Roman Catholic Pope. Born Nicholas Breakspear in what was the Kingdom of England, he was the only Englishman to be elected to the papacy. Assuming the seat in December 1154, his Pontificate was marked with anti-papal strife in Rome, an alliance forged with the Byzantine Empire, and the Norman invasion of Ireland. He served until his death in September 1159.
