I wrote a book called 'illustrissimi'. It was a book of letters I wrote to (mostly) dead or fictional people including Goethe, Hippocrates, and Pinocchio
I once played a chocolate piano in public.
I lost my job as Pope after a month. So I spent my last couple of years as a deacon in Hamburg.
I was beheaded while saying mass. The church kept the blood-stained chair for centuries afterwards.
My coffin used to be in a really sweet spot under the altar of St. Sebastian in St. Peter's Basilica. In 2011 they moved me to make way for John Paul II's more popular coffin.
I commissioned the Sistine Chapel ceiling. I founded the Swiss Guard. Popes had not had beards for centuries until I came along. I brought back beards. I was a brilliant pope.
I excommunicated Queen Elizabeth I.
As Pope, I tried to get a 13 year old boy promoted to Cardinal. A grown up Cardinal told me off for this, to my face. When I died they made that guy pope.
I was the first pope to openly accept the theory of evolution.
'Miserere' by Allegri was secret Vatican music only performed twice a year. At age 14 Mozart memorised it in one sitting and leaked it. I knighted him.
I was the first pope to visit the Holy Land since Peter.
While two other popes were arguing over who was the real pope I was, somehow, elected pope. The Vatican still says I was not a pope but an 'antipope'. Most people aren't sure.
No other pope has picked my name for their Pope name for over six hundred years. I still hope that it will make a comeback.
I was the first Cistercian to become Pope. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. GO CISTERCIANS!!!!.....i mean ssshhhhhhh....cistercians.
I spoke out strongly against fascism and anti-semitism. There is a big glacier named after me in Chile.
A year after I died Pope Stephen VI had me dug up, dressed in Papal robes, and put on trial for perjury and becoming Pope illegally. My corpse was found guilty and executed.
