Alexander III, pope (d.1181)

Biography
Kelly, Oxford Dictionary of Popes, 176-77: Alexander, born Orlando Bandinelli around 1100, was from a noble Sienese family; his father was called Ranuccio. He was a professor of law in Bologna and a canon of Pisa before going to Rome in 1150, where he was created cardinal-deacon, then cardinal-priest of S. Mark, and was then made papal chancellor in 1153. He was elected successor to Adrian IV on 7 September 1159 and was consecrated on 20 September at Ninfa, south-east of Velletri, by the bishop of Ostia. He died on 30 August 1181 at Cività Castellana, north of Rome. He was buried in the Lateran.
