Of return to Germany, pacificó the territory naming to Enrique Leon Duke of Baviera and allowing Enrique Jasomirgott to change its title of Marquess of Austria by the one of Duke. 

The advice of Reinaldo Dassel, chancellor of the Empire, made believe to the emperor who the Pope considered vasallo of the Church, being based on an existing painting in Letrán in which the coronation of Lotario under the inscription imagined "El emperor is done vasallo of the Papa". The painting then was destroyed and enemistad with the Pope began to appear again.

The pretension to limit the power of the Papado exclusively the spiritual sphere faced also the Pope Alexander to him III (1159-1181), successor of Adriano IV, that supported in 1167 the creation of Liga Lombarda, which caused the expulsion of the imperial troops of Italian territory. Federico I recognized like Pope Calixto III (1168-1178). 

In 1174 it resumed by fifth time its attempts of expansion but it was defeated in Legnano (1176) and was forced to accept treaties of Venice (1177) and Constanza (1183), by which it recognized Alexander III like Pope, resigned to its pretensions of dominion on the Pontifical States, recognized the temporary power of the Pontiff and granted autonomy to the cities under its jurisdiction. In return, the excomunión pain rose to him. 

However, its hegemony on extensive territories in the north of Italy followed unquestionable, having annexed Burgundy by means of marriage in the 1156 and tie to the Empire region of Sicily thanks to the wedding (1186) of its son Enrique with Constanza, daughter of the king of that one territory.
