Contemporary of Guy de Chypre (de Lusignan) (Lusignan, b. 1275? d. 1303) Brother of Guillaume de Beaujeu of Naples

Fled the persecution of the Templars during the dissolution of the order of Knights Templar. His descendants sought refuge from the persecution of the Pope by allaying themselves with the Eastern Orthodox church.

May have been the French/Arabic speaking author of Gestes des Chiprois. This author, an unnamed relative if Simon Moustier (Templar Librarian) and assistant to Guillaume Beaujeau, is known only as the Templar of Tyr (Le Templier de Tyr).

Circumstantial evidence (Moldavian Numismatics showing relationship to Capet-Arpad) connects him to this line. It is historically unattested and may be subject to change

Costea/Costas (Charles) was likely the son of either Ladislaus IV and Marie Capet, or else Charles II Capet and Maria Arpad. It is unlikely that he is the same person as Kalman (Solomon), although they were no doubt related either uncle/nephew or even (as some might suggest) father/son.
