Samuel Bleichröder (15 July 1779 – 30 December 1855) was German Jewish banker and financier. Located in Berlin, Bleichröder dealt with the Prussian court.[1] He was also involved with the Rothschilds of Frankfurt.[2]

His family originated from Bleicherode in Thuringia, hence the surname. Both his sons Gerson von Bleichröder and Julius Bleichröder became bankers.
