Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Conon de B thune (c. 1150 in the former Artois region, today Pas-de-Calais - December 17, 1219 or 1220, in or near Constantinople or perhaps Adrianople) was a crusader and "trouv re" poet.Born in 1150, he was the 10th son of Robert V, seigneur of B thune and justice officer (avou ) of the Abbey of Saint-Vaast of Arras (in today's Pas-de-Calais), who died at the siege of Acre in 1191. Through his grandmother, Conon de B thune was related to the ruling Hainaut family in Flanders. It is probable (from comments made in one of his poems) that Conon appeared before the French court at the occasion of the marriage of king Philippe Auguste with Isabelle of Hainaut in 1180 and sang his songs before Marie de Champagne (noted for her connection to Chr tien de Troyes).show more
