Yes, there was an antipope John XXIII. The 20th century John XXIII chose that name to make it even more certain that the antipope one was an antipope. (Although some crazy conspiracy theorists say he chose it because he wanted to be antipope… haha.)

Wait, an antipope was canonized?  Huh?

I'm thoroughly confused

Well, he seems to have died a Martyr for the Faith after he was reconciled to the Church. I see no problem. Ste Jeanne d'Arc died excommunicated.
