Pope Marcellus, II
Birth: May 6, 1501
Provincia di Macerata
Marche, Italy
Death: May 6, 1555, Vatican City

Roman Catholic Pope. Born Marcello Cervini Degli Spannochi, he was nown as a man of integrity, tact and ability. He was made cardinal in December 1539 by Pope Paul III, for whom he served in numerous politico-ecclesiastical missions. With Cardinal Giovanni Maria Ciocchi del Monte (later Pope Julius III) and Cardinal Reginald Pole, he presided at the Council of Trent in 1545. Pope Marcellus II had a high reputation for integrity, tact and ability. He began his papacy working for reform; he was so opposed to nepotism that he forbade his nephews to even come to Rome. His health was very poor, however; the strain of the ceremonies were too much for him, and he lived only 22 days after his election. (bio by: MC)
