Benedetto II Caetani
During his early life he was canon of the cathedral chapter of Anagni, a short distance to the south-east of Rome.
He died on 14 December 1296 or 1297. (Sources differ.) He was buried in the chapel of S. Boniface IV within the Vatican Basilica, but in 1606 his remains were removed to the grotto of the newly rebuilt basilica and placed next to those of his uncle, the pope.
