Olivier Basselin (ōlēvyā´ bäsəlăN´), 15th cent., French miller of Vire, Normandy. He was one of the Compagnons du Vau de Vire [companions of the Vire valley], who made drinking songs, love songs, and war songs. The oldest surviving collection (1670) of the Vaux de Vire [songs of the Vire], once ascribed to Basselin, was probably the work of Jean Le Houx (d. 1616).
