Pope Gregory XIII - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography (632 words)
Gregory XIII, born Ugo Boncompagni (January 7, 1502 – April 10, 1585) was pope from 1572 to 1585.
The work with which the name of Gregory XIII is most honorably associated is that of the reformation of the calendar, producing the Gregorian calendar with the aid of priest/astronomer Christopher Clavius.
Gregory XIII had no connection with the plot of Henry, Duke of Guise, and his brother, Charles, Duke of Mayenne, to assassinate Elizabeth in 1582, and most probably knew nothing about it beforehand.
