In 1813 Nathan became a close associate of the British Commissary General, John Charles Herries, the man responsible for financing Wellington's invasion of France.
John Herries worked his way up through the ranks of government. During his tenure as Commissary General he used the help of Nathan to transfer money to the British and allied army troops on the continent. No easy feat. Rothschild's role in these transfers was one of the foundations that led to the success of the English banking empire.
Please check out my other blog Jane in the Jungle. You'll see the link above.
For the run of rehearsals and The Rothschilds Jane in the Jungle may be "on vacation", keeping up with two blogs is a bit of a challenge but I'll give it a shot. After The Rothschilds I'll switch back.
Feel free to contact me atJanefal@comcast.net with any questions you might have.
The purpose of this site is to make available a wealth of information concerning the June 2009 production of TheRothschilds. I hope it will answer any questions you might have. You will be able to check this site for details about auditions, production information, Rothschild history and background, and announcements.
If you have any questions please email me at Janefal@comcast.net
