Executive summary: Roman Catholic Pope, 896-7

Stephen VI (sometimes called Stephen VII), Roman Catholic Pope from May 896 to July or August 897, succeeded Boniface VI, and was in turn followed by Romanus. He is responsible for the exhumation, trial, and condemnation of Pope Formosus in January 897, the so-called "Cadaver Synod." Because of this affair he fell out of favor rather quickly, being imprisoned and later strangled to death.
