Formerly Rinaldo de' Conti di Segni , Cardinal Bishop of Ostia and son of Gregory IX and grandson of Innocent III.
The counts of Segni, like Pope Innocent III (1198 - 1216) and Pope Gregory IX (1227 - 1241). His father, Pope Gregory IX made him Cardinal Deacon and Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Church in 1227 and Bishop of Ostia in 1232 (or 1231).
He became Dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals in 1244 (or in 1240). On the death of Pope Innocent IV (1243 - 1254) he was elected Pope at Naples on December 12, 1254.
Alexander IV succeeded Innocent IV as guardian of Conradin, the last of the Hohenstaufen, promising him protection; but in less than a fortnight he conspired against him and bitterly opposed Conradin's uncle Manfred.
Nor could he enlist the Kings of England and Norway in a crusade against the Hohenstaufen. Rome itself became too dangerous for the Pope, who withdrew to Viterbo, where he died in 1261.
On 12th April, 1261, shortly before his death, he granted a papal bull to Henry III of England, absolving him of oaths taken in the Provisions of Oxford, which was instrumental in the Second Barons' War.
He was suceeded by Pope Urban IV (1261-1264).
