Pope Stephen IX (X) dies. The reign of Stephen IX was short, but he was a strong supporter of reforming the church and this created opposition from a variety of powerful forces. He enforced, for example, Gregorian reforms regarding papal celibacy and this wasn't very popular.

When he was elected pope he was already abbot of the Monte Cassino, a position which he never gave up.
