But the Rothschild name and history weighed heavily on him. Sir Evelyn’s father was the chairman, and his great-great-grandfather was the founder, of N.M. Rothschild & Sons, the British branch of the family banking empire that began in 18th-century Frankfurt, Germany, and spread across Europe for 200 years, making fortunes and influencing the destinies of nations through networks of couriers and spies, financial wizardry, and political alliances.

The Rothschilds had financed European armies during the Napoleonic Wars, rescued the Bank of England during a liquidity crisis, helped pass the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833, and financed Britain’s purchase of a controlling interest in the Suez Canal in 1875. It had even aided in the construction of London’s subway system, the Underground.
