Eugene I is elected pope. Showing great deference towards the secular ruling powers. Pope Eugene I only ascends to the papal throne because Emperor Constans exiled his predecessor, Pope Martin I, and Eugene displays no overt acts of defiance against Constans, the patriarchs of Constantinople, or especially their promotion of the heresy of Monothelitism.

Put simply, Pope Eugene I will turn a blind eye towards a major heresy within the Christian church in order to hold on to his job.
