  1. Rothschild

    Rothschild (German pronunciation: [ˈʁoːt.ʃɪlt]) is a name derived from the German zum rothen Schild (with the old spelling "th"), meaning "with the red sign", in reference to the houses where these family members lived or had lived. At the time, houses were designated by signs with different symbols or colors, not numbers. The name Rothschild in Yiddish means "red coat" (coat as in heraldic coat of arms). The Rothschild banking family's coat of arms features in the center of its heraldry a red shield. The German surname "Rothschild" is not related to the Scottish/Irish surname of "Rothchilds" from the United Kingdom.

    Rothschild means many different things.. from red signs like roblox to red coat. Could also be a red flag or all red flags. Color red is symbolic to sacrifice danger and blood. The word Roth can be pronounced wroth or wrath. Basically Jacob or Israel is beast of child sacrifice. The rothschild control nearly every bank in the world so mark of the beast could be like Deutsche mark of the bank..the beast or antichrist can be everywhere and anyone.
