  General Notes:

DOUCE, daughter of --- (-after 1168).] A charter dated 1168 records a donation of property to the Knights Hospitallers by "Hugo de Lusignan, Dulcia uxor et Alamanda filia eiusdem". This assumes that "Hugo de Lusignan" in this document can be identified with Hugues [IX] de Lusignan. Hugues [IX]'s widow may have married secondly, as his second wife, Guillaume Maingot Seigneur de Surgères. This second marriage is suggested by the document, dated (by Delisle) to [1209], under which "comes Augi" (Raoul de Lusignan "d'Exoudun" Comte d'Eu, see below) pledged his lands for his homage to Philippe II King of France, and that of "fratres sui comes Marchie et vicecomes Castri Eraudi". Assuming that this document is correctly dated, "vicecomes Castri Eraudi" at the time was Hugues de Surgères. A second marriage of Raoul's mother would be the only way in which Hugues de Surgères could be correctly called "frater" of Hugues [X] de Lusignan and Raoul de Lusignan Comte d'Eu. If Orengarde/Douce can correctly be identified as the [second] wife of Hugues [IX], and mother of Raoul, it is likely that she was heiress of Exoudun which was transmitted to Raoul.] 1


Douce married Hugues IX de Lusignan, son of Hugues VIII de Lusignan Seigneur de Lusignan and Bourgogne de Rancon.1 (Hugues IX de Lusignan died before 16 Mar 1169 1.)
