The Papal State, also known as the Church State or Ecclesiastical State, is the state entity constituted by the group of territories over which the Holy See exerted its temporal power from 752 to 1870.
The Vatican prestige and influence on the European political scene were huge during the millennium when it existed; its international projection went beyond the territorial limits assigned to it by the historical circumstances in the framework of the Holy Roman Empire, between the Middle Ages and the Modern Age.
The vassalage obligations imposed by the Vatican sometimes influenced important independent states such as the Kingdom of Sicily, the Kingdom of Naples, the Kingdom of England, the Kingdom of France, the Kingdom of Spain, the Kingdom of Portugal, the Crown of Aragon, the Kingdom of Hungary and others states which had a vassalage relationship with the sovereign of the Papal States, i.e. the Pope, to whom various kings and emperors had to bow down.
The Papal State ceased to exist in 1870, conquered, following repeated attacks, by the Italian army (which in the two years 1859-1860 subtracted three papal legations), with the capture of Rome and the subsequent annexation of the fourth legation and the district of Rome.
