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.
