  Pope Martin V - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Martin V was widely esteemed for moderation, learning, uprightness and business capacity, but he is not seen as a reforming Pope.
When the "nations" of the council pressed their plans for reform, Martin V submitted a counter scheme, and ultimately entered into negotiations for separate concordats, for the most part vague and illusory, with Germany, England, and France.
It was prorogued for seven years, and then met at Basel; shortly after its opening Martin V died of apoplexy.

 Pope Martin V - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Martin V, né Oddone Colonna or Odo Colonna (1368 – February 20, 1431), Pope from 1417 to 1431, was elected on St.
Martin's Day (November 11) at the Council of Constance by a conclave consisting of twenty-three cardinals and thirty delegates of the council, which after deposing antipope John XXIII (1410–15), had long experienced much perplexity from the conflicting claims of Pope Gregory XII (1406–15) and antipope Benedict XIII (1394–1423).
His first act after his election was to publish a brief confirming all the regulations made by his predecessors with regard to the papal chancery, regulations which had long been the subject of complaint.

He voted in the election of Alexander V in 1409 and of John XXIII in 1410, hoping in each case, as did all men of goodwill, that the choice of the council would prevail and that the two reigning popes, Benedict XIII and Gregory XII, would accept the conciliar decision that they be deposed.
Martin V was not the man to permit such conditions to persist.
It has been said that Martin V was a gentle man, and this judgment seems to be borne out by his many attempts, through correspondence and emissaries, to bring about peace between England and France, engaged at that time in the Hundred Years War.

Pope Eugenius IV became convinced before a year was over that the new Council of Basel was going to be as unproductive as Pavia.

 End of Europe's Middle Ages - The Church
In 1305, Pope Clement V (1305-1314) temporarily moved his court from Rome to Avignon in south-eastern France in an attempt to maintain papal autonomy - thus began the Avignonese or Babylonian Captivity.
Meanwhile, Pope Urban VI appointed new cardinals to fill the French vacancies and, for the next thirty-seven years, the Church was split by the Great Schism which saw papal courts established at both Rome and Avignon.
Yet, despite the democratic flavour of the Council of Constance which placed them in power, Martin V and his successors insisted on the unchallenged authority of the pontificate and the Council of Basel (1431 - 1449) was the last major attempt at conciliarism.

 Chapter 15: A History of Aragon and Catalonia
Pope Martin did his utmost to raise further support for the Duke of Anjou, sending ambassadors to the rulers of Milan, Florence and other Italian towns; but in October Alfonso won a brilliant naval victory off Pisa over the Genoese, who were obliged to place themselves under the supremacy of the Duke of Milan.
The Pope died in 1431, and his successor, Eugenius IV, was not favourably disposed to the claims of Aragon, but Alfonso none the less considered that the situation justified preparation for his enterprise.
Negotiations between himself and the Pope ended in an agreement by which he recognized Eugenius IV as the one and only true head of the Church, and in return was invested by the Pope with the kingdom of Naples, under the same conditions as those under which Charles I of Anjou had held it.

The humiliation that the Pope suffered at the hands of Charles of Anjou was compounded by the increasing polarization among the different political factions in the city of Rome.

 Martin V --  Britannica Concise Encyclopedia - The online encyclopedia you can trust!
A cardinal subdeacon who had helped organize the Council of Pisa in 1409, he was unanimously elected pope on Nov. 11, 1417, in a conclave held during the Council of Constance (1414–18), which had been called to end the Great Schism (1378–1417), a split in the Western church caused by multiple claimants to the papacy.
After the council adopted seven church reform decrees, leaving their execution to Martin, he concluded concordats on other points with the principal countries involved, chiefly methods of taxation and some modifications in favour of national demands for the reform of abuses in the papacy's central bureaucracy.
Martin neglected the opportunity offered by councils for church reform, toward which his own efforts were halfhearted and ineffective.
