Marino Dandolo

Marino Dandolo (Greek: Μαρίνος Δάνδολος; died before 1243) was a Venetian nobleman and first Latin ruler of the island of Andros following the Fourth Crusade.[1] He was a member of the prominent Dandolo family.[2] He accompanied Marco Sanudo on the conquest of the Aegean Islands in 1207, and was awarded the island of Andros as a sub-fief.[3] He was expelled from his island around 1239 by Geremia Ghisi,[4] and died in exile before August 1243.[5]
