Giovanni Bernadone Morosini (Moriconi) (aka Francis of Assisi and aka Marino Morosini) was born in Paris as one of several children to Pietro Bernadone Morosini of the all-powerful Morosini House of Pisa and Pica de Bourlemont from France.
The name “Francis” is a nickname and was never his proper name–simply meaning “Frenchman” — on account of his birth in Paris. Similarly, “Assisi” is a deliberate corruption of the ancient word for the location Ascesi meaning “(he) has ascended”. Therefore the fuller nickname “Francis of Assisi” properly translates to “the Ascended Frenchman”.
By the end of the 12th century, the Pisan Empire controlled trade across the whole of the Western Mediterranean and Eastern Mediterranean with the Morosini family arguably being one of the wealthiest families in history controlling a banking and trading empire in wool, fine cloth, salt and grain stretching from England to Constantinople.
However, prior to the 13th Century, the ancient Persian families, that dominated the Pisan Empire and its major cities such as Pisa, Genoa and Venice, had considered no compelling reason to convert to Christianity from Manichean (Persian Occult Theology). Therefore, Pietro Bernadone Morosini was almost certainly a Kabbalist and not Christian at this time.
In April 1182, Philip II (1180-1223) of France ordered the expulsion of all Pisan houses and the seizure of their vast warehouses and treasuries. Upon word of the rebellion against the Persian trading families of the Pisan Empire reaching Constantinople, Emperor Alexios II (1180-1183) Komnenos ordered the expulsion of all Pisan, Genoese and Venetian traders and seizure of their warehouses as well, sparking mass riots and looting, resulting in thousands of deaths.
Pietro Bernadone Morosini then placed his infant son Giovanni and family under protection in Pisa, while he returned to Venice to confront the disastrous reign of Doge Vital Il Michiel. For unknown reasons, the family felt compelled to leave Pisa and head inland to the region of Ascesi (now called Assisi) where they lived for a few short years.
By 1187, the Beneventian AntiPope Gregory VIII had been thrown from power into exile and the Morosini family moved to a newly commissioned Palazzo Morosini (Moriconi) at Lucca, which remained a seat of power for the family for the next two hundred years. There, Giovanni and the family were tutored in languages, finance and law (the basis of modern maritime and commercial law).
Yet from an early age it is consistently reported that Giovanni desired to be a troubadour, a military Christian knight rather than follow in the footsteps of his ancient Persian ancestors as traders and financiers. The Persian traders of the Pisan Empire prided themselves in being “above” the war and misery they funded and for any son of a Morosini to seek such a “lowly profession” would have been a bitter and extraordinary disappointment to Pietro Bernadone Morosini.
Upon Pierleoni descendent AntiPope Innocent III coming to power in 1198, Giovanni was resolved to join the call to arms by Innocent III and pursue his military career –which would necessarily require him to convert to Christianity. This event is almost certainly the true historic context of the famous curse of disinheritance uttered by his father to Giovanni. To place this into context, young Giovanni (Francis) chose a life of service over a life of pleasure and his inheritance of the most powerful trading empire (Pisa) in the world.
Giovanni left Lucca no later than 1201 and headed north-east towards the lands of famous Italian general Boniface I, Marquess of Montferrat. While it is not known if he ever got to Montferrat, it is clear that his noble and powerful heritage was recognized and he was captured, imprisoned (presumably for ransom) and released within a year, suffering some kind of sickness.
Undeterred, no sooner had Giovanni returned to Lucca and recovered, he then set off again by 1204, this time south with escort towards Rome. There, he met AntiPope Innocent III for the first time- a descendent of the lesser Persian Urseoli/Pierlioni houses meeting a descendent of his sworn enemy the elite Morosini.
While nothing concrete emerged from this first meeting, it is clear (given Giovanni was not executed) that Innocent III believed the conviction of this ancient enemy of his ancestors and it is probably Innocent that baptized Giovanni as a Christian. Giovanni left with newfound conviction that he would find a way to become a great military general and avenge the disgrace of his family at the hands of the French and Byzantines.
In the same year, the Venetians co-operated with the Roman Cult and the English to transport their troops safely by sea; and succeeded in the naval assault of Constantinople in April 1204 by the forces of Innocent.
Yet it was an inspired revelation in 1209 that was to change the life of Giovanni (Francis) and the course of the Catholic Church and Roman Cult forever. Dwelling upon the story and life of Jesus Christ and reflecting upon the inevitable rise and fall of empires, family fortunes and wealthy men, Giovanni (Francis) recognized that only through the renouncing of personal property claims, even property claims of great houses, to then administer such property as “custodians” in absolute poverty could trading empires like Pisa and its city states such as Venice hope to succeed. Furthermore, that such people assigned to such office must administer their role with military self-discipline.
In 1209, 28 year old Giovanni Bernadone Morosini (Moriconi) returned to see Innocent III with his supporters and a plan. He (Giovanni) would do what no one else had done– he would convert the whole Pisan Empire to Christianity bind its loyalty to the Rome (Roman Cult) through the creation of a fraternal brotherhood of those who renounced all worldly possessions and temptations. While Innocent almost certainly didn’t believe such an audacious plan was possible, he gave Giovanni his blessing.
Giovanni then set out to Venice by 1210 to meet with Doge Pietro Ziani (1205-1229). The proposition to the Venetian Doge was simple–so long as Venice attempted to be neutral between the wars of Christians vs Christian and Christian vs Muslim, Venice would continue to face imminent danger. So long as trading houses controlled the treasuries of Venice there would be turmoil. But if Venice supported the Urseoli (Pierleoni) descendents and their Roman Cult in holding power from Rome, if Venice helped established a fraternal brotherhood sworn to poverty, to obedience and humility administering the treasury and banking documents of state, then its future could be assured, so long as the Roman Cult held control of the Catholic Church.
Giovanni then proposed that the Doge of Venice and the longhi grant permission to found a Christian academy of priest-navigators both loyal to Venice and to Rome that the Roman Cult would then enforce as a religious edict for all Christian nations. Thus, the church would help enforce the monopoly of Venice in the controlling of shipping and navigation, in exchange for the loyalty and profit share with Venice.
While Doge Pietro Zani probably did not believe such an audacious plan was possible, despite Giovanni being a Morosini, he agreed to grant him the future site of St Mark’s Basilica next to the Doge’s Palace as well as the site of San Francesco della Vigna, near St Mark’s Square as the first Franciscan Monastery and Finance/Navigators school.
Using part of his newly replenished family fortune (thanks in large part to the conquest of Constantinople and the formation of the Latin Empire (1204-1261)), construction began almost immediately on the immense Basilica as the future site for the remains of St Mark, stolen from Alexandria.
Giovanni then left Venice for Spain and England to recruit the best navigators he could find for his new school and religious order in Venice.
In 1215, Giovanni returned to Rome to attend the Fourth Lateran Council. In 1216 Innocent III died and was succeeded by his son Honorius III who took a keen interest in the plans of Giovanni. By no later than 1219, he assigned some of his top advisors as protectors and oversight on the progress of the Friars Minor.
Similarly, the Venetians continued their keen interest in the success of their joint-venture with the Roman Cult, the creation of the Holy See – a monopoly of trade across the known world, by controlling the very tools of trade, navigation knowledge, maps, charts as well as ships.
The first partnership between the Venetian Friars Minor Order was with England, the Venetians and the Papacy that saw huge knowledge of all manner of technology such as shipbuilding, metals, education and military skills moved to England thanks to “Francis of Assisi”.
While the idea of a socialist, fraternal brotherhood, sworn to absolute poverty, obedience and humility was an extraordinarily radical idea, especially to a pagan city state as Venice, so successful were the “frari” of Giovanni (Francis) that in 1223, Venice was declared a Christian state, the whole Minori Consiglio (Minor Council) of Venice was converted to a religious fraternity (brotherhood) “en mass” known as Ordo Fraternum Minori or “Fraternal Order of Frugality” later known by the late 13th Century as the “Franciscans” headed by a Minister-General.
Such was the success of the actions of Giovanni (Francis) that in 1249 he became the first Christian Doge of Venice (1249-1253). It is why later forgers of the Roman Cult saw it important to sever all possibility of “St Francis” the Moroconi/Morisini also being the Doge “Marino” (Mariner, or “of the sea”) Morosini in 1249-1253.
In his first year in office, works on St Mark’s Basilica was expanded and the very first Bucentaur (state galley) was constructed. Doge Giovanni then called upon AntiPope Innocent IV (1243-1254) to give him his papal ring–his symbol of authority.
Then in 1250 upon the Bucentaur, Doge Giovanni (St Francis) and Innocent IV went off into the sea near St Mark’s Square’s square and Doge St Francis threw the Papal Ring into the sea during a formal Roman Cult religious ceremony at which point St Francis was the first to ever utter “Desponsamus te, mare, in signum veri perpetuique domini” We wed thee, sea, in the sign of the true and everlasting Lord”) declared Venice and the (Holy) sea to be indissolubly one–thus the Holy See was first born as the first “fully Christian” joint business venture between the Roman Cult, the Venetians and the Crown of England.
As Doge, Giovanni (Francis) re-established the Carolingian and Christian ideal of charity and alms for the poor, ensuring that people no longer starved to death or were simply sold as slaves.
With the aid of the Venetian trained Franciscans, Pope Innocent IV promoted new centres of learning in Rome attracting the very best and most talented such as Thomas Aquinas. It was under Thomas Aquinas that the Roman Cult developed its most potent weapons for fighting to dominate the world in the form of legal words, legal forgeries and the concepts of law and justice.
The Venetians had the most sophisticated of all legal systems in its maritime edicts, passed down from Doge to Doge that they formed into a consolidated codex, since the end of the 10th century. This was consolidated into Admiralty Law, the law of ownership and debt–the law of money, land, sea and property. Thus using the Venetian maritime laws as the skeleton, Aquinas weaved a new set of laws given to the Crown Corporation of England called the Admiralty laws which considered all non titled living men and women to be human (animals) represented by an upper case persona (fictional character) which deemed them the legal property of the crown to be treated in the same manner as “vessels”.
By the time of the death of Giovanni Bernadone Morosini (Moriconi) in 1253, he had indeed fulfilled his audacious promise. The Holy See was born–the joint venture between Venice, England and the Roman Cult. The name of his family and their fortune restored and forever remembered as a great general–the greatest saint of the Roman Cult.
To protect the memory of this most important and revered servant of both Venice and the Roman Cult, Giovanni renamed Francis (the Frenchman) was promoted as a saint soon after his death. Then during the 15th and 16th Centuries, the Roman Cult went to the extraordinary length of claiming that he underwent the same miraculous signs of Jesus Christ himself in the form of the Stigmata.
It is sad that the myths of the man overtook the reality of his achievements as a man of real history. In truth, the works of Giovanni known as “Francis of Assisi” were extraordinary, for any time in history. He was a man who turned his back on the greatest personal fortune of his time. He restored the values and disciplines of Jesus Christ back into Europe through the Franciscans headquartered in Venice. He successfully converted much of the Pisan Empire to Christianity. He re-established the framework of law necessary for trade done in good faith, with clean hands, without prejudice or vexation. He transformed the Roman Cult into a proper international institution. Most importantly, he genuinely cared for the poor and had the vision and foresight to recognize the future of the Church remaining in control needed discipline and genuine holiness, not simply “window dressing”.
