Stephen X Quiz

(Stephen X is referred by his baptismal name for the times before he became pope. Stephen X was known as Stephen IX during the time when he was pope. On 23 March 752 a priest was elected pope who took the name Stephen II. He died on 25 March 752 without being consecrated and hence not considered as pope. He was considered as pope in the 16th century and that led to confusion of numbers of popes who subsequently took the name Stephen.)
