Yes, I found this:

Quote
Born of the Austrian house, married into the Naples one (Adolph von Rothschild was her husband),
living in Paris and a frequent visitor to her brother Ferdy's English splendors, Julie had her favorite
residence in Switzerland---a fairytale villa in Pregny on the shores of Lake Geneva. On September 9,
1898, she and the villa became linked with a dark hallmark in Habsburg history.
That day the Empress of Austria came to visit, not in an Austrian vessel of state, not in the Rothschild
yacht Julie had offered, but by ordinary steamer. She arrived in her customary deeply veiled, discreetly
hatted, strictly incognito fashion (she traveled as Countess Hohenembs), attended by a single
lady-in-waiting.
As so often, Julie managed to cheer her high guest. The magnificent dinner was served with subtle regard
for the dietary laws of both ladies: Julie ate kosher; while Elizabeth was the first low-calorie Empress,
with Vogue cheekbones and, despite her sixty years, an infinitesimal waistline. The concealed orchestra
played a sweet Italian air. The hostess steered the conversation to Heine, her guest's favorite poet; and
before long the All-Highest lady proposed a champagne toast, a levity rare in her melancholy later years.
Afterwards the ladies adjourned to the gardens and then to Julie's hothouses. Arranged by countries and
climates, the plants constituted the finest private conservatory in Switzerland. As an exquisite bouquet of
petals and aromas enveloped the Empress, she brightened still further. All was smiles until the time of
departure. Then Elizabeth signed the visitors' book and, still in her pleasant mood, turned it a few pages
back. She stopped, pale. There was the signature of Crown Prince Rudolf. Her son, too, had been a guest
at Pregny, shortly before his suicide at Mayerling.
When the Empress left, Julie noticed tears in her eyes.
213
And later the lady-in-waiting recalled that on the way back, again by ordinary steamer, Elizabeth had
talked about nothing but death. The subject was apt. Less than fifteen hours afterward, in front of her

Caroline Julie Anselme Rothschild (1830-1907) was the daughter of Anselm Rothschild (son of Salomon), of the Vienna branch, and his wife/first-cousin, Charlotte (daughter of Nathan).

In 1850, Julie married Adolph Carl Rothschild (son of Carl), of the Naples branch, who was a first cousin of both of her parents.  They had no children.

Julie was famous for smoking cigars and sailing her yacht around Lake Geneva delivering boxes of her grapes to neighbors.

One of Julie's sisters, Sara Louise, married Baron Raimondo Franchetti.

She left her vast fortune including priceless art collections and estates to a favorite, albeit rather dissolute, French cousin, 26-year-old Maurice "Momo" de Rothschild, second son of Baron Edmond de Rothschild.

Worth Discussing:
The Rothschild family (often referred to simply as the Rothschilds), is an international banking and finance dynasty of German Jewish origin that established operations across Europe, and was ennobled by the Austrian and British governments.

Why they never recived any higher title than Baron?They had so much money and supported so many royals...Was that because they were Jewish?

I think being Jewish had something to do with it.  I know the Austrian branch was close to many royals but I don't believe they were every "allowed" at court.

I find it very fascinating how interconnected the rise of the Rotchshilds was with the big politics of the time:

Landgrave Wilhelm IX of Hesse-Kassel (1743-1821) was mostly concerned with enlarging his huge inherited fortune (stemming from his father's sale of his subjects to his relative King George III to fight in the American Revolutionary War) and producing Hessensteins / illegitimate children (ca. 25 with three different mistresses, the most famous was the Countess of Schlotheim. Of course he totally ignored his Danish wife, a daughter of Frederik V. BTW she was a patroness of the Brothers Grimm, who were court librarians in Kassel.) Napoleon occupied his country and gave it to his brother as the Kingdom of Westphalia (and King Jerome tried to outdo the Landgrave in immorality), but the exiled Landgrave managed to save his fortune with the help of the Rothschilds in London, who had made their way out of the Frankfurt ghetto, just outside Hessian territory, as his bankers. They loaned out his fortune to the Allied Powers fighting Napoleon and harvested the interest, so Wilhelm's assets were intact when he returned to restored Hesse-Cassel as freshly minted Elector Wilhelm I.
