Jacoba, countess of Holland, issued a charter (Privilegie) for management of Delft's administrative and financial affairs, specifying four mayors (burgemeesters) and seven magistrates (schepenen). She specified that a mayor or magistrate should have been a citizen of Delft for at least five years and that on an attempt to buy the office of mayor or magistrate would result in a fine of 100 French crowns.

A Cod, Jacoba was defeated by Johann of Bavaria, a Hook. He granted Delft the rights of free assembly and mintage on June 20, 1418.
