born , Rome?
died , c. September 885, near Modena, Bishopric of Modena [Italy]; canonized June 2, 1891; feast day July 8

      pope from 884 to 885.

      Adrian's brief pontificate came during troubled times. He died en route to the Diet of Worms after being summoned by the Frankish king Charles III the Fat to settle the succession to the empire and discuss the rising Saracen power. His death under dubious circumstances led many to believe that he had been assassinated. The motives for his veneration are practically unknown, but he was noted for having aided the Romans during a famine.
