Alderano Cybo (sometimes Alderano Cibo) (16 July 1613 – 22 July 1700) was an Italian Catholic Cardinal.[1]

Early life[edit]

Cybo was born 16 July 1613 in Genoa and went to Rome at an early age as prelate to Pope Urban VIII.

Ecclesiastic career[edit]

On 6 March 1645, Cybo was elevated to Cardinal by Pope Innocent X and was appointed Cardinal-Priest of Santa Pudenziana. In 1656 he was appointed Bishop of Jesi; a position he held until he resigned in 1671.
