 Les Chétifs

Although dealing with events set during the course of the First Crusade, the song Chétifs contains references to the circumstances of its own composition, supposedly at the court of Raymond of Poitiers, prince of Antioch (r. 1136-1149). See this site's overview essay for more information on this text.
