More information

Amschel Mayer was the second child and eldest son of Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744–1812), the founder of the dynasty, and Gutlé Rothschild née Schnapper (1753–1849).

On the death of Mayer Amschel in 1812, Amschel Mayer succeeded as head of the bank at Frankfurt-am-Main, his brothers having been dispatched to set up banking houses in Paris, London, Naples and Vienna.


As Amschel Mayer died childless, the sons of his brothers (Anselm, son of Salomon, and Mayer Carl and Wilhelm Carl, sons of Carl) assumed responsibility for the business from 1855.

He was ennobled as Amschel Mayer von Rothschild in 1817 and became a baron in 1822.
