Concession (Konzession), was the document of toleration and admission given the Mennonites in the Palatinate. The first was granted on 4 August 1664 by elector Karl Ludwig, 1648-1680. It was confirmed by each of his successors upon the request of all the Mennonites living in the Palatinate; by Karl, 1680-1685, on 5 December 1682; by Philip William, 1685-1690, on 15 January 1686; by John William, 1690-1716, on 18 February 1698; by Karl Philip, 1716-1743, on 15 July 1717; and by Karl Theodore, 1743-1799, on 27 February 1743. In other countries the term Privilegium was commonly used for the same type of document.
