1655 papal conclave

The 1655 papal conclave was convened following the death of Pope Innocent X and ended with the election of Cardinal Fabio Chigi as Alexander VII. The Conclave quickly reached a Deadlock with Giulio Cesare sacchetti receiving 33 Votes throughout the Conclave but never securing enough Votes to win his own Election. Chigi was elected Pope after several Months of Deliberation and Negotiation when the cardinal mazarin Leader of the french Government consented to chigi's Election at the Request of Sacchetti.
