Pope Joan


Rumored to be the only female Pope to ever serve, Joan posed as Pope John VIII for two years. However, while riding one day from St. Peter's to the Lateran, she had to stop by the side of the road and supposedly gave birth to a child. Upon discovering the Pope's true gender, the people of Rome tied her feet together and dragged her behind a horse while stoning her to death. Another legend has it that she was sent to a faraway convent to repent her sins.
