From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pope John VI of Alexandria was the Coptic Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark (1189 - 1216).

In 1210, his envoys reached the city of Lalibela in Ethiopia, where they met Emperor Gebre Mesqel Lalibela.[1]

He was the last Coptic Pope to ordinate a bishop for Western Pentapolis as the people converted to Islam under the rule of the Arabs.
