Doge - LoveToKnow 1911 (967 words)
After the abdication of Doge Pietro Ziani in 1229 two commissions were appointed which obtained a permanent place in the constitution and which gave emphatic testimony to the fact that the doge was merely the highest servant of the community.
The second commission consisted of three inquisitori sopra it doge defunto, their business being to examine and pass judgment upon the acts of a deceased doge, whose estate was liable to be mulcted in accordance with their decision.
In its earlier form this ceremony was instituted to commemorate the conquest of Dalmatia by Doge Pietro Orseole II.
