Guy of Cyprus, originally Guy of Lusignan and once king of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem, dies in Nicosia, Cyprus.

Amalric II of Jerusalem (also: Amalric I of Cyprus, born Amalric of Lusignan), Guy's brother, is named his successor because he has no sons or others to inherit his titles. The Lusignan family will continue to rule Cyprus until 1474.

Henry, King of Jerusalem and Count of Champagne, is able to make a treaty with Amalric II. Three of Amalric's sons are married to three daughters of Isabella, two of which were also Henry's daughters.
