Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hugues IV de Berz (1150/1155 - 1220) was a knight and trouv re from the M connais. He participated in the Fourth Crusade in 1201 and the Fifth Crusade in 1220. He was the lord of Berz -le-Ch tel. Hugues wrote at least five lyric poems that are preserved in various chansonniers. His last one was written to the troubadour Falquet de Romans, asking his friend to participate in the Crusade with him outra mar. Hugues sent his poem with the jongleur Bernart d'Argentau and it forms an important source of information about both poets. According to Hugues, neither he nor Falquet were young at the time. Hugues was dead by August 1220, which provides an ante quem date for the poem. Hugues is referred to as N'Ugo de Bersie in the Occitan razo that accompanies the poem in the chansonnier.
