Alexander IV, pope (d.1261)

Biography
Kelly, Oxford Dictionary of Popes, 193-94: Alexander was born Rinaldo, count of Segni, and was a nephew of Gregory IX, who created him cardinal-deacon of St Eustace's in 1227 and in 1231 was made cardinal-bishop of Ostia, being consecrated in 1235. He was elected to succeed Innocent IV on 7 or 12 December 1254 and died on 25 May 1261 at Viterbo. He was the son of Filippo, Conti di Jenne, and was born around 1185 in Jenne, near Rome. He was educated at Paris and received his doctorate before 1221. He might have been a Franciscan or Benedictine. He was a subdeacon before being created cardinal deacon in September 1227. He was Camerlengo of the Holy See in 1227. He was dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals in 1244. He was also a papal legate in Viterbo, Lombardy, Ferentino and other places. He is buried in the cathedral of St Lorenzo in Viterbo. [http://www.fiu.edu/~mirandas/bios1227.htm#Conti]
