Aimeric de Peguilhan
Aimeric's first patron was Raimon V of Toulouse, followed by his son Raimon VI. However, he fled the region at the threat of the Albigensian Crusade and spent some time in Spain and ten years in Lombardy. It is said that he had secretly loved a neighbour while living in Toulouse, and that it was for her that he returned.
Aimeric is known to have composed at least fifty works, the music for six of which survives:
- Atressi·m pren com fai al jogador
- Cel que s'irais ni guerrej' ab amor
- En Amor trop alques en que·m refraing
- En greu pantais m'a tengut longamen
- Per solatz d'autrui chan soven
- Qui la vi, en ditz
