Fuggers

.

German merchants, proverbial for their great wealth. “Rich as a Fugger” is common in Old English dramatists. Charles V. introduced some of the family into Spain, where they superintended the mines.

“I am neither an Indian merchant, nor yet a Fugger, but a poor boy like yourself.”—Gusman dʹAlfarache.
