(Latin: love God)

Duke of Savoy. Anti-pope with the name Felix V from November 5, 1439 to April 7, 1449. Born in 1383 in Chambery, France; died on November 7, 1451 in Geneva, Switzerland. Married to Mary of Burgundy, with whom he had nine children; she died in 1422. In 1439 he appointed his son regent of his duchy, and withdrew to Ripaille on the Lake of Geneva, where he formed the semi-monastic Order of Saint Maurice. He was chosen pope by the schismatical Council of Basel on November 5, 1439, and crowned there in 1440. Excommunicated by Pope Eugene IV, he received only local recognition. In 1449 he submitted to Pope Nicholas V, thus ending the last papal schism, and was made a cardinal.
