From Chapter 45 of the Decline & Fall

Dispositorque novus sacrae Baduarius aulae.
Successor soceri mox factus Cura-palatî. - Cerippus.

Baduarius is enumerated among the descendants and allies of the house of Justinian. A family of noble Venetians (Casa Badoero) built churches and gave dukes to the republic as early as the ninth century; and, if their descent be admitted, no kings in Europe can produce a pedigree so ancient and illustrious.
