  • Title: Caterina Cornaro nella "Istoria Viniziana" di Pietro Bembo [The Venetian Republic commissioned histories, including one from Pietro Bembo, which were reviewed by the Council of Ten. Bembo's account of Caterina Cornaro sanitizes the Republic's efforts to force her to surrender the Kingdom of Cyprus to Venice. The historical Caterina Cornaro subsequently became a figure of myth and a character in drama. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
