Information about Pope John XIX

Pope John XIX ((unknown) - October 1032)

Pope John XIX (Latin: Ioannes XIX) was Pope from May 1024 to his death in 1032.

He was said to have been killed by a mob of angry peasants, but there is no evidence to support this. The actual cause of death is unknown.

After John XIX's death, his nephew Pope Benedict IX was found as a successor, although he was still young; according to some sources, he was only 12, but he was more likely to have been about 18 or 20.

The next Pope named John was Pope John XXI (1276 -77); there is no Pope John XX.
