  • Notes 
    • When a grandee observed that Frau Rothschild would probably outlive all her guests, she answered, in arch imitation of her sons' stock-market language, "Why should God take me at a hundred when he can have me at ninety-four?" When another Highness offered her his personal physician, a wizard guaranteed to make his patients twenty years younger, Frau Rothschild said, "People always think I want to grow younger. I don't. I want to grow older."
      At Amschel's signal, the state visit departed. Later Frau Rothschild's words would be retold in the best drawing rooms. But her most famous phrase was spoken just after one of those splendiferous assemblies had vanished into its equipages. A ghetto neighbor ran into the house, worried about her sons who had just come of military age. She asked Frau Rothschild if there had been any news from the great personages? Would there be peace or war? "War?" Gutele said simply. "Nonsense. My boys won't let them."
      As usual she was right. "My boys won't let them" summed up much of the invisible politics of the nineteenth century.
