The Last Pope To Die Of The Flu Was …
Benedict XV was pope from
September 3, 1914 to January 22, 1922.
He was born November 21, 1854.
He was, thus, 67 when he died in 1922.
He caught a ‘cold’ after standing in the rain, in early January, waiting for his driver.
This cold progressed into a high fever and cough. It is believed to have turned into pneumonia.
He was ill for over two-weeks, the pneumonia not getting any better.
That is what he died of.
