Seigneur Hugues I "Le Veneur" DE LUSIGNAN 1

  • Married:

  Research Notes:

Painter notes that the castle of Lusignan "stood on the western bank of the river Vonne, a tributary of the Clain, about twenty miles southwest of Poitiers", commenting that all the possessions of Hugues [IV] de Lusignan "except the estates around the town of Saint-Maixent could have been enclosed in a circle with a radius of fifteen miles centering in Lusignan" and that "he was essentially a local potentate". The first two generations of the Lusignan family...are known only from references in contemporary or near contemporary chronicles....

The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent records the death in 1110 of "Hugo [de Leziniaco] filius Hugonis Bruni", providing his ancestry "qui fuit Albi, qui fuit Cari, qui fuit Hugonis Venatoris", although this text appears to omit a generation in the descent.

The name of Hugues's wife is not known. 2
