Baroness Philippine Mathilde Camille de Rothschild (born Paris, France, 22 November 1933) is the owner of the French winery Château Mouton Rothschild. She also has acted under the stage name Philippine Pascale. She is the only daughter of the vintner Baron Philippe de Rothschild, a member of the Rothschild banking dynasty. At the time of her birth, her mother, Elisabeth Pelletier de Chambure, a French Catholic noblewoman, was the wife of Jonkheer Marc de Becker-Rémy, a Belgian nobleman. After a legal skirmish and the Jonkheer's threats to kidnap his wife's child, the Becker-Rémys divorced in 1934, at which time the lovers married in Paris.

When she was ten years old, she witnessed the Gestapo arrest her mother, Elisabeth Pelletier de Chambure, who later died at Ravensbrück concentration camp (the only member of the Rothschild family to die during WW2).
