Pope. Formosus was born around 816, probably in Rome. He became Cardinal-Bishop of Oporto in 864. He undertook diplomatic missions to Bulgaria and France. Formosus was excommunicated by Pope John VIII for leading the party that opposed John's coronation of Charles the Bald. Later, he was restored and was subsequently elected pope.
