Court-Decree, issued by Francis II, King of Bohemia [Present-day Czech Republic]: “Since, on account of existing laws, the Jews in Bohemia are unable to hold any real property that has ever been registered as that of a Christian, they are equally inadmissible as buyers of Christian real estate, even for the sole purpose of offering it for sale following their acquisition of a [defaulted] mortgage.”
