Nathaniel Philip Rothschild is the youngest of four children and only son of Jacob Rothschild, 4th Baron Rothschild and Serena Mary Dunn. His mother was from a Christian background while his father was raised Jewish (Rothschild's paternal grandfather was born into a Jewish family, while Rothschild's paternal grandmother had converted to Judaism upon marriage). His maternal grandparents were Lady Mary Sybil St. Clair-Erskine, daughter of James St Clair-Erskine, 5th Earl of Rosslyn and Sir Philip Gordon Dunn, 2nd Baronet, whose father was the Canadian financier and tycoon, Sir James Dunn.
He was educated at Colet Court (in the same year as Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne), Eton College and Wadham College, Oxford where he read history, gaining a 2:1. Rothschild was a member of the Bullingdon Club as an undergraduate, at the same time as George Osborne.
He was once briefly married to socialite and model Annabelle Neilson but they divorced in 1997. He has since been linked to Natalie Portman, Petra Nemcova, and Princess Florence von Preussen (born 1983), a great granddaughter of the last German Emperor, Wilhelm II, and a cousin of Queen Elizabeth II. He has regularly been referred to as one of the most eligible bachelors in New York and London.
Rothschild lived for a time in New York before settling in Switzerland in 2000, and according to the Swiss business magazine Bilanz he is a resident of Klosters in Graubünden.
The racehorse Nathaniel, winner of the 2011 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes, was bred and owned by Rothschild's mother and is named after him.
