Valentine, (in Latin: "Valentinus"), pope for thirty or forty days in 827, was a Roman by birth, and, according to the "Liber Pontificalis", was first made a deacon by Paschal I (817-824). The entries in the "Liber Pontificalis" at this date are contemporary, added shortly after the death of each pope, and, so, although reflecting biases of the authors, they are at least reasonably accurate. Nothing further is known of Valentine's history.
