Was Stalin's Father a Rothschild Banker ?

Baron Alphonse James de Rothschild

 had an agent whom he favored above the rest. His name was Maurice Ephrussi and he represented the French Rothschilds in the oil-rich Caucasus.

Maurice Ephrussi (Nov. 18, 1849 - Oct. 29, 1916) was a Ukrainian-born French Jewish banker. His father had made a vast fortune exporting the wheat of the Ukraine to Europe.

The Rothschild's were the Tsar's official banker. The Ephrussi's were the Rothschild's agent to the Tsar. 

It was Maurice Ephrussi who first proposed the Russian oil business to Alphonse de Rothschild.

Ephrussi thoroughly understood the Russian oil industry. He just knew that with the Nobel brother's dynamite blasting through the Caucasus Mountains; Rothschild-financed railroads could carry Russia's oil to the world if Russia could get their hands on a suitable port on the Black Sea.

(l. Maurice Ephrussi, short like his son)

Maurice Ephrussi's pitch was not lost on Alphonse de Rothschild. 

Alphonse de Rothschild must have envisioned his family's newly acquired oil refineries humming with an endless supply of cheap Russian oil. The wealth that would result in the venture would be incalculable. Maurice married Baron Alphonse de Rothschild's youngest daughter, Beatrice, on June 5, 1883.


At the time of Stalin's conception (Feb. 1878), his mother, Ketevan "Keke" Jughashvili neé Geladze (February 5, 1858 - June 4, 1937), was a beautiful 20-year-old woman. She worked as a laundress for a Jewish wine merchant in the Georgian city of Gori.

Ephrussi would have no reason to stop in Gori to visit a wine merchant unless he wanted to pick up a few cases of champagne.

Ephrussi, though only 28-years-old in March of 1878 was no errand boy. He was a prince of European high-finance.

Consider the following quotes:
 from Simon Sebag Montefiore's "Young Stalin"

"As for Keke herself, it has always been hard to match the pious old lady in her black nunnish headdress of the 1930s with the irrepressible young woman of the 1880s. Her piety is not in doubt, but religious observance has never ruled out sins of the flesh. She certainly took pride in being "the desired and beautiful girl" and there is evidence that she was much more worldly than she appeared. 

"As an old lady, Keke, supposedly encouraged Nina Beria, wife of Stalin's Caucasian viceroy and later secret police chief, Lavrenti Beria, to take lovers and talked very spicily about sexual matters: "When I was young, I cleaned house for people and when I met a good-looking boy, I didn't waste the opportunity." (pp.27-28) 

Keke's husband Beso referred to Stalin (Soso) as "Keke's little bastard":

"When Soso hid, Beso searched the house screaming, "Where is Keke's little bastard? Hiding under the bed? Keke fought back. Once, Soso arrived at Davrichewy's house with his face covered in blood, crying: "Help! Come quickly! He's killing my mother!" The officer ran round to the Djugashvilis to find Beso strangling Keke."

As a young man Stalin worked at the Rothschild refinery in the storehouse, and ran the union. Montefiore writes:

"The Rothschild managing director, David Landau, regularly contributed to Bolshevik funds, as recorded by the Okhrana -- whose agents noted how, when Stalin was running the Baku Party, a Bolshevik clerk in one of the oil companies "was not active in operations but concentrated on collecting donations and got money from Landau of the Rothschilds." It is likely that Landau met Stalin personally. Another Rothschild executive, Dr. Felix Somary, a banker with the Austrian branch of the family and later a distinguished  academic, claims he went to Baku to settle a strike. He paid Stalin the money. The strike ended."

Stalin financed Bolshevik activities and presumable his money came from the Rothschilds.  


1. Ephrussi was the Rothschild pointman in the Caucasus.

2. It would have been him to deal with the Grand Duke in Tiflis.

3. Keke also worked at the Grand Duke's Palace. She had plausible reason to be in the palace at the estimated time of Stalin's conception.

4. Stalin is the spitting image of Ephrussi.

5. Strong family resemblance to a close-up photo of Maurice's half-brother.

6. Stalin claimed to be the son of a priest. Judging from their family tree, the Ephrussi's had married Levensohns and Kaans. The Ephrussis were probably Kohanim (priest class).

Did Maurice Ephrussi, the son-in-law of Baron Alphonse de Rothschild father Stalin in March of 1878?

Have we finally solved the 132-year old mystery surrounding Stalin's birth?

Was Ephrussi a Rothschild?

Consider this excerpt from "The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Hidden Inheritance by Edmund de Waal (2010) (page 93):

"All the Jewish finance houses of France are anathematised by rote: 'Les Rothschilds, Erlanger, Hirsch, Ephrussi, Bamberger, Camondo, Stern, Cahen d'Avers...Membres de la finance internationale'. The complex intermarriage between the clans is repeated endlessly to build up a picture of one terrible spider's web of intrigue, a web even more tightly bound when Maurice Ephrussi marries Beatrice, the daughter of the head of the French Rothschilds, Alphonse de Rothschild. These two families now count as one."

So, for all intents and purposes...since Stalin was fathered by Maurice Ephrussi, he indeed was a Rothschild or rather a Ephrussi-Rothchild to be more exact. He was simply fathered outside society's legal parameters and customs, but we are dealing with people who eat those laws and customs for breakfast . In fact, they create new ones for the rest of us.

Stalin's newly revealed relationship with the Rothschilds would also explain where Stalin got the money to fund the Bolsheviks. Bank robberies and petty extortion schemes were designed not to raise money per se but to provide for an explanation why the Bolsheviks HAD funds. People assumed that their money came from crime. Crime was just a cover. Sometimes it would be like, "Joey darling, conduct a strike so we can come in and give you more money. People will think that we are just trying to settle a strike.Got it?." Then Stalin would say, "Great idea, Grandpa Alphonse! I'll get on it right away!" And so Stalin would strike and the Rothschilds would pay him his "demands."

It is old news that the Bolsheviks were financed and backed by international banking. (See Jacob Schiff) Nevertheless, it is always interesting to learn the nitty gritty of their operations.

The Rothschilds raised one of their own to murder millions of political obstacles in order to take over the vast natural resources of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. But this is history. Today? That very formula gave them mastery over the entire Earth or at least the portions that have some value. The Earth is merely their Plantation #1 and we are it's workers. I'll bet the Hubble has already spotted Plantation #2. Where is Wikileaks when you need it?

That is really an interesting article. That would explain where Stalin got the money from to build his huge army, why
the Jews got an autonomous area (Birobidzhan) from him and the other 200 minorities in Russia not. And
why he was able to become a high ranking Freemason. Poor farmer boys normally don t become Freemasons.
Though Freemasons deny that he was one, there are enough posing-pictures from him which clearly show that he was
one of them. Here
