Popes of the Roman Catholic Church

Of the 266 Popes there has been only one English Pope, Nicholas Breakspear, who became Pope Adrian IV (1154 – 1159) but no American Pope.

Pope Francis, selected in 2013, was the first Pope born outside Europe since St. Gregory III (who was Pope from 731 to 741) and first from the Americas and indeed, from the Southern Hemisphere. Born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in 1936 in Argentina. Pope Francis was the first Jesuit to become Supreme Pontiff.
