The dogaressa of Venice, 1200-1500 : wife and icon by Holly S Hurlburt( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Dogaressa' was the title given to the wife of the elected leader (doge) in late medieval Venice. This study traces the evolution of the ducal consort's public identity and the limitations placed upon her during Venice's development into an international economic and political power.

Consideration of this unique female office in the context of other political consorts and their civic functions enhances historical understanding of women, family, and gendered political environments in late medieval Italy."--Jacket

In the first year of her reign, pregnant and widowed, she became regent for the kingdom. This study considers for the first time the strategies of her reign, negotiating Venetian encroachment, family pressures, and the challenges of female rule. Using previously understudied sources, such as her correspondence with Venetian magistracies, the book shows how Corner marshalled her royal authority until and beyond her forced abdication in 1489. The unique perspective of Corner's life reveals new insights into Renaissance imperialism, politics, familial ambition, and conventions of ideal womanhood as revealed in the portraits, poetry, and orations dedicated to her"--
