  1. How did the banks come about?

The banks became the main lenders of the crowns.

The first bank transactions are sent to Babylon and Greece, in times before Christ. In this last territory, reference is made to the so-called trapezitas, who were people who were engaged in all kinds of commercial activities. Even so, the most important banking centers of the Ancient Age were the temples, which were in charge of the religious authorities. However, at this time, the negotiated ones were carried out through bartering, mostly.

There would not be a more formal emergence of these institutions until the Crusades, since they would impel an urgent need to transfer sums of money from one territory to another quickly . This was done with the signing of documents that could be exchanged for the corresponding amount in another branch.

Recall that, during this period, the church dominated large areas of land, managing to obtain huge amounts of money from donations that flowed from all European points, taxes and rents. In addition, with the monetary differences, the exchange rate was also encouraged.

The first banks as such were founded in Italy, in their main cities, with the background that this country was an important financial and commercial activity center, as well as being the headquarters of the Vatican.

The choice of "bank" as the name of these entities corresponds to the fact that the first transactions were made on these elements. Its growth, almost ending the Crusades, was due to the fact that the banks became the main lenders of the crowns, especially in France.
