Marcello Tegalliano (Latin: Marcellus Tegalianus; died 726) was, according to tradition, the second Doge of Venice (717–726). He is described as having hailed from Eraclea, and during his nine-year reign was apparently in great disagreement with the nearby Longobards.[1] He died in 726 and was succeeded by Orso Ipato.

History[edit]

However, John Julius Norwich has argued that the first doge, Paoluccio Anafesto, was Paul, Exarch of Ravenna, and that Marcellus was his magister militum of the same first name.[2]
