Summary/Abstract: This essay uses sources kept in the State Archives in Venice, State Archives in Zadar, Archives of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts and the Croatian State Archives, as well as secondary literature to reconstruct the career of Ivan Radoš, a Venetian military official and a prominent participant in the seventeenth century wars between Venice and the Ottomans. Following basic family information, the central section of the essay examines Radoš’ military career especially in the hinterland of Zadar. It furthermore analyzes the Doge’s order of appointment of Radoš as a cavaliere di San Marco in 1670, a proof of his military engagement in the Venetian army, as well as his testament as a valuable source of information on his wealth, family and business connections. The appendix contains a transcription of his testament including 1685 and 1686 codicils.
