'''Theodoric''' was an antipope in 1100 and 1101. Antipope Clement III died on the date of September 8, 1100. His followers in Rome met secretly at night in St. Peter's Basilica and elected and enthroned Cardinal Teodorico, the Bishop Albano, who then went by the name of Pope Theodoric. Forced to abandon Rome, Pope Theodoric was seized 3 1/2 months later and brought before the rightful Pope -- Pope Paschal II -- where he was condemned and declared to be an anti-Pope and then sent to the Monastery of LaCava, Salerno, where he died in 1102, according to the epitaph in the crypt of the monastery.
