James Mayer de Rothschild, Baron de Rothschild (1792 – 1868), born Jakob Mayer Rothschild. German-French banker and the founder of the French branch of the Rothschild family. Brother of Nathan Mayer.
- "If Nathan Rothschild
became Britain's most formidable business myth, his small red-haired
brother, James, cast the longest shadow through the best French salons.
[...] His red hair was always carefully curled in the latest dandies'
- "James, the youngest of the five Rothschild brothers, arrived in
Paris in 1812 at the age of twenty, small and pudgy, red-haired and
without a word of French." https://books.google.it/books…
