devalued bonds at a fraction of their worth, significantly increasing his wealth and influence.

This episode exemplifies how the Rothschilds used their intelligence network and financial strategies to gain control over the British bond market and potentially the Bank of England.

By the mid-1800s, the Rothschild family had become the wealthiest family in the world, dominating government bond markets and various industrial sectors. Despite their immense wealth, the family maintained a low profile, with most of their enterprises not bearing the Rothschild name.

The documentary suggests that their financial power has likely continued to grow, even as they have cultivated an image of reduced influence.
