Paolo Renier (born Venice, November 21, 1710 – died there February 13, 1789) was a Venetian statesman, the 119th, and penultimate, Doge of Venice. He was considered a good orator and tactician, and served as ambassador to Constantinople and to Vienna. His election as Doge was unpopular, and he was the subject of numerous menacing letters at the time. Renier was succeeded as Doge by Ludovico Manin, who would be the last Doge of Venice. He married Giustina Dona (d. 1751) in 1733, and Margherita Delmaz (d. 1817) in 1751.[1]
