BIBLIOGRAFIIY.—An account of Marino Faliero's reign is given in S. Romanin's Scoria documentata di Venezia, lib.'ix. cap. ii. (Venice, 1855) ; M. Sanudo, Le Vite dei Dogi in new edition of Muratori fasc., 3, 4, 5 (Citta di Castello, 1900). For special works see V. Lazzerini's Genealogia d. M. Faliero " in the Archivio Veneto of 1892; " M. Faliero avanti ii Dogado," ibid. (1893), and his exhaustive study " M. Faliero, la Congiura," ibid. (1897). The most recent essay on the subject is contained in Horatio Brown's Studies in Venetian History (London, 1907), wherein all the authorities are set forth. (L. V. *)

Additional information and Comments

There are streets on some of the Greek Islands with the name "Faliero". Evidently Marino Faliero had fought a naval battle against the Ottoman Turks and defeated them. This of course benefited the Greek Islanders so they named streets after him in his honor. I am one from the very few Greek families that are named Falieros, (I changed that to Phalieros when I immigrated to the USA). There must have been marriage(s)between members of the Venetian Faliero family to local families from the Greek Islands. I would welcome more information on this subject.
