De Palatio, Octavian, Archbishop of Armagh, a Florentine, was advanced to the see by Sixtus IV. in 1480. He was one of the few dignitaries of the Pale that opposed the coronation of Simnel, and maintained unshaken loyalty to Henry VII. He held numerous provincial synods. De Palatio died at an advanced age, in June 1513, having governed his see thirtythree years, and was buried in St. Peter's Church, Drogheda.
