The Rothschilds did it during the Napoleonic Wars. Always bugged me: why didn't these greedy heads of state just take over their gold and be done with it? It is nearly magical how they survive unmolested while the said heads would even march all the way to Moscow for glory and booty. And yet they begged for loans from their own nominal "subjects".
