Aveva 69 anni (era nato nel 26 febbraio 1619).

Fu eletto all’unanimità con un unico scrutinio il 3 aprile 1688. Il sigillo e il corno ducale gli vennero spediti ad Egina il 26 maggio 1688, dove si trovava per la guerra contro i turchi nella veste di capitano generale da mar.

Il 21 aprile 1668, prima di essere eletto doge, era stato creato cavaliere di San Marco in virtù dei suoi meriti militari come capitano generale da mar.

Tornò a Venezia il 10 gennaio 1690, ma dopo la morte del nuovo capitano generale da mar, Girolamo Corner, i turchi rialzarono la testa. Il 24 maggio 1693 Morosini fu quasi costretto a riprendere il comando della flotta e ad essere nominato per la terza volta capitano generale da mar: riconquistò alcune isole, ma poi si ammalò e morì a Nauplia il 6 gennaio 1694.

La salma fu trasportata fino a Venezia e tumulata nella Chiesa di S. Stefano (S. Marco). Il sigillo tombale fu lavorato da Filippo Parodi. È celebrato nel Panteon Veneto con un busto dello scultore Angelo Cameroni conservato a Palazzo Ducale.
