Executive summary: Roman Catholic Pope, 931-936

John XI, Roman Catholic Pope from 931 to 935, was the son of Marozia and the reputed son of Pope Sergius III. Through the influence of his mother he was chosen to succeed Pope Stephen VIII at the early age of twenty-one. He was the mere exponent of the purposes of his mother, until her son Alberic succeeded in 933 in overthrowing their authority. The pope was kept a virtual prisoner in the Lateran, where he is said to have died in 935, in which year Leo VII was consecrated his successor.

Father: Pope Sergius III
