Title : Alamanda de Castelnau - Une "trobairitz" dans l'entourage des comtes de Toulouse? [The author suggests an historical identity for "bell' ami' Alamanda" who appears in a debate poem with the troubadour Giraut de Bornelh. Giraut asks Alamanda to intercede on his behalf with the lady whom he loves. Alamanda agrees but reminds him of the faults that he has committed. Rieger suggests Alamanda belonged to a powerful family which supported the counts of Toulouse. Her education at their court would have prepared her to compose poetry as did the "trobairitz," female troubadours. Title note provided by Feminae.]
