  • Abstract: The island of Cyprus played host to a clearly defined Latin elite until the middle of the fourteenth century. Women belonging to the royal family were actively involved in the defense of the island Kingdom. Studying the feats of arms of Echive de Montbéliard and Charlotte de Lusignan shows us that, although they came from the Lusignan Kingdom’s Frankish elite, their vigorous character won the support of the chroniclers who recounted their exploits.
