Clement X

Clement X

Pope (Emilio Altieri), was born at Rome on the 13th of July, 1590, and held the papal chair from 1670 to 1676. Eighty years old at his accession, he was completely governed by his relations, one of whom, Cardinal Paluzzi, was called by the Romans pope de facto. He was always eager to mediate peace between the Roman Catholic states, and supported the Poles with money against the Turks. In his reign commenced the dispute with Louis XIV of France concerning the rights claimed by the French kings, during the vacancies of episcopal sees, to dispose of the ecclesiastical benefices, and to receive the revenue. — Ranke, Hist.
