Although with the Burgundian Wars the geopolitical balance within the Confederation shifted decisively westwards, the Thurgau remained a constant source of irritation. Various schemes to divide the Thurgau or its revenues between the Swiss and Konstanz were put forward, but these only revealed deep divisions within the Confederation. Then it was mooted that Konstanz itself might join the Confederation, though that proved just as controversial. But the Swiss faced further difficulties from the bishop of Konstanz and the abbot of St Gallen, both of whom had lordships and rights in the Thurgau. Even after the Swiss War, Konstanz’s territorial claims and lordship over subjects continued to be disputed.

Keywords:   Burgundian Wars, division of Thurgau, Konstanz as member of the Confederation, bishop of Konstanz, abbot of St Gallen
