Lusignans from Hugh VII to the two holy kings

Journal by boldreporter

Hugh VII followed in his father's footsteps by taking the cross and fighting in the Second Crusade. Aside from his record in the war, little is known of him. He had six children, the eldest became Hugh VIII (after 1125-1171). He was taken prisoner after a pilgrimage in 1164, never seeing his seven children again.
The eldest, Hugh (d.1169) married and died before his father. Thus his son became Hugh IX (1168-1219) and retained La Marche.
Another son, Raoul (1160-1217) died defending Acre in 1217.
No information is known of brothers Peter and Geoffrey.
William (after 1163-before 1208) married the titular princess of Edessa.
