Navagero, Bernardo an Italian cardinal, was born at Venice in 1507. He was called to the most important positions of trust in the gift of the republic, being successively sent from home as ambassador to Dalmatia, Constantinople, France, Rome, and the court of the emperor. The doge, Pierre Lando, sought his alliance, and caused him to marry Istriana Lando, his granddaughter, who died some years after her marriage with Bernardo. The latter sought consolation in study and religion, and chose the ecclesiastical career. Pope Pius IV, judging that the place of a man so distinguished was in the sacred college, created him cardinal February 26, 1561, and gave him the bishopric of Verona. He was afterwards sent as legate to rent, where he assisted at the closing of the council. He died at Verona May 27, 1565. We have by this cardinal Addresses, and the Life of Pope Paul IV. Augustin Valerio has given the life of Bernardo Navagero in his book entitled De cautione adhibenda in edendis libris (Padua, 1719, 4to, pages 61-98).
