Celestine II is elected pope, though he'll only spend a little more than five months on the papal throne before he dies. Born Guido di Castello, he was once a student of Peter Abelard.

Pope Celestine II's most important action will be to provide absolution to King Louis VII of France and remove the interdict under which France had suffered for the previous three years.
