Executive summary: Roman Catholic Pope, 1046-47

Clement II, given name Suidger, became pope on the 25th of December 1046. He belonged to a noble Saxon family, was Bishop of Bamberg, and chancellor to the emperor Henry III, to whom he was indebted for his elevation to the papacy upon the abdication of Pope Gregory VI. He was the first pope placed on the throne by the power of the German emperors, but his short pontificate was only signalized by the convocation of a council in which decrees were enacted against simony. He died on the 9th of October 1047, and was buried at Bamberg.
