  Antipope - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
These antipopes were usually in opposition to a specific person chosen by the papal electors (since the Middle Ages, the College of Cardinals).
The earliest antipope, Hippolytus, was elected in protest against Pope Callixtus I by a schismatic group in the city of Rome in the 3rd century.
The period when antipopes were most numerous was during the struggles between the Popes and the Holy Roman Emperors of the 11th and 12th centuries.

Antipope Felix II Antipope Felix II Felix II is generally considered an antipope rather than a pope.
Felix's election was contrary to the wishes both of the clergy and of the people, and the consecration ceremony was performed by certain prelates belonging to the court.
In the reign of Gregory XIII, the claim of Felix to rank among the popes was discussed, and in order to discover whether any miraculous help was to be found to aid in the decision of the question, his sarcophagus was opened.

 antipope --  Britannica Concise Encyclopedia - Your gateway to all Britannica has to offer!
Some antipopes were elected by factions in doctrinal disagreements, and others were chosen in double elections arbitrated by secular authorities or picked as third candidates in an effort to resolve such disputes.
During the Investiture Controversy, Henry IV appointed an antipope, and several more antipopes claimed the papal office over the next 200 years as a result of disputed elections or further struggles with secular rulers.
The principal age of the antipope came after the papal court was moved from Rome to Avignon in the 14th century (see Avignon papacy), an event that led to the Western Schism of 1378–1417.

He was a prominent member of the council of Basel, and, together with Cardinal Julian, led the party which maintained the supremacy of general councils over the pope's authority.
Eugenius retorted by excommunicating the antipope and depriving Aleman of all his ecclesiastical dignities.
In order to make an end of the schism, Felix V. finally abdicated on Aleman's advice, and Nicholas V.,who had succeeded in 1447, restored the cardinal to all his honors and employed him as legate to Germany in 1449.

 The Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church - Papal elections - XV Century
The adherence of these two cardinals to the Council of Basel and to the Antipope Felix V can be explained in one case by conviction and in the other by dynastic alliance.
In contrast, Hugues Lancelot de Lusignan attached himself firmly to the cause of Felix V, the former Amadeo VIII, duke of Savoy, because the new antipope's son, Ludovico, duke of Savoy (1434-1465) was married to the cardinal's sister, Anne of Cyprus.
Felix V, like others in his position, quickly created out of whole cloth, as it were, a college of cardinals of his own.

1566 A.D. Cardinal Michele Ghislieri becomes the 225th successor of Peter, choosing the name Pope Pius V who would not only excommunicate Queen Elizabeth of England for her persecution of Catholics, inspire a Christian victory over the Saracens at Lepanto, and decree the use of the Roman Missal, but also become a saint.
It was Saint Pius V who proclaimed that the Mass approved at the Council of Trent should be said "in perpetuity." That statement has caused much consternation between old-line and new-line Catholics over the Novus Ordo Mass since Vatican II.

Convoked by Pope Martin V in 1431, closed at Lausanne in 1449.
Cardinal Cesarini was named president of the assembly by Martin V. The objections to the council were numerous but the real breach occurred when it proposed to reform the Roman chancery without consulting the pope, who therefore transferred the council to Ferrara, despite the continuous sittings of the recalcitrants under Cardinal Louis Aleman at Basel.
Exasperated, they subjected the authority of the pope to general councils, pretended to depose the ruling Pope Eugenius IV, and elected as antipope, Felix V.

In 1434 he was appointed maistre de chappelle in Savoy, where he served Amadeus VIII of Savoy ; evidently he left Rome because of a crisis in the finances of the papal choir, and to escape the turbulence and uncertainty during the struggle between the papacy and the Council of Basel.
In 1444 his mother Marie died, and was buried in the cathedral; and in 1445 Dufay moved into the house of the previous canon, which was to remain his primary residence for the rest of his life.
After the abdication of the last antipope (Felix V) in 1449, his own former employer Duke Amédée VIII of Savoy, the struggle between different factions within the Church began to heal, and Dufay once again left Cambrai for points south.

Felix V was the last antipope, and he clung to the antipapacy for ten years!
Disadvantages: Antipopes are not as scary-cool-evil as the Antichrist, as they're just popes who didn't make the cut (it's not like they run the Anticatholic Antichurch in the Antivatican, are enthusiastically in favor of birth control and gay sex, etc.).
