==Life==
Little is known of the early life of Patr. Artemius. His dates date of birth and repose are is unknown. He was respected and experienced. The [[Holy Synod]] of the [[Church of Constantinople]] elected Artemius to the [[see]] of Alexandria over the objections of the Hellenic Community of Alexandria, although he had recommended [[Archimandrite]] [[Hierotheus II of Alexandria|Hierotheus]] for the Patriarchal Throne. He was installed on [[October 8]], 1845.
His patriarchate was one of internal upheaval as neither the [[clergy]] nor [[laity|people]] accepted Artemius as Patriarch of Alexandria. This hostility finally led him to resign on [[January 30February 11]], 1847.
