Summary Between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries, Venice transformed itself from a struggling merchant commune to a powerful maritime empire that would shape events in the Mediterranean for the next four hundred years. In this magisterial new book on medieval Venice, Thomas F. Madden traces the city-state's extraordinary rise through the life of Enrico Dandolo (c. 1107--1205), who ruled Venice as doge from 1192 until his death. The first full-length study devoted to Dandolo's life and times corrects the many misconceptions about him which have accumulated over the centuries, offering an accurate and incisive assessment of Dandolo's motives, abilities, and achievements as doge, as well as his role -- and Venice's -- in the Fourth Crusade.
