TOO MUCH, TOO YOUNG 1032 BENEDICT IX IS INAUGURATED
Usually, one stint in the Vatican is enough, but the notorious Benedict IX was pope three times. Known for his profligacy, he was given the papacy perhaps as young as 12. The locals tired of him, and drove him out in 1045. He then sold his position to his godfather. However, he would be the leader of the Catholic Church twice more.
