Pope Alexander VIII
Birth: Apr. 22, 1610
Cittą Metropolitana di Venezia
Veneto, Italy
Death: Feb. 1, 1691

Roman Catholic Pope. Born Pietro Vitto Otto Boni in Venice, Italy in 1610, he was elected pope on October 6, 1689 and crowned at the Vatican on the 16th. As pope he governed the Papal State mildly, reducing taxes and making several concessions to farmers. Alexander VIII practiced nepotism, but was, on the other hand, generous with the Church making it a gift of the library of the late Queen Christina of Sweden which he had bought at his own expense. Alexander VIII died in Rome in 1691 and is interred at Saint Peters Basilica. (bio by: Curtis Jackson 🖋 📚 💻)
