Has anyone read Niall Ferguson's books on the Rothschilds?
Just asking. I don't doubt that their footprint on the planet is significant, but differentiating fact from friction is difficult. Thinking that they
are the top of the pile...well, wouldn't other big families keep them in check?
How is this a list of the Wealthiest families in History when the lowest they go is to the year 1000 and there had to be more families that were
wealthy between 1000 and 1450 than just 3 families.
If they wanted a real historical list they could have at least started at 1AD why is there no one from the Persian, Roman, Egyptian, Mongol empires on
there if you were to calculate there wealth and converted to amounts proportional with today most of them would be at the top of the list especially
the Egyptians and Mongols.
