I moved to Hive. You can read all my content there.
Due to a sad series of events steem is no longer decentralized nor censorship-resistant.
I don't know how it will look like in the future but right now it's more like a personal database than a proper blockchain.

On Pope Benedict IX
He was an awful guy; Made it to 'office' 3 times; He changed the course of Europe. WOW.

thanks for the additional source
When I was a child, I was reading a lot about royale families and popes, and remembered the fact we had some popes who where really young. BTW, at those time many popes had a LOT of children, officially not, but people knew, and they still could continue their 'job' as pope, or even become pope. Also interesting to know: popes had GREAT GREAT influence on the Kings around Europe and planning wars amongst each other (all the crusades), or kills of certain people; all to keep power of the church and personal power on all what was happening in Europe.
The eternal fight for power...
