The Life of a Court Jew

After their banishment from the large towns in the 15th and 16th centuries, Jews found refuge in the rural areas of Southern and Western Germany and became traders and so mediators between the town and the countryside.

Some rose to become "court Jews" and funded the financial requirements of the extravagant rulers. As their position was always envied, their livelihood was under constant threat.
