I do believe that the CSA was recognized by Spain and the Papal States.  Am not sure of any others. And one of the reasons for the Emancipation Proclamation was to preclude recognition by England and France.



I've heard of something to do with so-called recognition from the Vatican. The only evidence I've seen is some letter written by the Pope to Richmond. Not sure that makes it official. Even if it was, I'm not sure how significant it would be coming from Vatican City.

I've never heard of them being recognized by Spain. 

I guess there was a very tiny country (the name escapes me), that did recognize the Confederacy.
