Hugh IV of Cyprus
Hugh IV was King of Cyprus from 1324 to 1359 and, nominally, King of Jerusalem, as Hugh II. The son of Guy of Lusignan, 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. So content was Hugh, that he is largely invisible to popular history little recorded except his existence which, presumably, was peaceful by the standards of the time.
Hugh died in 1359 when he was succeeded by his son Peter I.
