Pope Adrian III Biography
Adrian III was pope from 884 to 885. He was born at Rome. He died in 885, at Modena, on a journey to Worms, in modern Germany.

His brief pontificate came during troubled times. He died en route to the Diet of Worms after being summoned by the Frankish King Charles III, The Fat, to settle the succession to the empire and discuss the rising Saracen power. The motives for his veneration are practically unknown, but he was noted for having aided the Romans during a famine. His cult was confirmed in 1891, and his feast day is 8th July.
