Benedict VIII is installed as pope. He will work hard on behalf of ecclesiastical reforms and wants to improve clerical discipline, but Pope Benedict VIII will be even more heavily involved in military ventures.

In 1016, for example, Pope Benedict VIII will personally take part in a sea battle against the Saracens.

The family of Pope Benedict VIII is deeply involved in Roman political intrigues, and one of the consequences of this will be the 1012 election of an antipope, Gregory VI, through the efforts of enemies of Benedict's family.
