Officially recognized by the Roman Catholic Church, St. Valentine is known to be a real person who died around 270 AD. However, his true identity was questioned as early as 496 AD by Pope Gelasius I.

They pick up Valentine’s story after he began working as a priest. Valentine became famous for marrying couples who were in love but couldn’t get legally married in Rome during the reign of Emperor Claudius II, who outlawed weddings.

The St. valentine who inspired the holiday may have been two different men.
