Girolamo Priuli

(Venice, 1486 – Venice, 4 November 1567) was an Italian merchant and politician, 83rd Doge of the Republic of Venice from 1559 to his death.

He was the son of Alvise di Nicolò Priuli, of the “San Stae” branch, and Chiara di Giacomo Lion. During his youth he was engaged in trade, so much so that between 1514 and 1518 is attested to his presence in Syria and Egypt; this activity made him particularly rich, as evidenced by the increase between the tenth declarations of 1537 (781 ducats of income) and 1566 (1263,13 ducats).

On 30 April 1520 he returned to Venice, in fact on that date, through the disbursement of 500 ducats, he had managed to enter the Senate. In January 1525 he married Elena di Antonio Diedo, who gave him only one son, Ludovico (or Alvise), who died without issue.

Initially he was not very interested in public life, preferring to leave to his brother Lorenzo the tasks of politics. However, he distinguished himself as a statesman by offering the government loans of money (for example, in the 1520s, during the War of the League of Cognac), which allowed him to enter the Senate again in 1529.

This event marked the beginning of his political career, in reality rather discontinuous, disorganic and without precise objectives. He was Provveditore alle Pompe (1531), member of the Senate Council (1532), Provveditore alle Biave (1535), officer above the Acts of Sopragastaldo (1539), Savio alla Mercanzia (1540); thanks to experience in commerce, the latter role was reconfirmed in 1542, in 1548 and 1550. He was also a member of the Council of Ten (1543, 1545, 1547, 1549, 1551, 1552, 1554), possibly under pressure from his brother Lorenzo. He also became one of the twenty-five sages in charge of reviewing the town valuation (1548), then was ducal councillor for Dorsoduro (1551, he had in fact moved to San Barnaba) and wise over the Lagoons (1552), role immediately abandoned to become governor of the Revenue. In the same year he was appointed provveditore all’Arsenale, then provveditore all’Armamento (1553), conservatore delle Leggi (1556) e provveditore sopra Beni inculti (1556).

In July 1556 Lorenzo was elected doge, bringing prestige to his entire family; so on 30 May 1557 Girolamo was appointed procurator of San Marco de ultra. His career continued again as a superintendent at the Arsenal (1557) and Conservative of the Laws (1558).

On 29 August 1559 Lorenzo died, after a dogate of just two years. For this reason, the choice of successor fell on Jerome, although thirty-six ballots were needed before he was elected on 1 September.

The war ended a few months ago with the peace of Cateau-Cambrésis and the Council of Trent also came to an end. His government then took place in a rather serene period, both internally and internationally.
