1478, May 261523-15341534, Sep 25
Pope for the Roman Catholic Church from 19 November 1523 to his death in 1534. The Sack of Rome and English Reformation occurred during his papacy. During his half-year imprisonment in 1527, Clement VII grew a full beard as a sign of mourning for the sack of Rome. This was in contradiction to Catholic canon law, which required priests to be clean-shaven; however, it had the precedent of the beard which Pope Julius II had worn for nine months in 1511–12 as a similar sign of mourning for the loss of the papal city of Bologna.
