Girolamo Priuli (1486–1567)
|Lifetime Doge of the Most Serene Republic of Venice|
|Preceded by||Lorenzo Priuli|
|Succeeded by||Pietro Loredan|
|Died||4 November 1567|
Girolamo was the son of Alvise Peruli and his wife Chiara Lion.
As a man of culture he seemed insignificant in relation to his brother; ineloquent, he was at first scarcely popular but gained respect through the works embellishing the city that he achieved as doge, in a period, above all, of peace for the Repubblica Serenissima.
His early career established him as an able merchant, though not among the most prominent. He served as procuratore di San Marco.
His marriage with Elena Diedo produced a son who was named Antonio Priuli and he became the 94th Doge of Venice reigning from 1618 until his death.
