John XI, Pope of Rome
Allegedly the son of Marozia and Sergius III, John was born c. 910 in Rome
and was made pope in 931. After the marriage of Marozia to her
brother-in-law, Hugh of Florence, John's half-brother, Alberic III,
imprisoned their mother in the Castel Sant' Angelo and confined John to
the Lateran until John's death in 935.
