Vatican City State: History and Residences

As there is no general discussion topic about the history of the state of Vatican City I thought of creating one.
In this topic, facts and curiosities about Vatican City and the history of the Popes can be discussed.
Information on the residences of the Popes can also be discussed in this topic.

According to this article the Queen met 5 Popes.

Maybe the article is incorrect.

She's met 8 popes in person? I really didn't know!
