Born Benedetto Odescalchi in Como on May 16, 1611 to a nobleman, Livio Odescalchi, and his wife Paola from Gandino.

Odescalchi received a Jesuit education at his local college. He moved to Rome and later Naples to study law. On March 6, 1645, Pope Innocent X made him Cardinal-Deacon.

After Pope Clement X died in 1676, a conclave ensued with French opposition to Odescalchi. Eventually the conclave elected Odescalchi on September 21 1676 and he chose the name Innocent XI.

Innocent XI turns his efforts to reforming the Curia and banned the practice of nepotism among all Popes and Cardinals and he lived frugally and returned the Vatican budget to positive. He also supported Vienna in their war against the Turks.

On August 9, 1689 the Pope received Viaticum, but died on August 12 and Pope Alexander VIII succeeded him.
