For more Medieval goodness, see Suibhne's video (https://youtu.be/BnUQAQ5spWE) and History Time's video (https://youtu.be/tEROvgTrjuU).
In the late Middle Ages and at the height of the Renaissance, all roads on the maritime highway of the Mediterranean Sea led to Venice. Join Blue (and special guest Suibhne) to discover why Venice came to be, how they came to dominate naval trade, and what happened over the fascinating course of their thousand-year history as an independent Republic.
Further Reading: John Julius Norwich's "A History Of Venice" – 600 pages of good stuff.
