Pope Alexander, II
Birth: unknown
Milan
Provincia di Milano
Lombardia, Italy
Death: Apr. 21, 1073, Vatican City

Roman Catholic Pope. Born Anselmo Baggio in Milan, Italy, he was elected to the papacy in 1061. He opposed lay investiture and was enthroned without the consent of Henry IV, Holy Roman Emperor, who then created his own anti-pope. Alexander was accused in 1064 of buying the papacy but cleared himself at the Council of Mantua in the same year. (bio by: MC)
