As Pope he was a severe disciplinarian, discountenanced the pomp and luxury of the cardinals, introduced considerable reforms in the administration of justice, and liberally patronised learning. His pontificate witnessed one of the last flickers of crusading zeal in the expedition of Peter I of Cyprus (1358–69), who took Alexandria on (October 11, 1365), but soon afterwards abandoned it. The great feature of Urban V's reign was the effort to restore the Papacy to Italy, and to suppress its powerful rivals for the temporal sovereignty there. In 1363 he excommunicated Bernabo Visconti, and ordered a crusade to be preached throughout Italy against him and his kindred, the robbers of the church's estate; but in the following year he found it necessary to purchase peace by removing his ban and making other humiliating concessions. Peter I of Cyprus (1328-17 January 1369) was King of Cyprus since his fathers abdication on him on 1358 till 1369. ...

Continued troubles in Italy caused Urban V to set out for Rome, which he reached on October 16, 1367; but, though he was greeted by the clergy and people with joy, and had the satisfaction of being attended by the Emperor in St. Peter's, and of placing the crown upon the head of the Empress, it soon became clear that by changing the seat of his government he had not increased its power. Unable any longer to resist the urgency of the French cardinals, he took ship again at Corneto on September 5, 1370, and, arriving at Avignon on the 24th of the same month, died on December 19, 1370. He was succeeded by Pope Gregory XI (1370–78). His canonization was demanded by Valdemar IV of Denmark (1340–75) and promised by Pope Gregory XI as early as in 1375, but did not take place owing to the disorders of the time. Urban V's cultus was approved by Pope Pius IX (1846–78) in 1870.

CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Pope Bl. Urban V (1824 words)
Urban refused this request as well as another for the nomination of four cardinals chosen by the king.
Urban's efforts were equally fruitless in Italy, where the whole land was overrun with bands led by such famous condottieri as the German Count of Landau and the Englishman Sir John Hawkwood.
Urban V was a man whose motives cannot be called in question: his policy aimed at Eurpoean peace; shortly before his death he had given orders that preparations should be made to enable him personally to visit and reconcile Edward III and Charles V.
