Chrétian de Troyes was a 12th Century French poet celebrated for his Arthurian romances. He spent a lot of time in the court of Marie de Champagne (daughter of Eleanor of Aquitaine), her patronage possibly influencing him to write based on the Anglo-Saxon Arthurian tales. Works known to be written by him include:

  • Erec and Enide (c. 1170),
  • Cliges (c. 1176)
  • Yvain, (1177 to 1181)
  • Lancelot (1177 to 1181)
