    Hendrik was under tremendous pressure from the Bishopric of Utrecht and the Duchy of Holland, and was forced by Holland to negotiate a treaty with the city of Utrecht; this led to a problematic relation with the Bishop of Utrecht.

Jean I of Nesle

M, b. 1153, d. 1214

Parents

Family: Elisabeth de Lambersart (b. circa 1153)

Biography

  • Birth: Jean I of Nesle was born in 1153.
  • Death: He died in 1214, at age ~61.
  • Note: Blondel de Nesle, either Jean I of Nesle (c. 1155-1202) or his son Jean II of Nesle (d. 1241), was a French trouvère.

    Blondel de Nesle's name is attached to 24-25 works. He was identified in 1942 by Holger Dyggve as Jean II of Nesle (near Amiens), who was nicknamed "Blondel" for his long blond hair. He married at the time of his father's death in 1202, and that same year went on the Fourth Crusade. He later also fought in the Albigensian Crusade. However, in 1994 Yvan Lepage suggested that the poet may be Jean I, father of Jean II, who was Lord of Nesle from 1180 until 1202. This Jean took part in the Third Crusade, which may explain the subsequent legend linking him with Richard I of England.

    If the works are correctly identified and dated, he was a significant influence on his European contemporaries, who made much use of his melodies. (The melody of L'amours dont sui espris is used in the Carmina Burana for the song Procurans odium). His works are fairly conventional. Several have been recorded in modern times.

    By 1260, Blondel's name had become attached to a legend in the highly fictionalised Récits d'un ménestrel de Reims. This claimed that after Richard I of England was arrested and held for ransom in 1192, he was found by the minstrel Blondel, whom he saw from his window, and to whom he sang a verse of a song they both knew. Later versions of the story related that Blondel went from castle to castle singing a particular song, and that the imprisoned Richard replied with the second verse — thus identifying where he was imprisoned. Then Blondel either aided the king's escape or reported his position back to his friends. Blondel finally found Richard at Dürnstein. In fact, there was no mystery about Richard's location.

    'Blondel' is a common surname on the Channel Island of Guernsey. It is recorded that King Richard I granted a fief on the island to a vassal named Blondel, but it remains uncertain as to whether this has any connection with the legend, or whether the legend has any connection with the known trouvère.
