I  haven't seen the movie yet but in the currently released "Kingdom  of
Heaven" (the crusader flick starring Orlando Bloom) one of  the
villians is Guy de Lusignan.  This is one of the adventurers  mentioned
in the poem "El Desdichado" by Gérard de Nerval mined by Eliot  for
"The Waste Land" ("Le Prince d'Aquitaine à la tour abolie").   Lusignan
became King of Jerusalem and then later, after being beaten by  Saladin
and sucking up^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H swearing fealty to Richard  the
Lionhearted, bought Cyprus from Richard and started a new dynasty  there.
