Pope John Paul I

Pope John Paul I (Latin: Ioannes Paulus I), born Albino Luciani (Italian pronunciation: [alˈbino luˈtʃani]; 17 October 1912 – 28 September 1978), was Pope from his election to the papacy on 26 August 1978 to his sudden death 33 days later on 28 September 1978. His 33-day reign is among the shortest in papal history, resulting in the most recent Year of Three Popes, the first since 1605.John Paul I was the first pope to be born in the 20th century and the last pope to die in it.
