The Rothschild family lived in Prussia and papa Rothschild was a merchant trader that was able to prosper despite the onerous tax collector and the added burdons put upon all Jews in Prussia. But his best contribution to his legacy was the five sons that he and his wife brought into the world. In the days that they lived, the biggest problem that merchants faces was robbery on the highways as they transported the cash and goods that they needed to conduct business. on his death bed, papa Rothschild advised his five sons to each establish a bank in each of the five large capital cities of Europe. He told them that when a merchant needed to move money from one capital to another, instead of sending cash by couriers that would be robbed, they should simply send a note to the other to provide the cash, and thus trade with each other, keeping the accounts straight between them. Through the period of the wars of Napoleon the Rothschilds loaned Europe the cash that it needed to fight and conquor Napoleon.
A sub-plot is the romance of the daughter of the London son to an army officer that has a very difficult time getting the approval of her father for the union. Another interesting historical item is that although the majority of this motion picture is in black and white, the final minutes are in color, at a time when color was a very new and experimental thing. The history of Europe during the Napoleonic era as seen through the eyes of the House of Rothschild is well told in this historic saga.
