The City

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"City in Lviv Oblast. The settlement appeared in the XVII century when Andrew Tenchyns'kyi issued an order about location of a town named Toporiv (from a family emblem of the Tenchyns'kyis -"Topir" (axe)).On the 24th of February it was given 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.
