Aron Mendel & Marcus Ritter Leidesdorf von Neuwall - Leidesdorf Nobility

Aron Mendel and Marcus Leidesdorf amassed wealth by being suppliers to the military during French and Napoleonic Wars (1769-1820). Being a key supplier during the War of Liberations in 1813-14 earned them the approval to be knighted – Marcus became Edler von Neuwall in 1817. Previous requests to be knighted were refused because Jews were not allowed to own land prior to that time in Vienna, Austria.
 
Just like Samuel D. Leidesdorf passed on his philanthropic ways to his son Arthur many years later in the U.S., Menachem Mendel Leidesdorf, who was President of the Preßburg, Austria Jewish Community for many years, instilled the same in Aron and Marcus who became two of the wealthiest members of Vienna Jewish Community. Aron was the Honorary Director of Vienna Jewish Community Hospital (known as the Rothschild Hospital before it was destroyed in World War II) for 40 years, which paralleled Samuel Leidesdorf support of New York City’s University Hospital.
 
While Marcus remained Jewish his entire life, the glamour of nobility caused Marcus’ children to convert to Christianity during his lifetime. This must have been very difficult for him to deal with.
