The main character of the drama series The Young Pope Season 2, forty-seven-year-old Lenny Belardo, was initially perceived by others as a person with an uncompromising, rather complex character and a special disposition. Having his own personal view of the faith and the Catholic Church, he is by no means afraid to promote new reforms, which for many seem like a real religious revolution.
When Lenny was elected to a high position in the church hierarchy, he was named Pope Pius XIII, as a result of which he becomes the youngest cardinal in the history of the church to hold this position. It was not easy for him to get this high title, all the more so, and the hero himself put a lot of effort into his elevation, when he constantly weaved cunning intrigues and arranged unimaginable political traps for the same competitors. Although, everyone agreed with the opinion that the new cardinal was a truly far-sighted and uncompromising figure. But Belardo himself had an amazing intuition, allowing him to foresee any moves of his opponent, easily and without regret, getting rid of people he did not like. That's just such a warehouse of character, mind and methods of further government, forced others to disagree with his methods of government. As a result, the opposition starts a war against Belardo, using any available methods against him. They set themselves, the only idea, to get rid of the opponent and overthrow him from his post. However, the opponents miscalculated in their hopes of an easy victory, and Lenny starts his own game, forcing the enemies to make more mistakes.
