Venetian Republic

The sales of Dalmatia by Croatian Hungarian King Ladislaus of Naples in 1409.for 100,000 ducats is usually mentioned as crucial, but it still would not have allowed Venice to invade, without a fight, the Dalmatian cities. The Split Grand Chamber concluded that the Split is to voluntarily surrender to the Venetian Republic, on the contrary, it sought its protection from unruly dutches from inland, who strove to extend their lands and feudal rights to Split area. From 1420 . on city flagpole («štandarac»), on the St. Lawrence square, today People's Square, flutters the Venice flag with the coat of arms with winged lion of St. Mark, which will be hung next 377 years. The end of 15th c. and first half 16.st. was fertile period for the development of architecture, sculpture and literature in Split. .
