Hugh IV of Cyprus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (289 words)
The son of Guy of Lusignan, Constable of Cyprus, and Eschiva of Ibelin, Hugh succeeded to the throne of Cyprus on the death of his uncle Henry II, in 1324.
Hugh appears to have been content to rule Cyprus, as he prevented his son, Peter I, from going to Western Europe to recruit support for a new crusade to recover their Kingdom of Jerusalem.
Hugh resigned the crown to his son, Peter I (rather than his grandson Hugh) in 1358, and died on October 10, 1359 in Nicosia.
