Pope Honorius IV dies. Pope Honorius IV had an undistinguished and unremarkable pontificate. The one thing that was remarkable about him is that he was the last pope to have once been married. He even had two sons, but after his wife died he entered the priesthood.

He was popular with the people of Rome and was a strong supporter of religious orders, especially the Dominicans and and the Franciscans. He also worked, unsuccessfully, to achieve some measure of reunification between the Western and Eastern churches.
