The election of Pope Paul II
On the evening
August 28all cardinals present in Rome entered the conclave in Vatican, with the exception of ill Cardinal Torquemada, who joined the rest on the following day.

*Leave Rome only with the consent of the majority of cardinals; the
Italian Peninsulawith the consent of all
*College of Cardinals limited to 24
*New pope limited to one
*Creation of cardinals or advancement of benefices required the consent of the College
The first scrutiny took place on
August 30. Cardinal Pietro Barbo received eleven votes, while the remaining fell to Trevisano and d'Estouteville. [http://www.fiu.edu/~mirandas/election-paulii.htm Francis Burkle-Young “Papal elections in the Fifteenth Century: the election of Paul II] ] On the following accessusBarbo received three additional votes and was elected Pope. He took the name Paul II, [Cardinal Ammanati claimed that Barbo wished at first to be called Formosus ("Beautiful"), but the cardinals objected on the grounds that it might seen as allusion to his good looks. He then changed it to Mark, but cardinals objected again, because "Marco!" was the war-cry of the Republic of Venice. Finally he decided to take the name Paul (L. von Pastor "History of the Popes vol. 4", London 1900, p. 12). F. Bourkle-Young considers this anecdoteuntrue [http://www.fiu.edu/~mirandas/election-paulii.htm] ] and a little bit later protodeacon Rodrigo Borgiaannounced his election to the people of Rome with the ancient formula Habemus Papam. On September 6new pope was solemnly crowned in the steps of the patriarchal Vatican Basilica by Cardinal Niccolò Fortiguerra, priest of the title of S. Cecilia. [Usually the rite of papal coronationwas performed by Cardinal Protodeacon, but Rodrigo Borgia fell ill shortly after the election and was not able to do it. Cardinal Fortigeurra, who arrived to Rome when the election was already accomplished, acted as his substitute. L. von Pastor "History of the Popes vol. 4", London 1900, p. 18]
