"... the German emperor" ... is not quite right simply because there was
not such thing like a "German Reich" at that time.
Actually a lot of settlers had to flee to get to Banat because they did
not get the permission to leave from their landlords. Some who applied
got a certificate that their landlord - who actually "owned them" let
them go ...

The 1. "Deutsche Reich" was installed only in 1871.
