In the history of the Ventian Republic Cavalieri di San Marco was the only order of knighthood marked by a sizeable Croatian membership. Basing this article on the material from the Venetian State Archives (Archivio di Stato di Venezia, fund: Cancelleria inferiore, Cavalieri di San Marco, Privilegi), the opening section provides a short survey on Croatian membership in this order of Venetian knighthood. The main emphasis is placed on the members originating from the town of Budva, the history of which – particularly that of the early modern period – is fairly obscure. Members of this Venetian order were Ivan and Nikola Soliman, father and son, (registered in 1589 and 1621), together with Petar Marković (1656). All three belonged to the nobility of Budva, while Petar Marković to that of Paštrovići as well. During the Veneto-Turkish campaigns, they played an important role in defending their home territory, but also in fighting on Serenissima’s side on various Adriatic battlefronts. Grounding her study on archive sources (the earlier-mentioned State Archives of Venice and State Archives of Zadar), the author aims to illuminate these families and their prominent members, and establish the reasons for their admission to the order of Cavalieri di San Marco. Appended are the transcripts of documents certifying that Nikola Soliman and Petar Marković, nobles of Budva, were Knights of the Order of St Mark.
