The Treaty of Alcañices
  • Serrata : The constitution of Venice will continue to focus on a strict oligarchy : the previous Grand Council with 588 members until then will be expanded and new membership regulations will gradually be introduced. This ultimately leads to the fact that in principle men are admitted to the Grand Council whose father or grandfather sat on the Grand Council. Access is now only granted to members of the leading families . The Grand Council elects the doge , the head of state, and the procurators for life, as well as all other office holders with always limited terms of office.
