  Pope Urban VI - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On March 21, 1364, he was consecrated Archbishop of Acerenza in the Kingdom of Naples, He became archbishop of Bari in 1377, and, on the death of Pope Gregory XI (1370–78), the Roman populace clamorously demanding an Italian Pope, was unanimously chosen (April 8, 1378) by the French cardinals, taking the name Urban VI.
The arrogant and imperious temper of the new Pope, intoxicated by his unexpected fortune, showed itself in ways so intolerable that five months afterwards the majority of the cardinals met at Fondi, and, repudiating their previous action, proceeded to elect Robert of Geneva (September 20), who assumed the title of Clement VII (1378–94).
The measures of Urban VI were not without vigor, but at the same time were characterized by such a want of prudence and self-control as has given rise to the not improbable assertion that he actually was, at times at least, a lunatic.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Pope Urban VI
Urban's ambassadors, doubtless inspired by the French and Limousin cardinals, left Rome too late, when the calumnies concerning the illegitimacy of the pope's election were widespread.
The pope's suspicions were eventually aroused, and in June he requested the three Italian cardinals who had not followed the others to join their colleagues and to try and restore kinder feelings.
Urban might have been a good pope in more peaceful circumstances; but he certainly was unable to heal the wounds which the Church had received during the exile of Avignon.

Pope Paul VI stipulated that only cardinals who have not reached their 80th birthday before the date of the pope's death may enter the conclave, but those over 80 can participate in preliminary meetings.

 Pope Urban VI
Urban VI, given name Bartolommeo Prignano, Roman Catholic Pope from the 8th of April 1378 to the 15th of October 1389, was born at Naples in 1318.
On the death of Pope Gregory XI, who had finally returned to Rome from Avignon, he was elected pope in a conclave held under circumstances of great excitement, owing to popular apprehension of an intention of the French cardinals to elect a French pope and again abandon Rome.
Urban deposed Joanna of Naples (21st of April 1380) for adhering to France and Savoy in support of the antipope, and gave her kingdom to Charles of Durazzo.

 Is Sedevacantism Catholic?  Part 2
For fear of their lives (note this was after the new pope had been elected), they dressed an Italian cardinal in the robes of the pope and presented him to the crowd as the new pope.
Urban appeared to be a very easy-going fellow before being elected to the papacy, but once he was elected he became extremely aggressive in attacking those improperly using the Church.
Even though the true pope had resigned and the council was in place to elect the new pope, it appears that the Holy Ghost’s hand was not to be forced as the new pope wasn’t elected until the chair was truly vacant, due to Gregory’s death.

 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.
Unfortunately, the popes of the last half of the fifteenth century involved themselves in the volatile politics of Renaissance Italy rather than the concerns of an international church.
