Marozia (de TUSCULUM) of ROME

     Senatrix & Patria of ROME; aka Maricucca (Marozzia) di CRESCENTII; (her association with the House of CRESCENTII may be confused, this `surname' used ambiguously in that era; Murderer; EVIL)

    External page: She was `from her early youth inflamed by the fires of Venus'; seduced the Pope himself. Not to be outdone, Marozia's mother took a lover, and made him into Pope John X. That Pope turned against the family, but after he forced Marozia to view her husband's murdered and mutilated corpse, Marozia had John X killed (her 2nd husband Guido perhaps personally suffocating the imprisoned Pope); she hand-picked the next three Popes including her own bastard son. As 3rd husband (not counting Pope Sergius III !) she picked the King of Italy, but the wedding was marred by an altercation between groom and bride's teen-age son; this resulted in King Hugh fleeing Rome; Marozia's son became de facto King and took his step-sister as wife. Marozia had a lover, mother's lover, son, grandson, great grandson, and great great grandson, who were all Popes -- surely a record!
