Writ of Henry VII of Luxemburg [Present-day Germany]: “Henry VII permits the nobleman Friedrich von Schleiden, his blood-relative, to admit and keep Jews in his castle Schleiden to improve his imperial-loans/domains.” [Researcher’s note: The above is a translation of a German summary of the old original text, which can be found in Lünig’s Teutsche Reichsarchiv (Volume 22). This, in effect, permitted von Schleiden to admit Jews into his domain and to tax them and place special levies on them in order to increase cash-flow in his territory.]
