Clement settled in Avignon France in 1309. Until this time all Popes had resided in Rome. Avignon would be the home of the Popes until 1378, with but one brief exception. This period at Avignon is often referred to as the "Avignon Captivity." Seated in Avignon, Clement and the other Avignon Popes would keep their hands on the controls of Rome through the use of Vicars. Pope Clement V was born Bertrand de Got in 1264 CE at Villandraut in Gascony. He was crowned as Pope in Lyons, about a year after the death of Pope Benedict. De Got was a friend of King Philip of France, but at the same time had been a strong supporter of Pope Boniface VIII, who was an enemy of Philip's. The King of France had publicly burned Boniface's Papal Bull, Unam Sanctum which gave the Pope absolute power over everything.
