Clement IX

Clement IX

Pope (Giulio Rospigliosi), was born in 1600 at Pistoja. He was in succession auditor of the Rota, secretary of Sixtus IV, and cardinal, and was elected pope in 1667. He mediated a peace between Louis XIV and Spain, at Aix-la-Chapelle, in 1668. He was upright in his intentions, but easy in disposition. He left his name to the Clementine Peace, a brief pause in the struggle between the Jansenists and Jesuits. He is said to have died of grief at the taking of Candia by the Turks, 1669. — Ranke, Hist.
