A pope about whom little is known, Romanus was born near Rome in Civita Castellum and was cardinal priest at St. Peter-in-Chains when elected to the papacy in August, 897. He reburied Formosus and revalidated his ordinations. Romanus was deposed in November, 897 and may have served as a monk from then until his death.
