Ordinance of the Brandenburg markgrave about Klaipeda trade, 1619

This ordinance was issued by the Brandenburg Margrave Johann Sigizmundt in 1619. It restricts the trade of Klaipeda (Memel) inhabitants with foreigners. It was based on a complaint by Königsberg (Kaliningrad) residents that merchandise traded between Klaipeda, Gdansk (Danzig) and the Netherlands did not reach Königsberg but was instead transported along another route.
