The mother of Hugh VII 'Brunus' de Lusignan's 5 sons was Sarracena/Sarazine (---), documented by Sidney Painter in "The Lords of Lusignan in the Eleventh and Twelfth Centuries" (ed. by Fred A Cazel, Jr in Feudalism and Liberty: Articles and Addresses of Sidney Painter, 1961, pp 56-7). But, as Richard B. says, no evidence of her parents is given.

A charter dated to (1143) records that "Hugo Brunus et filii eius Hugo…de Lezeign," renounced rights which they had usurped from Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers, subscribed by "Willelmus quoque de Lezeign, P. Fortis, et Sarrazina uxor Hugo Bruni, Dyonisia filia eius, uxoris Willelmi de Lezeign." [Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers, CXXX, p. 147].
