Zoe de Rothschild was one of two daughters of Gustave de Rothschild (1829-1911) whose father was Baron James Mayer de Rothschild, the original founder of the French branch of the Rothschild family. Baron James was the fifth son of Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744–1812), who was a German banker and founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty. He sent each of his five sons to a prominent European commercial centre in order to found branches of the family banking empire. Baron Leon Lambert, father Samuel Lambert, was also a banker and had started Banque Lambert in 1840 and, after merging with Banque Brussels in 1974, became one of Belgian largest banks. Both the Lambert and Rothschild families have been famous art collectors over many generations.
