Mrs John Paul II

Was Pope John Paul II married? With a UK-resident wife and adult children with criminal records? There is a passing reference at the bottom of this obituary page, and more here (referring to the beautiful Fawley Court, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, and its museum of Polish history). For a head-spinner, see this from the same thread. A pope with a colorful past could be easily controlled, which might explain why he was picked to follow his murdered predecessor.
