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.
