Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lucia (died aft. 1292 or ca 1299) was the last countess of Tripoli. She was the daughter of Bohemund VI, Prince of Antioch and Sibylla of Armenia. Her brother was Bohemund VII of Tripoli. When Bohemund VII died in 1287, their mother appointed as regent Bertrand of Gibelet. He proved to be very unpopular with the commune of the city, who created their own administration. Lucia then came to Tripoli from Auxerre, where she had married ca 1275 or 1278 Narjot de Toucy, to take control of the county, although she was opposed by both the commune and the Genoese. The Genoese, led by Benedetto Zaccaria, tried to install a podesta, an official administrator from Genoa, which would have made Tripoli essentially a Genoese colony.show more
