History: Jean Miel (or Amiel) dit Lusignan from Lusignan in Vienne, France, married Marie-Thérèse Latouche in Boucherville, QC, in 1699. — A French family called (de) Lusignan became enormously powerful in the eastern Mediterranean during the Middle Ages. Guy de Lusignan (1129–94) was king of Cyprus from 1192 to 1194 (and before that, by right of marriage, king of the crusader state of Jerusalem). Hugues de Lusignan was king of Cyprus from 1267 to 1284 and king of Jerusalem from 1268 to 1284. During the 14th century, Lusignans became kings of the Armenian kingdom of Cilicia (on the Mediterranean coast of what is now Turkey, facing Cyprus).
