Maria of Antioch-Armenia
Maria of Antioch-Armenia (1215–1257) was lady of Toron from 1229 to her death. She was the elder daughter of Raymond-Roupen, prince of Antioch, and of Helvis of Lusignan. She derived her title of Lady of Toron and claim to the throne of Armenia from her father.

|House||House of Poitiers|
|Father||Raymond-Roupen of Antioch|
|Mother||Helvis of Lusignan|
Maria's paternal grandmother Alice became lady of Toron when emperor Frederick II, at the end of the Sixth Crusade, negotiated the return of lands conquered by Saladin; Maria succeeded her as she was the closest surviving relative.
- Jean de Montfort (died 1283), lord of Toron and of Tyre
- Humphrey of Montfort (died 1284), lord of Beirut and of Tyre
- Alix, living in 1282 and in 1295
- Helvis, living in 1282 and in 1295
She was the great-granddaughter of Roupen III, prince of Armenia (Roupen III's daughter was Alice), who had been succeeded by his brother Leo I. Maria thus unsuccessfully claimed rights to the throne of Armenia, something her father and grandmother had previously attempted and failed.
