Romanus was Pope from August to November 897.

He was born at Gallese near Civita Castellana.

He was elected to succeed the murdered Pope Stephen VI and was deposed a few months later by one of the factions, which then governed Rome. His short rule was regarded as a virtuous one by the historian Frodoard. He ended his days as a monk, although this may mean simply that he was deposed.[1] His date of death is unknown.
