Edict of Emancipation: Prussia Grants Civil Rights to Jews Hot

Prussia grants full civil rights to Jews with the Edict of Emancipation. First, they are declared full citizens rather than resident aliens. Next, all occupations and academic positions are opened to Jews.

The only caveat is with judicial and administrative offices; that is left to be decided at another time. Jews do, however, have to adopt European-style family names.
