History (Wikipedia)
In 1451, upon the death of Domenico Michel, patriarch of Grado, Pope Nicholas V suppressed the patriarchate and the bishopric of Castello, incorporating them both in the new patriarchate of Venice by the papal bull Regis aeterni of October 8, 1451. Thus Venice succeeded to the whole metropolitan jurisdiction of Grado's eccelsiastical province, including the sees of Dalmatia.
In 1466 the territory of the patriarchate was expanded by merging the suppressed diocese of Equilio (nowadays Jesolo).
The election of the patriarch belonged to the Senate of Venice, and this practice sometimes led to differences between the republic and the Holy See.
