He raised only one man to be cardinal, his cousin Giovanni Boccamazza, archbishop of Monreale, on 22 December 1285.
Giovanni Boccamazza (died 1309) was an Italian Cardinal. He was from the Roman nobility, and was a nephew of Cardinal Giacomo Savelli, who had been an important figure in the Roman Curia since his creation as cardinal in 1261.
On 30 October 1303, a week after his election, Pope Benedict gave the College of Cardinals a gift of 2680 gold florins, 380 livres Tournois, and over 600 other gold coins of various origins and values. These funds were distributed among the Cardinals, including Cardinal Giovanni Boccamazza, except for the Bishop of Ostia, Niccolò Boccasini, who was absent on a Legateship.
Early in the year 1278, Cardinal Guillaume was a member of a committee of three cardinals who examined the canonical election and the personal character of Arnoldus de Villa, Bishop of Dax. The appointment was approved on their recommendation by Pope Nicholas. A similar case, that of Giovanni Boccamazza, the Archbishop-elect of Monreale (and future cardinal), was handled in the summer of 1278.
On 14 May 1264 Giovanni was granted the benefice of the church of S. Fortunato de Vernot in the Diocese of Sens. In 1285 Giovanni's uncle, Cardinal Savelli, was elected Pope Honorius IV. Giovanni Boccamazza began his career in the Church as a Canon of the Vatican Basilica and Chaplain of Pope Nicholas III (1277-1280).
On 4 March 1304 Pope Benedict XI (1303-1304) granted Cardinal Giovanni Boccamazza subinfeudation of three castles, Scandrillia, Castellucii, and Rocca Soldana, which belonged to the Monastery of Farfa by primary infeudation of the Roman Church, along with their tenements and vassals, with full jurisdiction and authority. The properties and their rights would descend to the Cardinal's heirs.
On 5 March 1291 Pope Nicholas granted Cardinal Giovanni Boccamazza the power to investigate and reform the apparently large number of encroachments and illegal occupations made by various persons upon the properties belonging to the Lateran Basilica. The Senators and other magistrates of Rome were ordered to assist the Cardinal in restoring the properties of S. Giovanni Laterano. The same service was imposed on Cardinal Giovanni with respect to the Premonstratensian monastery of S. Quirico "de valle introducti" in the diocese of Reate. He was then empowered to do the same for the Monastery of Farfa.
At the end of 1303, Cardinal Landolfo sat on a committee with Cardinal Giovanni Boccamazza and Cardinal Robert de Pontigny to ascertain the facts in the election of an abbot for S. Maria de Alfiolo in Gubbio. Pope Benedict ratified their decision, quashing the objections of an interested party, on 2 January 1304. Sitting on another committee at the same time, the committee quashed the election of an Archmandrite for the Abbey of S. Elias de Carbone in the diocese of Anglone and the Pope appointed his own choice. Cardinal Landolfo, along with fourteen other cardinals, signed the papal Bull in favor of the Monastery of Santo Spirito in Sulmone. At the end of the reign of Boniface VIII, the Cardinal was entrusted with handling the case of the excommunication of Otto and Conrad of Brandenburg and their followers, who had despoiled various churches and other property, and his recommendations were finally approved by Benedict XI on 12 March 1304. On 17 February 1304 Cardinal Landolfo was granted the privilege by Benedict XI of naming the next Bishop of Viesti (Vestana).
His properties in France, however, were apparently being misappropriated. On 18 December 1303, the new pope, Benedict XI (1303-1304), issued a mandate, instructing several abbots in the dioceses of Bayeux and Amiens, to see to it that the Cardinal's rights and the income from his benefices were protected. The letter specifically states that he was Dean of Bayeux, and that he had canonries and prebends in Bayeux, Amiens, and Paris. At the same time he was appointed by Pope Benedict to be an Auditor in the case of a dispute between the Bishop and the Chapter of Amiens. In January, 1304, he was appointed to be a member of the committee to examine the election of a Bishop of Bamberg, but as soon as the committee was appointed, the bishop-elect resigned his election into the hands of the Pope, and the Pope provided the new bishop. On 14 March 1304, he was one of the fifteen cardinals who subscribed the bull of privileges in favor of the monastery of Santo Spirito in Sulmone in the Diocese of Valva. In February, 1304, the Pope assigned him the trial of facts in a complaint laid by the Abbot and monks of Farfa in the matter of the subinfeudation of Cardinal Giovanni Boccamazza to several castles and their lands, which involved the Monastery of Farfa.
He was made Archbishop of Monreale, near Palermo, by Pope Nicholas III on 15 August 1278. He had not, however, been the original choice as bishop. The Chapter of the Cathedral of Monreale had originally and unanimously chosen Guillaume, Bishop of Potenza, but he declined the position and resigned the election into the hands of the Pope. The matter was referred to the usual committee of cardinals on episcopal elections, in this case composed of Cardinals Latino Malabranca, Guillaume de Bray, and Matteo Rosso Orsini. Nicholas then received the bishop's resignation of the election to Monreale and sought to appoint Bernard de Montemirato, OSB, the Abbot of Montismajoris in the Diocese of Arles. But he flatly refused. Nicholas then chose his Chaplain, Giovanni Boccamazza. He was there at the time of the Sicilian Vespers (1282). It was Cardinal Boccamazza who delivered the news of the Sicilian Vespers to King Charles I After fleeing Sicily, he was made cardinal-bishop of Frascati on 22 December 1285—the only cardinal created by Pope Honorius.
Cardinal Robert de Pontigny participated in the Conclave to elect Pope Benedict's successor. Fifteen cardinals participated in the Conclave, but only ten were in the Conclave for the final vote. The two Colonna cardinals, who had been deposed by Boniface VIII in 1297, were not in attendance. The Conclave began on 17 July 1304. There was, however, no easy decision. The French faction was led by Cardinal Napoleone Orsini, and included Giovanni Boccamazza (Tusculum), Giovanni Minio (Porto), Niccolò Alberti da Prato (Ostia), Landolfo Brancaccio (S. Angelo in Pescheria), Guglielmo Longhi (S. Nicola in Carcere Tulliano), Jean Le Moine (SS. Marcellino e Pietro), Robert de Pontigny (S. Pudenziana), Riccardo Petroni (S. Eustachio), and ultimately Walter Winterburn (S. Sabina). His opponent was another Orsini, Cardinal Matteo Rosso Orsini, whose group is known to have included his nephews Francesco Orsini, (S. Lucia) and Giacomo Gaetani Stefaneschi (S. Giorgio in Velabro), Teodorico Ranieri (Palestrina), Leonardo Patrassi (Albano), Pedro Rodriguez (Sabina), Francesco Caetani (S. Maria in Cosmedin), Gentile Partino (S. Martino ai Monti), and Luca Fieschi, (S. Maria in Via Lata). Archbishop Bertrand de Got, the younger brother of the late Cardinal Bérard de Got, Archbishop of Bordeaux since 1299, and a subject of the King of England, had been nominated by the faction of Cardinal Matteo Rosso Orsini as long as six months before his final election (approximately the first half of December, 1304). Finally, on 5 July 1305, after some dirty tricks, a two-thirds vote in favor of the Archbishop of Bordeaux was achieved. He became Clement V, and was crowned in Lyons on 14 November 1305. He never visited Rome. The Papacy had moved to France.
Pope Gregory X (1271-1276) appointed Cardinal Matteo as "Auditor causarum" (judge) in a dispute involving the holding of benefices by canons in the diocese of Valva. He was also named Auditor in the examination of Bishop-elect Guillaume of Laon by Gregory X, but the illness and death of the Pope, followed by the election of three short-lived popes in 1276 (Cardinal Matteo's third, fourth and fifth Conclaves), deferred the case until Nicholas III settled the matter on 25 May 1278. He performed the same function as part of a commission of cardinals who examined the election and candidate for the diocese of Monreale in Sicily, Giovanni Boccamazza, the nephew of Cardinal Giacomo Savelli. Pope John XXI (1276-1277) appointed Cardinal Matteo to be Assessor in a lawsuit involving the election of an Archbishop of Magdeburg; the case continued to be a problem in 1279. In each case, the election was investigated for its adherence to canon law and the absence of simony, and each candidate was examined for his orthodoxy and moral suitability. In the case of the election of a new Archbishop of Acherenza, Cardinal Matteo was a member of a three-man cardinalatial committee that found that the election had been the subject of undue influence (oppression)and therefore contrary to canon law, and they recommended that it be annulled. He was also a member of the committee that approved the new Archbishop, Peter of Archia. In the case of a double election of an Archbishop of Dublin, which had begun under Gregory X, with Cardinal Simon Paltineri as Auditor, who unfortunately died before the case was decided, John XXI handed the examination to Cardinal Matteo, but after Pope John's death, Pope Nicholas III decided to provide a new Archbishop himself. When the proctors of William de Wickwane, the Archbishop-elect of York, presented his case for confirmation, Cardinal Matteo was one of the examiners, and, on a technicality, the election was quashed. Pope Nicholas, however, immediately appointed Wickwane anyway, using the plenitude of his power as Pope, and granted him the pallium.
As soon as Honorius IV became pope, he was approached by King Rudolf of Germany, King of the Romans, with regard to his coronation as Holy Roman Emperor. This honor had been promised him by Gregory X in 1275, but succeeding popes had not authorized the coronation. Now he approached the new pope through the new Archbishop of Mainz, Heinrich de Isnay, O.Min. (1286-1288). In reply Honorius sent Cardinal Giovanni Boccamazza as Apostolic Legate to Germany, Bohemia, Hungary and Sweden to engage in conversations with Rudolf. Cardinal Giovanni attended the significant synod of March 1287 in Würzburg, considered as a German national council. On 22 July 1287, during the Sede Vacante following the death of Honorius IV (1285-1287), he was at Cambrai, where he issued orders for Dacia and Suecia. While he was at Cambrai the Legate, Cardinal Giovanni was attacked by a nobleman, Nicholas, his brothers and sons, and his retainers, while he was in church. When that attempt failed, they followed him to his house, where there was a riot. The bishop of Cambrai, who held both spiritual and temporal power in the city, was excommunicated by Cardinal Giovanni, and the city was placed under interdict. When Cardinal Giovanni returned to Rome and explained the whole affair to Pope Nicholas personally, the Pope cited the Bishop, the Archdeacon, the Bailli, the Chapter of the Cathedral, and numerous others, to appear before his court in Rome. The case was finally disposed of on 3 October 1291 with the suspension of the Bishop from his pontifical powers and right to collate to benefices for three years. Also, during the same Legatine assignment, Cardinal Giovanni became involved in strife between the Dominicans and the people of Strasbourg, and he felt compelled to lay the city under the Interdict. On 16 September 1287 Cardinal Giovanni was at Clairvaux, and he was still there on 8 November, when he wrote to the Archbishop of Uppsala, Sweden (Suecia), and 6 December 1287, when he wrote to the Dominicans of Hungary and Poland. He wrote from Novaevallis, on 14 December, to all of the clergy in his Legation for the benefit of the Cistercians. He did not, therefore, attend the Conclave of 1287-1288.
