|194th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church
22 October 1303 - 7 July 1304
Niccolò di Boccasio was born in Treviso to Boccasio, a municipal notary (died 1246), whose brother was a priest; and Ber(n)arda, who worked as a laundress for the Dominican friars of Treviso. Niccolò had a sister, Adelette. The family lived outside the walls of Treviso, in a suburb called S. Bartolommeo. In 1246, a Dominican friar left a sum of money in his will to Bernarda and her children, recently orphaned. A condition was that if Niccolò were to enter the Dominican Order he would receive half of the entire legacy. From the age of six, it seems, Niccolò was destined for the monkish life. His first teacher was his uncle, the priest of S. Andrea.
I have put Treviso in the Republic of Venice however, it didn't become part of that Republic until after a Scaliger domination in 1329-1339.  I'm not sure of where it's allegiance was at the time of Niccolò's birth in 1240. Once the history of Treviso has determined the correct locality then change Republic of Venice to the correct term.
