  • ID: I51915
  • Name: Pietro I Orseolo
  • Sex: M
  • Death: 997
  • Occupation: Doge of Venice
  • Note:

    Pietro I Orseolo (c. 928-997) acted as ambassador to the emperor Otto I before he was elected "doge" in August 976. Just previous to this event part of Venice had been burned down and Pietro began the rebuilding of St. Mark's Basilica and the ducal palace. He is chiefly celebrated, however, for his piety and his generosity, and after holding office for two years he left Venice secretly and retired to a monastery in Aquitaine, where he passed his remaining days. He was canonized in 1731.
