Pope John XIV dies in Rome. Because he was chosen to be pope by Emperor Otto II without consultation with anyone else, Otto II was seemingly the only friend or supporter that Pope John XIV had in the world.

Then Otto died not long into John's papacy when his heir, Otto III, was only three years old — much too young to help or protect John XIV.

Antipope Boniface moved quickly and had John imprisoned. Reports suggest that he died of starvation after several months in jail.
