Giovanni Soranzo

Giovanni Soranzo (born Burano, 1240 - died Venice, December 31, 1328) was a Venetian statesman who served as the 51st Doge of Venice. He ascended to the position on July 13, 1312, and served until his death. Soranzo was a member of a noble family; he was married to Franchesina.[1] In 1310 his son-in-law, Niccolo' Querini was exiled for life from Venice for taking part in Bajamonte Tiepolo's conspiracy to overthrow the state. Soranzo was succeeded as Doge by Francesco Dandolo.
