Historical BackgroundEdit

The German term "Hausmacht" describes the hereditary territorial property of a dynasty in a feudal state. The Hausmacht was of great importance in the Holy Roman Empire as the allodial power of a king was dependent on the size of his power. Many German dynasties seeked an expansion of their power and therefore pursued an intensive allodial policy.

The Hausmacht was strengthened through territorial acquisition or strategic marriage.
