Italian ecclesiastic and Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, elected Pope on 5/16/1605. Formerly an attorney, he was made a Cardinal by Pope Clement VIII in 1596 as a political favor. When he became pope, he practiced blatant nepotism (as was the custom) and his family all became rich. He died 1/28/1621.
