Pope Paul V is born Camillo Borghese in Rome. A member of the powerful Borghese family, he will receive an excellent education and rise quickly in the ranks of the Catholic Church.

He will be considered an ideal candidate for the papacy because he will not be attached to any particular political faction within the Church or Roman society.

Politically, however, Pope Paul V will have few friends — and he won't make very many, either. This may be due to the fact that his education is primarily legal, giving him an outlook more like that of a lawyer than a diplomat.
