    History REMARKS:
    In 1147 he went on crusade

    Hugues VII, known as \'le Brun\' (\'the Brown\') like several of his forebears, was born in 1065, the son of Hugues VI \'le Brun\' de Lusignan and Hildegarde/Aléarde de Thouars. Also known as Hugues II de La Marche, he was sire de Lusignan, Couhé et Château-Larcher and comte de La Marche. Before 1109 Hugues married Sarasine de Lezay, whose origins are unknown. It has been conjectured that she may have been identical to the Saracena who was widow of Roberto I, count of Sanseverino. Hugues and Sarasine had eight children, of whom their son Hugues VIII would have progeny.

    Hugues was one of the many notable Crusaders in the Lusignan family. In 1147 he took the Cross and followed King Louis VII of France on the Second Crusade. He died in 1151, and was succeeded by Hugues VIII.  [1
