Papal States is one of the protectorate of Western Roman Empire. Its other name is Vatican City.  It is the spiritual capital to 1.2 billion Catholic adherents.  During the Middle Ages, it was one of the two highest positions in the feudalism, along with the Western Roman Emperor.  However, after Protestant Revolt, Papacy's influence weakened then became one of the protectorates of Western Roman Empire until now.

As a country with long history, the city itself is the UNESCO world heritage sights.


Holy See's early history starts when its first ruler (Pope) Peter visited Rome to establish Christian Diocese in Rome, the Capital of Roman Empire. He died there after naming his true successor Linus, the Second Bishop of Rome (Pope).
