Foix, Pierre De
Foix, Pierre de cardinal and archbishop of Aries, was born in 1386. Pope Benedict XIII sent him as a legate to the Council at Constance, and he greatly promoted the cause of Martin V, who, after his election, sent him as his legate to the king of Aragon. In 1429 he convened a council at Tortosa, and the then pending differences were harmonized by him. In 1457 he attended the provincial council at Avignon. He died in 1464.
