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