MedLands

RAOUL de Lusignan "d'Exoudun" ([1169]-Melle 1 May 1219, bur Exoudun). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Radulfum de Esselduno qui fuit comes Augi" as "Hugo Brunus fratrem natu maiorem" (presumably an error for "minorem"), adding that "horum pater Hugo de Lisegnen" had "fratres…Gaufridum, Henricum regem Cypri et Guidonem regem Ierosolimorum"[888]. "Maiorem" is presumably an error in this source for "minorem", or represents a transcription error: no scenario has been identified in which Raoul being the older brother is compatible with the other information relating to the Lusignan family. Raoul was not named in his father´s charter dated 12 Nov 1166, suggesting that he was born later. As the charter dated 1168 names Douce as wife of "Hugo de Lusignan", who can probably be identified as Hugues [IX], it is likely that Raoul from this supposed second marriage, after his supposed sister Alamanda. If this hypothesis is correct, Raoul must have been born in 1169, maybe posthumously. According to the Complete Peerage, "Esselduno" was "Exoudun, Deux-Sèvres, arrondissement Melle, canton La Mothe-Saint-Héray" not "Issoudun, Indre"[889], although the editor of the Monumenta Germanica series states that the place was "Issoudun, départ. Indre"[890]. Painter states that Exoudun was "a village to the southeast of St Maixent"[891]. He succeeded as Comte d'Eu, by right of his wife. The date of the marriage and Raoul´s succession as count is uncertain. It must have taken place before 1194 when "comes de Auco" paid scutage on land in Sussex[892]. "Radulfus Augensium comes" confirmed donations to Tréport, made by "antecessores mei comes…Robertus et Guillelmus filius eius et Henricus avus Henrici junioris et Johannes pater eiusdem Henrici et idem H.", by charter dated 1191[893], indicating that the marriage took place some years earlier assuming that this document is correctly dated. The Annals of Burton record that “Warinus de Clapiun senescallus Normanniæ” besieged “castellum de Denecurt”, on the orders of John King of England, adding that King Richard had given the castle to “Radulpho de Ysoudun comiti de Aueo, fratri Hugonis le Brun”, but that the siege was lifted by Philippe King of France before the arrival of King John[894]. The same passage is given by Roger of Hoveden[895]. "Hugo Brun com March et Rad com Augi" swore homage to John King of England, dated 28 Jan 1200[896]. Ralph of Coggeshall records that in 1202 John King of England made war against "comitem de Marchis…Hugonem cognomento Brun et fratrem eius comitem de Eu" who had rebelled against him "pro filia comitis Engolismi, quam Hugo prædictus prius affidaverat"[897].
