The House of Moro was a patrician family of the Republic of Venice and one of the founding families of the city in 424. [1][2]

From 1388, the date of Francesco Moro's return from the island of Negroponte, the family had an increasing influence in the public life of the city. [2] They reached the peak of the republican institutions with the election of Cristoforo Moro (1462-1471) as the 67th Doge during the wars against the Ottomans.[3][4] The family gave ambassadors, politicians, generals and procurators of Saint Mark, bishops and patriarchs.
