Eat your heart out Bill Gates... lol... Is this what 2pac kept yelling about ? ...lol... Anyway, good stuff. Maybe we can get them to buy the Steelers once the Rooney's want to sell ? Unless the Rooney's are already among their "Lieutenant's". Pretty good take for a kid born in the ghetto...




Who is Meyer Rothschild ?

Meyer[2] Amschel Rothschild was born in 1744 in the ghetto (called "Judengasse" or Jew Alley) in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, one of eight children of Amschel Moses Rothschild (d. 1755) and his wife Schönche Rothschild née Lechnich (d. 1756).[3][4]

The ancestry of the Rothschilds can be traced back to 1577 to Izaak Elchanan Rothschild, whose name derived from the house he occupied in the Judengasse — zum roten Schild ("at the sign of the red shield").[5] His grandchildren and descendents took this name as the family name and kept it when they relocated in 1664 to another house in the Judengasse — Hinterpfann (literally "house in the back of the saucepan")[6] — which became the family's home and business location through to the early 19th century.

The father of Mayer Amschel had a business in the trade of small goods and currency exchange. The family home above the shop had a front wall only 11 feet (3.4 m) wide, where more than 30 people lived at that time.
