Royal Grant, issued by Christian VII, King of Denmark and Norway, for the City of Odense [Present-day Denmark]: “We, Christian the Seventh, by the grace of God, King of Denmark and Norway etc. etc., declare that, in consideration of the head of the Jewish congregation in Our city of Odense, in Our county of Funen, having made a most submissive supplication and request, as well as produced an attestation issued by the municipal authority [in Odense], We therefore grant and permit: that all Jews in the aforementioned trade city of Odense may hold synagogue in rooms rented or furnished there by them, and that they must not hold their worship elsewhere.” [Researcher’s note: Odense is Denmark’s third-largest city.]
