Arsende DE VIVONNE 1
The manuscript, entitled "Conventus inter Comitem et Ugonem" by Besly, records an agreement between "comes Pictavorum et præsul Gislebertus" (on the one part) and "Ioscelino avunculo Hugoni" (on the other), regarding the transfer of "castro…Vicredoni" to the latter after the death of the bishop, and after the death of both the first parties an agreement between "comes" and "episcopo Isemberto et Ugoni" transferred a half interest in the castle to the latter. If "avunculo" is interpreted strictly in the document quoted above, Joscelin de Vivonne was the maternal uncle of Hugues [IV] de Lusignan. "Ugo Liziniacensis domnus" donated property to St Cyprien, Poitiers by charter dated to [1012/18], subscribed by "Arsendis matris eius".... 2
Arsende married Seigneur Hugues III "Le Blanc" DE LUSIGNAN, son of Seigneur Hugues II DE LUSIGNAN, about 967. (Hugues III "Le Blanc" DE LUSIGNAN was born in Lusignan, Vienne, Poitou, France and died about 1012.)
