Pierre Vidal, who started his career in the early 1180’s, was a mixture of publicist and lover. He “was of Tolulouse the son of a furrier, and he sang better than any man in the world, and he was one of the most foolish men that ever lived, for he believed that all tings that pleased him, or that he wished, were true. And song-making came more eaily to him than to any man in the world, and it was he who made the richest melodies and talked the greatest nonsense about war and love and slandering of others.”

-- in Lindsay, The Troubadours and their world
