Benedict XIV, antipope

(c.1425-c.1430) Little historically certain is known about this anti-pope. When the antipope Pedro de Luna, died, three of his cardinals elected the antipope Munoz; a fourth cardinal, Jean Carrer, on his own authority elected the antipope Benedict XIV who was recognized by the Count of Armagnac, and who disappeared from history almost immediately.
