After the death of Pope John Paul II on April 2, 2005 in Vatican City, and before official invitations were sent by the College of Cardinals, almost 200 countries expressed interest in sending representatives to the funeral of Pope John Paul II. The funeral took place on April 8, 2005, and was one of the largest gathering of statesmen and world leaders in history until the 2013 state funeral of Nelson Mandela.WEB,weblink Scores of Leaders Heading to South Africa for Service, Kulish, Cowell, N, A, 9 December 2013, 14 January 2015, NYC Times, Some of the dignitaries later attended the installation of Pope Benedict XVI on April 24, 2005.In order to accommodate all interested parties wishing to receive a seat during the Mass of Requiem, the Holy See limited the number of members in each official diplomatic delegation to five people, except for the Polish delegation which, being John Paul II's homeland, was allowed ten people, and the delegation from Italy. The limit did not exclude other people of any nationality from attaining individual invitations, unrelated to the individual's country's delegation: for example, the attendance of Fernando Henrique Cardoso, former president of Brazil, had no connection with the Brazilian delegation. In addition to a country's official delegation, any number of government officials were permitted to attend as pilgrim travellers, remaining outside the basilica during the Mass of Requiem with the general public. For example, the United States delegation included the president and first lady, two former presidents, and the secretary of state, and they all had seats in the basilica during the Mass of Requiem. Dozens of members of the Congress of the United States attended the Mass of Requiem, congregating among the general public outside the basilica.At the funeral, the dignitaries were seated alphabetically according to the French spelling of their country's nameWEB,weblink Pope Seating Chart Easy As ABC, CBS News, Vries, Lloyd, 8 April 2005, 14 January 2015, and arranged according to diplomatic protocol.10 royalty leaders, 80 past and present heads of state, 75 governmental leaders and numerous dignitaries from 18 multilateral organizations, 15 religious movements and 112 countries attended this Mass.{| id="toc" border="0"! {{MediaWiki:Toc}}:| {{clear}}

Notes

  1. {{note|China}} "China" used here refers to the Republic of China (ROC) and commonly known as Taiwan, rather than the People's Republic of China (PRC), which does not have diplomatic relations with the Holy See and did not receive any invitations to the funeral. Although the ROC Government lost control of Mainland China at the end of the Chinese Civil War, the Holy See still recognizes the ROC, but not the PRC, as the legitimate representative for the government of "China". weblink
  2. {{note|Monaco}} The low representation of Monaco is due to the death of Rainier III, Prince of Monaco. Monaco's head of state died two days before the funeral of the Pope.
