*************** Pope Paul III **************

Pope Paul III (February 29, 1468 November 10, 1549), born Alessandro Farnese, was Pope of the Roman Catholic Church from 1534 to his death 1549. He also called the Council of Trent in 1545. He was the first pope to appoint cardinals in pectore.

Born in Canino, Latium, Italy, on the peculiar day of February 29, Farnese was descended through his mother from the Caetani family, which had also produced Pope Boniface VIII (12941303).

He was one of the few Popes to have fathered children before his election, one of whom he created Duke of Parma.
