Victor IV (Ottaviano de Monticello: Tivoli, 1095 - Lucca, 1164), was antipope of the Catholic Church between 1159 and 1164.

Allied with Federico Barbarossa, refused to acknowledge the Pope Alexander III and with the vote of nine cardinals and with the support of the Ghibellines, he was elected supreme pontiff, ratified at the Council of Pavia (1160) by Barbarossa.

However, at the Council of Beauvais, the majority of the princes of the West recognized Alexander III and Victor IV had to take refuge in Cremona and Lucca.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
