Hanno (Italian, Annone; c. 1510 – 8 June 1516) was the pet white elephant of Pope Leo X (born Giovanni de' Medici), and the subject of the book "The Pope's Elephant: An Elephant's Journey from Deep in India to the Heart
of Rome" by Silvio A. Bedini. He was the gift of King Manuel I of Portugal on the Pope's coronation, and was later named Hanno by the people in Rome.
King Manuel had either received him as a gift from the King of Cochin, or had asked Alfonso d'Albuquerque, his viceroy in India, to purchase him.
Hanno was said to be white in colour, and arrived by ship from Lisbon to Rome in 1514, aged about four years, and was kept initially in an enclosure in the Belvedere courtyard, then moved to a specially constructed building between St. Peter's Basilica and the Apostolic Palace, near the Borgo Sant'Angelo (a road in the rione of Borgo).
Hanno became a great favourite of the papal court and he was featured in processions, ridden by his care taker Giovanni Batista Branconi dell Aquila, assisted by the stable hand Alfonso.
A street and an Inn was named after Hanno.
Two years after he came to Rome, he fell ill suddenly, was given a purgative, and died on 16 June 1516, with the pope at his side. Hanno was laid to rest in the Cortile del Belvedere at the age of seven.
