The Saints on Coins

Republic of Venice, Doge Lorenzo Tiepolo, 1268 - 1275

Click for a larger photo
Lorenzo Tiepolo was the son of Doge Jacopo Tiepolo. Tiepolo demonstrated skill as commander when he defeated the Genoese at Acre in 1257. Although beloved by the population, his nepotism towards his sons, brought hostility from the nobility. In 1270, a peace treaty with Genoa confirmed Venetian predominance in the Adriatic; however, in that same year, commercial disputes grew to war between Venice and a league of Italian cities including Bologna, Treviso, Verona, Mantua, Ferrara, Cremona, Recanati, and Ancona. After an initial setback, the Venetians gained the upper hand and the terms of peace were favorable. Under Tiepolo, in 1273, Marco Polo began his journey to China. (He would return in 1295.) Tiepolo died in Venice in 1275 and was buried with his father in the Dominican Church of San Zanipolo.
