Random information on the term “DOGE”:

A doge (/ˈdoʊdʒ/; Italian: [ˈdɔːdʒe]; plural dogi or doges) was an elected lord and Chief of State in several Italian city-states, notably Venice and Genoa, during the medieval and renaissance periods. Such states are referred to as “crowned republics”.

The word is from the Venetian language, reaching English via French. Doge, along with the related English word duke and the Italian duce, duca (masculine) and duchessa (feminine) all descend from the Latin dux, meaning either “spiritual leader” or “military commander”. However, the words duce and duca are not interchangeable. Moreover, duca (duke) is an aristocratic and hereditary title. The wife of a doge is styled a dogaressa and the office of the doge is termed dogeship.

The title of doge was used for the elected chief of state in a number of Italian “crowned republics”. The two best known such republics were Venice (where in Venetian he was called doxe [ˈdɔze]) and Genoa (where he was called a dûxe [ˈdyːʒe]) which rivalled each other, and the other regional great powers, by building their historical city-states into maritime, commercial, and territorial empires. Other Italian republics to have doges were Amalfi and the small town of Senarica.
