From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Giovanni Soranzo (born Burano, 1240 - died Venice, December 31, 1328) was a Venetian statesman who served as the fiftieth Doge of Venice. He ascended to the position on July 13, 1312, and served until his death. Soranzo was a member of a noble and ancient family; in 1310 he was exiled for life from Venice for taking part in Bajamonte Tiepolo's conspiracy to overthrow the state, but he was allowed to return in 1314. He was succeeded as Doge by Francesco Dandolo.
