Negotiating Investiture

(p.171) 6 Negotiating Investiture
Sui-Tang China and Its Turko-Mongol Neighbors

Jonathan Karam Skaff

Oxford University Press

This chapter studies investiture, which is considered as an aspect of medieval Eurasian diplomacy that is less understood. It begins with discussions of Turko-Mongol investiture, which is a customary aspect of Turko-Mongol politics, Sui-Tang investiture, and case studies of the Western Turks and the Turgish. It then examines the Eurasian practice of investing clients with native titles of nobility, and here it also discusses negotiated relationships and strong and weak attachments. This chapter ends with a section on the formalization of diplomatic relations.

Keywords:   investiture, medieval Eurasian diplomacy, case studies, native titles of nobility, negotiated relationships, attachments, diplomatic relations
