Stadion was a statelet of the Holy Roman Empire, located around Thannhausen in the present-day Bavarian administrative region of Swabia, Germany.
The Swabian Stadion dynasty was first mentioned in the area of Oberstadion in the 13th century. John Philipp of Stadion (1652–1741), civil servant of the Mainz archbishops, was elevated to the rank of a Freiherr (Baron) in 1686. In 1705, he acquired the immediate lordship of Thannhausen and thereby was raised to a Reichsgraf. Upon his death in 1741, the estates were partitioned between the lines of Stadion-Thannhausen and Stadion-Warthausen.
