The Swiss Tagsatzung (German: Eidgenössische Tagsatzung; French: Diète fédérale; Italian: Dieta federale) was the legislative and executive council of the Swiss confederacy from the beginnings until the formation of the Swiss federal state in 1848. It was a meeting of delegates of the individual cantons. Its power was very limited, since the cantons were essentially sovereign.
