Writ of Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV [Present-day Germany]: “Louis, the Bavarian, bestows grace upon his chamber-servants, the Jews of Regensburg […] that because they have been pledged to his cousins, they (Jews) are no longer going to be taxed by him or by [his cousins] in addition to the [required] 200 Pound pennies (‘Pfund Pfennigen’), except if their [financial] situation/possessions and properties have improved.”
