The City

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"City in Ternopil Oblast. For the first time it was mentioned in Ipatiiv chronicles of 1097 as the center of Terebovlians'ke principality which consisted of south-east Galytshyna, Bukovyna and a part of Podillia. In 1389 king Yagailo granted the Magdeburg Right."
Phil Nelson, 7 July 1999

My ancient encyclopedia says, under the heading "Magdeburg", "Magdeburg became a flourishing commercial town during the 13th century, and was an important member of the Hanseatic League..."Magdeburg law" (Magdeburger Recht), securing the administrative independence of municipalities, was widely adopted." Perhaps where the source says "was given Magdeburg right" we should translate "received the right of civic self-government" or something similar.
