Pope Valentine (827) – The reign of Pope Valentine lasted a little over one month. He was a unanimous choice for pope, but there is nothing historically documented regarding his actions as pope. It is a shame that this milestone papacy had to be so brief and that any ecclesiastical initiatives by the pope are unknown.

It may be assumed that Pope Valentine was buried in the Basilica of Saint Peter.
