He was married to Elena de Lacon and had a daughter named Elena who inherited Gallura. Barisone commended his judgeship to Pope Innocent III before he died, so as to protect his daughter's inheritance. He was probably looking at Innocent's succession protecting the rights of Constance and Frederick I of Sicily.[1] There was a conflict in Sardinia following his death in 1203 as various powers sought the marriage of Elena to establish control over Gallura.
