Lignages d'Outremer

The Lignages d'Outremer ("Lineages of Outremer") describe the pedigrees of the most important Crusader families.[1]

A first version was written in 1270 and is available in two manuscripts of the 14th century. A later version was produced in 1307/08, another in Italian, 1398 (Notizie sopra i Re di Gerusalemme e di Cipro e loro parentela etc.). It was compiled by Pierre de Flory (Piero de Fiorin), viscount of Nicosia, who probably also comes from Antioch, and Simon of Jerusalem, and was probably written in Cyprus. The lineages name more than a thousand people in the different versions.[2] Among them are the Ibelin Counts of Jaffa.[3]
