Pope Lucius III (1100 - 25 November 1185)

Pope Lucius III, born Ubaldo Allucingoli, reigned from 1 September 1181 to his death in 1185.

After being elected Pope in 1181, he lived at Rome from November 1181 to March 1182, but dissensions in the city compelled him to pass the remainder of his pontificate in exile, mainly at Velletri, Anagni and Verona.

In 1185 preparations began for the Third Crusade in answer to the appeals of King Baldwin IV of Jerusalem. Before they were completed, Lucius III died in Verona.
