Pope Nicholas V is born Tommaso Parentucelli in Sarzana. The first of the Renaissance popes, he will become known as a Humanist Pope because of the resources he devotes to scholarship and learning. He will create the Vatican Library and invests considerable amounts of money into the translation of Greek literature.

Pope Nicholas V will be more politically astute that many of his predecessors and he will make peace with many political rivals. One, Frederick III, will be crowned emperor in St. Peter's in 1451, the last time such a coronation occurs there.
