From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Angelo Emo (born Venice, 3 January 1731 died, Malta 3 March 1792) was the last Grand Admiral of the Republic of Venice. He attempted to introduce reforms based on the practices of the British Royal Navy, and led raids on Moorish targets along the Barbary Coast in retaliation for corsair attacks on Venetian-flagged shipping.
