what would have happened if the bishop had not granted them the right to be a city? all the citizens would have to emigrate to china ? ;-))))

Gunter, having city rights, Zwolle was allowed membership of the Hanseatic league (1294), wich brought much prosperity to the town! I am afraid that at that time, China was not known to them.
