Coptic Popes and Patriarchs of Alexandria

The first Patriarch of Alexandria is said to have been Saint Mark the Evangelist in the 1st century. After the schism at the Council of Chalcedon in the year 451, the Coptic Church, lead by the Patriarchs of Alexandria, was divided from the rest of Christianity, as it is to this day.

The patriarchs have used the title pope (Coptic Ⲡⲁⲡⲁ meaning "father", of Greek origin) since the 3rd century.
