The Union Générale was a French Catholic bank created in 1875 by Catholic monarchists and was popular among conservatives. It was taken over in 1878 by Paul Eugène Bontoux, associated with the Rothschilds. It went bankrupt in a resounding manner in 1882 in association with a stock market crash. It and others scandals influenced anti-Semitism in France and were part of the background for the Dreyfus affair.
