The Papal States were a collection of territories under the authority of the Bishop of Rome, the Pope. This secular realm ruled by the highest temporal powers in Europe thrived under the trade and pilgrim trade. In the 16th century the Pope's secular power was under threat from both Spain and France, even the Holy Roman Emperor began to lust for the pretige of Rome.

The Pope's power came from the Church, despite the ambitions of Kings, the Pope owned the most important thing, the souls of their subjects.
