@InfoTeddy @JerkSock The book Planet Rothschild by M. S. King has entire sections devoted to Napoleon. Well worth a read. Here are some interesting sections:

Napoleon is very tolerant in his attitude towards the Jews. As a result, he has won the respect of many of them. But he has his motives. Historian Rabbi Berel Wein reveals that Napoleon was primarily interested in seeing the Jews assimilated, rather than prosper as an alien community:

"Napoleon's outward tolerance and fairness toward Jews was actually based upon his grand plan to have them disappear entirely by means of total assimilation, intermarriage, and conversion." (19)

This attitude can be seen from a letter Napoleon wrote in November 1806,

"It is necessary to reduce, if not destroy, the tendency of Jewish people to practice a very great number of activities that are harmful to civilization and to public order in society in all the countries of the world. It is necessary to stop the harm by preventing it; to prevent it, it is necessary to change the Jews. ... Once part of their youth will take its place in our armies, they will cease to have Jewish interests and sentiments; their interests and sentiments will be French." (20)

Again, privately, in an 1808 letter to his brother Jerome, Napoleon makes his assimilation plans clear:

"I have undertaken to reform the Jews, but I have not endeavored to draw more of them into my realm. Far from that, I have avoided doing anything which could show any esteem for the most despicable of mankind." (21)


In response to complaints about Jewish money lenders, Napoleon had, in 1806, suspended all debts owed to them. In 1808, he goes a step further and issues a decree that the money lenders refer to as "The Infamous Decree."

Napoleon wants the Jews to move away from their traditional money lending practices and become farmers and craftsmen instead. His decree severely restricts the practice of lending, and annuls all debts owed by married women, minors, and soldiers. Any loan that had an interest rate exceeding 10 percent is also annulled.

Napoleon's religious tolerance is admired by many of the Jews. But his efforts to regulate usury upset the Jewish money-lenders and seal his fate. That is why, to this day, they refer to Napoleon's decree as "The Infamous Decree." The Rothschilds of Europe must destroy Napoleon before his anti-debt monetary philosophy can take hold in Europe.




From his base in London's financial district, (“The City”) Nathan Rothschild single-handedly continues to finance Britain's war to defeat Napoleon. Shipments of gold to the European continent fund the Duke of Wellington's armies and also those of Britain's allies, Prussia and Austria. The Rothschild brothers co-ordinate their activities across the continent, and develop a network of agents, shippers, and couriers to transport gold across war-torn Europe. Were it not for Rothschild's limitless fortune, the Allies would surely have had to make peace with Napoleon by now.

and what you were really looking for:

JUNE, 1815


The Rothschild Brothers utilize courier pigeons to rapidly communicate amongst themselves and their agents. The network provides Nathan Rothschild with political and financial information ahead of his peers, giving him an advantage in the financial markets. After the final defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo, Rothschild receives word of the battle's outcome long before anyone else.

Rothschild will use the "insider information" of Wellington's victory to become Britain’s supreme master. He orders his brokers to sell off his holdings. Other brokers assume that Rothschild has therefore learned that Britain has lost at Waterloo. A panic sell-off drives the market down to historic lows. Rothschild then buys up the devalued market at bargain prices.

When the public learns of Britain’s victory over Napoleon, the stocks skyrocket to new heights. Nathan Rothschild multiplies his massive fortune by 20 times!

The 1934 film [referring to "The House of Rothschild"] does indeed portray Rothschild’s buying-up of the London market, but makes it seem like it was the “accidental” consequence of his trying to “save” the market and not “insider trading”!

Planet Rothschild is not the best source on this matter (his citations all consist of "internet search term: [insert term here]" in order to link readers to "multiple sources all at once" -- far from reliable and short-sighted with respect to how these terms change. However it does serve as a good summary of information that can be reasonably readily found, and more directly cited, elsewhere.

I think the doc, "Money Masters", explains it. I can't remember if "The Creature from Jekyll Island " delved into any of it...
