John of Poitiers-Lusignan (French: Jean de Poitiers-Lusignan; died 7 August 1343) was constable and later regent of the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia.

He was son of Amalric, Lord of Tyre, and Isabella of Armenia.[1] His siblings were Guy (Constantine II, King of Armenia) and Agnes, wife of Leo III, King of Armenia.

Marriage and issue

John married (before 1330) Soldane Bagrationi (d. after 1343),[1] daughter of king George V of Georgia. The couple had a son:

  • Leo V 1342 - 1393, king of Lesser Armenia (1374-1375), married Marguerite de Soissons.[1] When Mamluks took the kingdom, Leo V became titular king (1375-1393) and he was succeeded by his 2nd cousin king James I of Cyprus.

Death

John was murdered in Cilicia on 7 August 1343.
