Funimation describes Izetta: The Last Witch:

Set in an alternate Earth on the eve of the 2nd World War, the story of Shūmatsu no Izetta follows Izetta, the last surviving member of a clan of witches that possesses the ability to magically manipulate any object that they touch. Izetta pledges to help protect Princess Fine and the tiny Alpine kingdom of [Eylstadt] from invasion by the imperialistic forces of Germania.

The anime stars (Note: official name spellings aren't confirmed.):

Himika Akaneya (PriPara franchise's Laala) as Izetta, a descendant of a clan of witches who had passed down mysterious powers for generations.
