Pape Gregory III (Laitin: Gregorius III; died 28 November 741) wis Bishop o Roum frae 11 Februar 731 tae his daith in 741.[2] His pontificate, lik that o his predecessor, wis disturbed bi the iconoclastic controversy in the Byzantine Empire, an bi the ongangin advance o the Lombards, in which he invoked the intervention o Charles Martel, awtho ultimately in vain. He wis the 5t Sirian pape an the 10t an last pape born ootside o Europe till the election o Pape Francis in 2013, which wis 1,272 years later.
