Patriarch Nicholas I of Alexandria

Patriarch Nicholas I served as Greek Patriarch of Alexandria between 1210 and 1243.

Nicholas I maintained contacts with Pope Innocent III of Rome, who invited him to participate in the Lateran Synod (1215). Following the Siege of Damietta by the Crusaders, the Christians underwent the most terrible tortures by the Arabs in retaliation. Patriarch Nicholas waited in vain for help from Pope Honorius III of Rome (1216–27). He died in deep poverty.
