The House of Hesse’s more ancient ancestry is somewhat connected with the Aesti clan of Estonia with the Esterhazy, Este, and Essen families. The Aesti clan was located in the modern day regions of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. The Essen family were located in Estonia and worked with the Russian military and also established themselves as a Swedish nobility after Sweden conquered Estonia. Peter Kirillovich Essen and Ivan Essen were Russian military generals. Hans Henric von Essen was a high level military leader working for the Swedish Crown and his son Baron Fredrik von Essen was a high level Swedish politician. Baron Alexander von Essen is a current member of this family and owns a vineyard in South Africa. Gustaf Douglas is a Swedish billionaire and his wife is Elisabeth von Essen. Thomas Von Essen was FDNY Commissioner during 9/11, a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, and currently the FEMA Regional Administrator for Region II in New York City. Heinrich Deichmann is a German billionaire with his shoe company headquartered in Essen. The Aesti clan were located in parts of ancient Lithuania. Leon Hess’s family was from Lithuania and he founded the Hess Corporation which has about 34 billion in assets. The House of Hesse likely have some shares in Hess Corporation. John B. Hess is the current CEO of Hess. The House of Hesse are also claimants to the Kingdom of Finland because Prince Frederick Charles of Hesse was elected King of Finland during German occupation which at the time was similar to Germany’s takeover of Estonia and Lithuania. The Mountbattens are closely related to the House of Hesse through Princess Victoria of Hesse as the maternal founder of the family. George Mountbatten the 4th Marquess of Milford Haven, Henry David Louis Mountbatten the Earl of Medina, and Lord Ivar Mountbatten are current members of this family. The Mountbattens are a British branch of the House of Hesse.
Hessians were mercenaries from Hesse-Cassel and Hesse-Hanau which were states ruled by the House of Hesse. Hessian soldiers were hired by the British Crown to fight in the American Revolution. Hessian mercenaries also fought on both sides of the War of the Austrian Succession. I believe the House of Hesse are involved with Asgaard which is a German private military company. Essen is a German city in North Rhine-Westphalia. King Zwentibold of Lotharingia and of the Ottonian dynasty established the Essen Abbey with Princess-Abbesses to govern over the city of Essen. The Hesse family married in with the Abbesses of Essen with Landgravine Maria Eleonore of Hesse-Rotenburg the mother of Abbess Francisca Christina of Essen. Essen is Habsburg-Hesse territory. The Waldthausens were a wealthy banking and industrial family from Essen. The Krupp family originated from Essen, Germany and they are an industrial family involved with producing steel and armaments. Krupp was a major military armament supplier for the Nazis and used Nazi slave labor. Krupp merged to become ThyssenKrupp which has about 35 billion in assets and the House of Hesse covertly own shares in this company likely through the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation. Thyssen was another wealthy German family whose companies like Vereinigte Stahlwerke AG worked with the Nazis. The Thyssen family married into the Zichy family of Hungary where the House of Habsburg have ruled. The current head of the Zichy family is Count Claudio Zichy-Thyssen the owner of Thyssen Schachtbau and he is a major landowner in Argentina where the Nazis fled to. Thyssen Schachtbau is an industrial construction company involved with mining and transportation. Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza was the father in law of Arch Duke Karl von Habsburg.
Landesbank Hessen-Thuringen or Helaba is a German bank in Hesse-Cassel created out of a merger of several older banks in Hesse like Landeskreditkasse zu Kassel. Darmstadt and National Bank was the second largest bank in Germany created out of a merger with the Hesse based Darmstadt Bank for Trade and Industry and the National Bank for Germany. Darmstadt and National Bank was forced to close down creating a banking crisis. It was purchasing its own shares at a higher rate than their worth and gave out more loans then what the bank was worth. This hurt the German economy and helped to give rise to the Nazis and blaming all Jews for what the German princes’ corrupt Court Jew bankers did. Prince Wilhelm of Hesse-Philippsthal-Barchfeld was a captain in the Nazi military. Prince Wilhelm received Nazi salutes during his wedding to Princess Marianne. I believe the House of Hesse covertly oversee the BfV German intelligence agency. Heinz Fromm was head of the BfV from 2000-2012 and previously Secretary of State in the Hessian Ministry of the Interior. Fromm resigned because he destroyed files on the Neo-Nazi group called the National Socialist Underground. Princess Mafalda of Hesse was married to the Italian Count Enrico Marone Cinzano and later married and also divorced Count Ferdinando Brachetti Peretti also of Italy. The House of Hesse have alliances with the Italian nobility and House of Savoy. The grandmother of Donatus and Mafalda was Princess Mafalda of Savoy of Italian royalty. Landgrave Donatus of Hesse is the head of this family today and an extremely murderous Nazi. Other members include Donatus’s wife Countess Floria of Hesse and she is from the Faber-Castell family as well as Prince Philip of Hesse, Princess Elena of Hesse, Prince Rainer Christoph Friedrich of Hesse, Princess Irina of Hesse, and Prince Christoph of Hesse.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild was born in 1744 in the Judengasse, in Frankfurt. His father, Amschel Moses had a business in goods-trading and currency exchange. He was a personal supplier of collectable coins to the Prince of Hesse.
Mayer Amschel gained the title of ‘Court Agent’, managing the finances of Wilhelm I who became Wilhelm IX, Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel on the death of his father in 1785.
Faber-Castell, established in 1761 by the cabinet maker Kaspar Faber (1730-1784†), is one of the oldest industrial companies in the world. The company is the world’s leading manufacturer of wood-cased pencils with a varied range of products for writing, drawing and creative design, as well as decorative cosmetics. Faber-Castell is renowned for its high quality, innovative products, commitment to tradition, and environmental awareness.
