Historically, several systems of international law have existed since antiquity, contemporary international law has its origins in Medieval Europe. Arguably, the most notable historic development was the signing of the Peace of Westphalia 1648 which established an embryonic sovereign state system in Europe. Prior to this agreement, the creation of a sovereign state system had been retarded by the transnational authority of the Pope in spiritual matters and the control of the Holy Roman Emperor in political concerns. In the signature of the peace of Westphalia the Emperor acknowledged restriction of his domination in favour of the territorial autonomy of the various nation states which had previously composed the Empire, whilst simultaneously the treaty recognized the limits of the authority of the Pope.
