Tiara of Pope Pius X
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (July 2008)|
The new tiara, the only tiara he received in his reign, was given to him in 1908.
It was manufactured for the pope because Pius complained that the normal tiaras worn by his predecessors, the Palatine Tiara, and his particular favourite, the Tiara of Pope Gregory XVI, were all too heavy and uncomfortable to wear.
Records suggest that the Tiara of Pope Pius X was rarely worn by his successors.
The tiara is now on view, with the others, in the Papal Treasury in the Vatican.
