Lando (also known as Landus) was elected pope in either July or August, 913. He died about six months later, in either February or March, 914.

He was born in Sabina, Italymarker. His father was reportedly named Taino. He did not change his name on his accession.

Lando is thought to have had powerful friends who helped him to be elected pope. Little more is known about him. He was the last pope to use a papal name which had not been previously used until Pope John Paul I did so in 1978.

Lando was pope during the Pornocracy, which lasted from 904 to 964.

He was the last pope to have a regnal name not used by a previous pope (unless John Paul I is considered distinct).

Pop culture reference

Art and theory group monochrom dedicated a pop song on their album Carefully Selected Moments to Pope Lando, declaring him "most unimportant pope".
