    History Jeanne de Lusignan was born about 1260, the daughter of Hugues XII de Lusignan, comte de La Marche et d\'Angoulême, and Jehanne de Fougères, dame de Fougères. In 1314 she succeeded her elder sister Yolande as Dame de Lusignan, de Couhe et de Peyrat, but not as Comtesse de La Marche; after her sister\'s death La Marche was annexed by Philippe IV, king of France, and given as an appanage to his son Charles \'le Bel\'. In 1308, following the death of their brother Guy I de Lusignan, Jeanne and her sister Isabelle, as co-heiresses, had sold the county of Angoulême to the king.

    With her first husband Bernard Aiz IV, sire d\'Albret, son of Amanieu VI, sire d\'Albret, and Mathe de Bordeaux, Jeanne had two daughters, Mathe and Isabelle, who did not have progeny. After the death of her first husband in 1280, in 1283 Jeanne married Piers de Geneville, 2nd Lord Geneville, son of Geoffroy de Joinville, 1st baron de Geneville, sire de Vaucouleurs, and Mahaut de Lacy, heiress of Meath. Of their three daughters, two became nuns, and Joane would have progeny, marrying Roger Mortimer, 1st earl of March.

    Jeanne died before 18 April 1323, she was buried in Abbey Notre-Dame de Valence, Couhé-Verac, department Vienne, Poitou-Charentes.  [1
