John XIII is elected pope after having spent his entire career serving in the papal court. Pope John XIII will, for the most part, be a embarrassment to the Roman Catholic Church and will remain so down through the modern age. His pursuit of women will be so extensive and unashamed that the Latern Palace will become known as a little more than a brothel.

His handling of political disagreements will be equally disastrous, forcing him to ask German emperor Otto I for help0. Otto will manage to restore order in Northern Italy, and in return John is obligated to crown him Emperor in the West on Februrary 2, 962.
