Pope Pius II (18 October 1405 – 14 August 1464), born Enea Silvio Bartolomeo Piccolomini, was Pope from 1458 to his death. He was a noted Renaissance humanist and the author of numerous writings.

A year after his election in 1459, Pius II raised his native town to city status and Episcopal residence, under the new name Pienza, derived from Pius. He undertook an extensive program, in which he asked the architect Bernardo Rossellino to make Pienza a model city of the Renaissance. However, his death in 1464 brought a premature end to his operations, though he did have time to build both a papal palace and a cathedral.

In 2012, the Assassin Shaun Hastings kept a portrait of Pius at his work station while researching the Renaissance Papacy.
