Answer: Pope Francis I hails from what country?

The Question: Pope Francis I hails from what country?

France
Spain
Argentina
Greece

Jorge Mario Bergoglio, known today as Pope Francis I, isn’t just the first pope from Argentina — he’s the first from South America, the first from the Americas in general, and even the first to hail from anywhere besides Europe. So it makes sense that he is also the first pope to take his name from the venerated St. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226), the patron saint of animals and the environment.

The correct answer is Argentina.
