The Question: After Italy, most popes come from what country?

France
Germany
Spain
Greece

Of the hundreds of popes who have led the Catholic Church, 217 of them have hailed from the Italian peninsula. Coming in a distant (but still significant) second place, with 16 popes, is France. Once a Catholic kingdom, France enjoyed a cozy relationship with the papacy for centuries — and was even the home of the popes in the 14th century — until the French Revolution forever altered the long-standing relationship.

The correct answer is France.
