Coins of the Republic of Venice

"You own many and many a ship; your vessels fear not the stormy winds. They come home safely to port, nor do they ever founder, they who time after time set sail from shore. The famous Venetia, already rich in nobility." -- Letter from Cassiodorus, minister to Theodoric the Ostrogoth, to the Venetians. It is the first recorded mention of the people of the lagoon.

During the eighteen years of Doge Venier's rule there were extraordinary high waters, two plagues, numerous fires and disasters of various kinds, but through all he showed his great strength of mind and character. In 1388 his son, Alvise, had a fight with his married lover and then mocked her betrayed husband by hanging on his door a wreath of thorns with an inscription insulting his wife, sister and mother-in-law. Alvise was fined 100 ducats and sentenced to two months in prison. While in prison he fell ill. Antonio did nothing to help and Alvise died in prison. Many praised Antonio as a model of justice; others criticized his zeal as madness.
