Mediatization
In politics and law, mediatisation ( /miːdiətaɪˈzeɪʃən/) (American English: mediatization) is the loss of immediacy, where immediacy refers to the status of persons not subject to a regional lord, but who is subject immediately, and thus only, to a high authority such as to a king, or the Holy Roman Emperor. In a feudal context, mediatisation is the introduction of an intervening level of authority between a reigning lord and his vassal so that the former is no longer the immediate lord of the latter, but rather his lordship is mediated by another.[1] Although the process had been going on since the Middle Ages, the term "mediatisation" was originally applied to the reorganisation of the German states during the early 19th century. In this case, many states that were ruled by vassals immediate to the Holy Roman Emperor
Holy Roman Emperor
became instead vassals of other immediate states
