Pope Martin, V
Birth: 1368
Genazzano
Provincia di Roma
Lazio, Italy
Death: Feb. 20, 1431, Vatican City

Pope. Born Oddone Colonna, successor of Gregory XII. He was created cardinal by Innocent VII, elected Pope unanimously on St Martins Day, in a conclave composed of twentythree cardinals and thirty delegates from the five different nations of the council. Martin V was a vigorous man, virtuous, able, and gracious. He needed all his good qualities, for the difficulties he faced were immense. Though the schism had ended, it left a rich legacy of evils. At first he could not even get to Rome, but by skillful diplomacy he entered the city in 1420. He found it in dreadful shape and worked hard to restore it. (bio by: MC)
