Coat of arms of Michele Morosini

Michele Morosini (1308 - 16 October 1382) was the Doge of Venice for a few months, from 10 June to his death in October the same year.

Born in one of the most important Venetian families, Morosini was extremely wealthy. Opinions about him varied, though, and he is seen either as a devoted servant of the Republic, either as a speculator who enriched himself on real estate during hard times of War of Chioggia, fought between Venice and Genoa between 1378 to 1381.

Elected after the death of Doge Andrea Contarini, he died very soon of the plague and was buried in the church of San Zanipolo.
