Nathan Mayer Rothschild (1777-1836) led his brothers to the pinnacle of the financial world. His London House, NM Rothschild, dealt in bullion and foreign exchange and gained a contract from the British Government to supply Wellington’s troops with gold coins in 1814 leading up to the Battle of Waterloo.
