Judicially, a borough or burgh was distinguished from the countryside by means of a charter from the ruling monarch that defined its privileges and laws Common privileges involved trade marketplace, the storing of goods, etc and the establishment of guilds Some of these privileges were permanent and could imply that the town obtained the right to be called a borough, hence the term borough rights German Stadtrecht, Dutch stadsrechten Some degree of self-government, representation by diet, and tax-relief could also be granted Multiple tiers existed; for example, in Sweden, the basic royal charter establishing a borough enabled trade, but not foreign trade, which required a higher-tier charter granting staple right
