Papal State, Pius IX, 1846 - 1878
Pius IX was the last pope who was also a secular ruler. As monarch of the Papal States, he ruled over some 3 million people. In 1870, the Papal States were seized by force of arms by the newly founded Kingdom of Italy. The matter was only resolved in international law by the Lateran Treaty agreed in 1929 between the Kingdom of Italy and the Holy See, the latter receiving financial compensation for the loss of the Papal States and Italy recognized the Vatican City State as an independent territorial sovereign entity in International law known as the Holy See. The latter, as before, maintains diplomatic relations with many other states.
