Truth : Mr Burns Was Not Inspired By Jacob Rothschild!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by conspiracy theorists, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : That Is Not A Photo Of Jacob Rothschild
Let me start by simply pointing out that viral photo is not a photo of Jacob Rothschild.
The source for this photo appears to be a 2014 Imgur post, which claims that the man is a French teacher in an elementary school.
This appears to be corroborated by people in the comments, which further suggest that his name is Mr. Buchilli or Mr. Buchili, possibly from the York Street Public School in Ottawa, Canada.
Fact #2 : Mr Burns Was Not Based On Jacob Rothschild
The Mr Burns character, appearance and mannerisms were NOT based on Jacob Rothschild. They were based on several different people, and none of them are Jacob Rothschild.
Matt Groening based the Mr Burns character mostly on his high school teacher, Mr. Bailey, as well as oil tycoon, John D. Rockefeller and his grandson, David Rockefeller.
But when it comes to appearance, animator David Silverman modelled Mr Burns after Fox founder, Barry Diller, with a body of “a praying mantis”.
In no way was Mr Burns based on Jacob Rothschild’s character, appearance or mannerism.

Fact #3 : Jacob Rothschild Does Not Have 500 Trillion Dollars
The 4th Baron Rothschild, Jacob Rothschild is a very wealthy man, but he is far from being the richest man in the world.
As of 2023, Jacob Rothschild’s net worth is estimated to be over $44 billion dollars. That is a lot of money, but far from the top billionaires which all have over 100 billion dollars.
Needless to say, neither Jacob Rothschild nor the world’s richest people, have a trillion dollars, never mind 500 trillion dollars!
Fact #4 : There Is Less Than 22 Trillion Dollars In The World
It is impossible for any person, or even country, to have 500 trillion dollars, because there is less than 22 trillion dollars in the world today!
The US Federal Reserve estimates that, as of January 2023, there is anywhere from $2.3 trillion to $21.27 trillion, depending on how you define “money”:
Fact #5 : Napoleon Died 115 Years Before Jacob Rothschild Was Born
Jacob Rothschild was born Nathaniel Charles Jacob Rothschild on 29 April 1936 – almost 115 years before Napoleon died on 5 May 1821.
Unless Jacob Rothschild has a time machine, it is simply impossible for him to have financed any war since Napoleon’s death.
Fact #6 : Central Banks Are Generally Owned By The State
With the exception of the United States Federal Reserve, and the European Central Bank, all other central banks are owned by the state – the countries which created them.
The US Federal Reserve has 12 regional banks, with stock owned by member banks. However, it is governed by a board appointed by the President of the United States, and confirmed by the US Senate.
The European Central Bank, on the other hand, are owned by the central banks of all countries in the European Union, which are each owned by their respective countries.
Neither Jacob Rothschild, nor the Rothschild family, own any central bank.
