1. Doge
Elected chief magistrate who served as the Venetian leader. The first doge came to power in Venice circa 697, with the last abdicating 1100 years later.

Ridolfo emphasised his Italian pedigree and his troubadour experience by offering to recount tales from the doge's court in Venice to dungeoneer Alan from Team 3 of Series 6.

Genoa in Italy also had doges. Might they have been likely owners of a Genoese box of delights?
