a. ^ Paolo Lucio Anafesto is tradeetionally the first Doge o Venice, but John Julius Norwich suggests that this mey be a mistak for Paul, Exarch o Ravenna, an that the tradeetional seicont doge Marcello Tegalliano who mey hae been the similarly named magister militum tae Paul. Thair existence as doges is uncorroboratit bi ony soorce afore the 11t century but, as JJ Norwich suggest, is probably nae entirely legendary. Tradeetionally, the establishment o the Republic is, thus, datit tae 697.

The Republic o Venice (Italian: Repubblica di Venezia, Venetian: Repùblica Vèneta or Repùblica de Venesia) wis a state oreeginatin frae the ceety o Venice in Northeastern Italy. It existit for ower a millennium, frae the late 7t century till 1797. It wis formally kent as the Maist Serene Republic o Venice (Italian: Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia, Venetian: Serenìsima Repùblica Vèneta or Repùblica de Venesia) an is eften referred tae as La Serenissima, in reference tae its teetle as ane o the "Maist Serene Republics". Despite its lang history o war an conquest, the Republic's modren reputation is chiefly based on its status as an economic an tradin pouer.
