'''Guilhem de Peitieu''' (1071-1126) as IX [[Duke]] of [[Aquitaine]] and VII [[Count]] of Poitiers was one of the most powerful overlords of his day. More important to [[music]]al [[historian]]s is the fact that he is considered to be the first of the [[troubadour]]s.
All the themes that ran through the troubadour tradition can be found in the works of Guilhem. Despite drawing on contemporary [[Latin]] and Hispano-[[Arabic]], his works are startling in their inventiveness. Despite the importance of his work only 11 [[song]]s of his remain to us, one of which is of dubious attribution and none of which have melodies, though there is a melodic fragment from a later document that seems to fit one of these songs.
