Was Stalin's Father a Rothschild Banker?

by Clifford Shack

                                             Rothschild banker,Maurice Ephrussi.

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.

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.

But wasn't Keke married? Could she have engaged in sex with the young banker? 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 (Beso) 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?
