Son of Alphonse and Léonora de Rothschild, Edouard led the family business in Paris with his younger cousin Robert. He was also a director of the Banque de France.

In 1905, he married Germaine Alice Halphen. The couple lived between the Saint-Florentin mansion, the château de Ferrières-en-Brie and Sans Souci. He took refuge in the United States in 1940, only to return to France after the war.

He was the heir to his father’s collection.
