Marco Barbarigo (c. 1413 – 1486) was the 73rd Doge of Venice from 1485 until 1486.

His dogaressa was Lucia Ruzzini (d. 1496), described as a hypochondriac but talented beauty.[1] His brother was Agostino Barbarigo. The two are the namesakes of the Master of the Barbarigo Reliefs, who was responsible for the creation of their tomb.

Popular culture[edit]

  • He appears in the video game Assassin's Creed II as a villain, and one of the main character's assassination targets; he was killed while holding a speech on a boat during Carnevale. His bodyguard, Dante Moro would be killed later.
