Hi, I'm confused about the second "of" of the sentence.
Is the second "of" necessary or not? Is the second "of " of any kind of these sentences necessary?

Thank you!

    Yes, it is necessary.
    She protects the greatness of both law and the greatness of Venice.
    Without the second 'of,' She protects the greatness of the law, and she also protects Venice.
