Do we have any examples of actual troubadour stuff ?

Was it about courtly love, or what ?



Good questions, and ones I intend to answer when I get around to it

Regarding the claim that the first troubadours came from Spain: I can find nothing to justify this assertion. The Cantigas de Santa Maria and the Martin Codax are the only Spanish troubadour books I know, and they are both 13th century.

Unless somebody can offer proof that the troubadour tradition began in Spain (read Catalonia, Aragon, Castile or Leon) I am going to edit out references to Spanish origin.
