Swiss hostility towards Konstanz led to the ‘Plappart War’ of 1458, followed by papal excommunication of Archduke Sigismund of Austria in 1460, which provided the context for Swiss occupation of the Thurgau, which was administered as a second common lordship. But there was legal disagreement over the territorial bailiwick, which fell to the Swiss, and the territorial court, which remained with Konstanz. Any attempt to create a uniform territory in the Thurgau was further hampered by the presence of local jurisdictional lords with sovereign rights, who refused to swear allegiance to the Swiss. The Swiss also faced revived Habsburg power north of the Rhine in Swabia.
