Pietro II Orseolo (died 1009) was the Doge of Venice from 991 to 1009. He began the period of eastern expansion of Venice that lasted for the better part of 500 years. He secured his influence in the Dalmatian Romanized settlements from the Croats and Narentines, freed Venetia from a 50-year old taxation to the latter, and started Venetia's expansions by conquering Lastovo and Korčula and acquiring Dubrovnik.
