Writ of Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV [Present-day Switzerland]: “Emperor Louis, the Bavarian, confirms the Jewry of Zurich, his chamber-servants, payment of 50 Florentine Gulden, which they have been submitting to Count Eberhard von Nelleburg [his Landvogt*] as per his order for two years as tax-payments […]” [Researcher’s note: *A Vogt or Landvogt was akin to bailiffs in certain German-speaking territories during the Holy Roman Empire.]
