The Vatican is a landlocked, independent city state and enclave in Rome, Italy. The Vatican City State, also called the Vatican, acquired independence from Italy in the year 1929 with the Lateran Treaty, and it is a different terrain under the Holy See's "full ownership, special rule, and sovereign authority and jurisdiction," which makes sure the city state's temporal, diplomatic, and spiritual independence.

She was born and raised in Siena and, regardless of her parents' desires, desired dedicate her life to God from an early age. She ended up being a member of the "mantellate," a casual Dominican spirituality group of pious women, mainly widows. Pope Gregory XI's choice to leave Avignon for Rome was affected by her impact. He then dispatched her to Florence to organize a peace treaty.
