Manuscript letter from Emilia von Sachsen, the subject of a Lucas Cranach portrait and third wife of Margrave George the Pious of Brandenburg-Ansbach. Written on the first and last pages of a four page bifolium, castellated watermark, the text runs to about 30 lines and concerns the Markgravine's decision to waive the rent on a house in the town inhabited by her servant Christoff Kaisse. The paper has been almost invisibly laid down on silk and is in very good condition apart from browning and old folds. The Margrave signs herself with the spelling 'Emilia'; she was her husband's third wife - both were painted by Lucas Cranach and early adopters of Lutheranism.
