Shared note
Hugh X of Lusignan, Hugh V of La Marche or Hugh I of Angoulême or Hugues X & V & I de Lusignan (c. 1183[1] or c. 1195 - c.June 5, 1249, Angoulême) succeeded his father Hugh IX as Seigneur de Lusignan and Count of La Marche in November, 1219 and was Count of Angoulême by marriage. It is unclear whether it was Hugh IX or Hugh X who was betrothed to Isabella of Angoulême when, in 1200, King John of England took her for his Queen, an action which resulted in the entire de Lusignan family rebelling against the English king. Following John's death, Isabella returned to France. By his marriage to Isabelle d'Angoulême (1186 - Fontrevault Abbey, France, May 31, 1246 and buried there) in March 10-May 22, 1220, Hugh X also became Count of Angoulême, until her death in 1246. Together they founded the abbey of Valence. They had nine children: * Hugues XI & III & II de Lusignan, Seigneur de Lusignan, Count of La Marche and Count of Angoulême (1221-1250) * Aymer de Lusignan, Bishop of Winchester c. 1250 (c. 1222 - Paris, December 5, 1260 and buried there) * Agnés/Agathe de Lusignan (c. 1223 - aft. April 7, 1269), married Guillaume II de Chauvigny, Seigneur de Chateauroux (1224 - Palermo, January 3, 1271) * Alice le Brun de Lusignan (1224 - at childbirth February 9, 1256), married 1247 John de Warenne, 7th Earl of Surrey * Guy de Lusignan (d. 1264), Seigneur de Couhe, de Cognac et d'Archiac in 1249, killed at the Battle of Lewes. (Tufton Beamish maintains that he escaped to France after the Battle of Lewes and died there in 1269) * Geoffroi de Lusignan (d. 1274), Seigneur de Jarnac, married secondly in 1259 Jeanne de Châtellerault, Viscountess of Châtellerault (d. May 16, 1315) and had issue: o Eustachie de Lusignan (d. Carthage, Tunisia, 1270), married 1257 Dreux III de Mello (d. 1310) * William de Valence, 1st Earl of Pembroke (d. 1296) * Marguerite de Lusignan (ca 1226/1228 - 1288), married firstly 1240/1241 Raymond VII of Toulouse (1197 - 1249), married secondly c. 1246 Aimery IX de Thouars, Viscount of Thouars (d. 1256), and married thirdly Geoffrey V de Chateaubriant, Seigneur de Chateubriant * Isabelle de Lusignan (1234 - January 14, 1299), Dame de Beauvoir-sur-Mer et de Mercillac, married firstly Geoffrey de Rancon, Seigneur de Taillebourg, and married secondly c. 1255 Maurice IV de Craon (1224/1239 - soon before May 27, 1250/1277) Hugh X was succeeded by his eldest son, Hugh XI of Lusignan. According to explanations in the manuscripts of Gaucelm Faidit's poems, this troubadour was a rival of Hugh X of Lusignan for the love of Marguerite d'Aubusson. He was buried at Angoulême.
