The Moneylenders Who Began Britain’s Wall Street

Lombard Street is a lot like America’s Wall Street. Over 800 years ago the Lombards who settled there were moneylenders, giving this London area special historical significance. Who were the Lombards? Their original name, Langobardi may mean “men of the long axes”. The Lombards were members of ancient European Teutonic tribes, defined as tall and blonde and included many other northern European groups. In 568 the Lombards conquered Northern Italy, and contributed to the history of Moravia as it was there they became Arians adapting the doctrine that Christ was not the eternal Son of God nor of that essence. Northern Italy still bears their name, Lombardy.
